Home Design

Hello June!

Hi there!

I can hardly believe it’s already June! June means summer is literally just around the corner! And with summer creeping up on us, I wanted to do some changes around the house.

I find that any time of the year is a great time to renovate home décor but even more so when seasons change. But remodeling does not need to equate to spending loads of money. There are simple changes that can be made on a budget that can give a room a refreshing new look.

So with that in mind, I recently made two changes at home- one in the kitchen and one in the master bathroom. Although they were minimal alterations, I felt that they were sufficient to bring new looks to the rooms.

The weather is getting warmer and I wanted to add some warmth into the kitchen so I decided to change the curtains. I went to Joann’s and purchased a peach and turquoise fabric. I made the curtains myself which made this project quite inexpensive. Don’t let that intimidate you though; you don’t need mad skills with the sewing machine to make curtains (well, not this style at least ;). These curtains were made with simple straight stitches.

The second change was made in the master bathroom.

Lately I’ve been noticing a trend in bathrooms with beautifully patterned tile floors. Though I find these tiles to be striking, I didn’t want to go through the trouble of ripping out my existing tile floor! So instead, I opted to purchase a rug that would give the illusion of a new tile floor 😉 I purchased a rug online and was quite pleased with its quality, color and pattern.

And with that, my bathroom and kitchen have been recharged and are ready for the long summer days 😀

I hope these ideas inspire you to make a change or two too! Thanks for stopping by!

Best wishes,
Anabela
