This may sound strange but I just love concrete. What’s not to love about concrete? Concrete is a composite material with countless uses ranging from building foundation to kitchen countertops. Not to mention it’s cheap. Much cheaper than, say, marble. You could say that concrete has an advantage over marble because it gives that rustic/industrial look that marble can’t quite achieve.
After Monday’s post I’ve decided to incorporate more stripes in my life. Why not? They’re timeless and classic.
I can’t believe I didn’t include a picture of West Elm’s Striped shower curtain in Monday ‘s post, Big Bold Stripes. I think I’m going to have to order one in Navy or Gray for my apartment… It also comes in yellow but I’m not really a yellow person.
Brass finishes are a huge trend right now and I’m so glad. Most of the time I absolutely prefer a brass finish over any finish on hardware, lighting, plumbing and furniture. I especially love an antique brass finish. However, I would be a little hesitant to use brass hardware and plumbing in my own home (as if I have a choice in my apartment!). I think I’m scared that it’s too trendy and I’ll get sick of it after a while. But if you think about it, replacing the knobs and pulls in a kitchen or bathroom is really not that big of a deal. My kitchen and bathroom cabinets don’t even have hardware, otherwise I might consider ordering some of these gorgeous brass pulls from Restoration Hardware:
Sooo I was looking through my pinterest boards last night (a little bored), trying to find inspiration for future blog posts, and I realized that one particular pin was repinned wayyyy more than any other pin. It really surprised me how much attention this one pin received… There are so many other pins I like better. But people are weird…. Oh well. Funny enough, this is from my “bathroom” board. Don’t get me wrong, I love everything about it and I know it’s gorgeous, but I wonder “why this one?”!? :)
