Charles Baxter wittily noted, “Forget art. Put your trust in ice cream.” We couldn’t agree more! There’s little more refreshing and comforting than a chilly bowl of ice cream on a warm spring afternoon. With the summer heat wave on the cusp (well, at least for us Floridians!) the very thought of ice cream makes our mouths water. So, why not decorate with fresh home decor that remind us of one of our favorite desserts?Read More
The right ambiance can make or break a bubble bath experience. Confession time: How many candles do you surround your tub with hoping their warm glow will distract you from your chunky, dated bathroom accents and the fact that your tub might be a little too small for full reclining? Are you washing between your toes with dawn soap? What is your bathroom decor saying about you?
If you want your bathroom to say, “I love stylish, hand-picked home decor accents and the occasional evening of pampering” — this bathroom is for you! It’s easy to get cozy when you have the essentials like lavish porcelain tubs, bubbly handmade soaps, and rustic mood lighting! Here are our picks for a Shabby Chic Spa Bathroom.
Remember our trip to Tybee Island? We fell in love with the nautical accents and whimsical cottage styles. The beautiful bathroom in Mermaid Manor reminds us how calming a crisp, white palette can be. Our Atomic Topless Streamline Industrial Guard Sconce adds a touch of pastel and the frosted glass emits soft and soothing light. Vintage accents make this space memorable.
Ignore the time but keep the clock with this Lille Tin vintage timepiece. A Vintage Industrial Mirror makes a portable helper for your makeup routine and storage is a breeze with the Nantucket Wall Mounted Toiletry Shelf. Add a touch of nature with this Natural White Birch Forest Wall Art.
Trade in your harsh detergent for the moisturizing Betty’s Luxury Bar Soap!

There’s no novelty space quite like a walk-in closet. Something about entering a room with chicly organized clothing from ceiling to carpet gives us the feeling of luxury and affluence. Unfortunately, not every house is furnished with these novel nooks, but we can still achieve the look of vintage glamour in our dressing spaces with these decorative accessories.
Placing an ornate Chateau Dressing Chair beside your island allows you to utilize the counter top for makeup application and styling while feeling like Hollywood royalty. Try an Industrial Metal Round Standing Mirror for primping and give yourself lots of light with this Decorative Wire Mannequin Table Lamp. The Vintage Century Lighting Broadway Stage Spot Light is a great conversation piece that plays off of the “Old Hollywood” theme.
Other vintage inspired accents like the Lille Tin Wall Clock and sepia Flower Arrangement photograph keep with the monochromatic theme, while mint colored vintage suitcases and Barn Light Electric’s new Jadite Enamelware Cup add a soft palette reminiscent of the famous Tiffany blue. Soft lighting from the Raindrop Chandelier will give your space a romantic, angelic glow—perfect for the modern Doris Day!
For those of you who’ve tried your hand at gardening, I’m sure you can agree that sometimes the experience is all about the accessories. While working in the shade is more tolerable than toiling in the hot sun, it’s important to have ample lighting—especially when trimming plants with sharp gardening tools. The Ivanhoe™ Aero Pendant reflects ample light to any workspace. Vintage inspired accessories like the Giant ‘Electric’ Tin Wall Clock, Canvas Basket with Handles, and Industrial Metal Adjustable Stool are stylish yet practical ways to spiff up your space.
Fortunately, if horticulture isn’t your thing, you can still use these accessories anywhere around the house!
