Your bathroom should be a reflection of your personal style, not an impersonal space that says nothing about you. Put as much thought into the decoration of your bathroom as you do into any other room in your house. If you take the time to pick out the perfect design elements for your bathroom, from bath rugs to cabinet knobs, you can create a bathroom that is an expression of your unique style. Even things as seemingly generic as bathroom showers can be used to demonstrate your taste.
A simple touch like putting some bath chenille rugs on the floor gives your bathroom a more personal feel. Look for rugs with designs or patterns that you find particularly attractive. Choosing bath anti-microbial rugs keeps your bathroom more hygienic at the same time. In rooms with bathroom corner showers, choose a brightly-colored shower curtain or one with a striking pattern. Remember, your bathroom does not have to be a purely functional space. Hanging some favorite pieces of art on the wall or displaying figurines on the counter adds a quirky feel to the room. If you like decorative soaps, display some of your favorites in an attractive container. Use scented candles to add a pleasing aroma to your bathroom, or scatter flower petals on the counter for a natural scent.
The more time you spend planning out the design of your bathroom, the more luck you have in making it uniquely individual. Even in a small space, there are still many things you can do to express yourself.

As women, we tend to be drawn to girly colors, like the large bean bag above. Thankfully, interior decoration also has progressed so much that they consider red and orange, such lively colors, as accents and totally acceptable pieces of furniture in a home. Who doesn’t want a bean bag? It’d be a perfect piece to add to any place in the house, be it the dining room or bedroom!

I was browsing through several fashion blog sites and came upon a feature called “Best of 2011″. Seeing all these lovely ladies (ehem, Miranda Kerr just gave birth?!) made me want to almost take out all the unused yoga mats in my closet and take them out from their yoga mat bags. Love this feature. I think it sums up 2011 quite perfectly, fashion and celebrity-wise. Onwards to 2012!

The model and new mom graced tons of glossy covers this year and walked in multiple runway shows, including Stella McCartney, Christian Dior, and Lanvin — not to mention the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show just last month. Not only does she look great on the runway, but she has enviable street style as well, always looking effortlessly chic and cool even while toting baby Flynn.

She had a big year, hitting the silver screen in Monte Carlo, embarking on a nationwide tour, and presenting and performing at various music awards shows — all while in risk-taking runway gowns and sleek, sophisticated hair and makeup.

Perhaps you live alone or are still living with your parents sharing a common bathroom; it can be a challenge making sure your bath vanities do not overflow with your vanity items.
If you can remodel or have the freedom to do what you want with the bathroom, there are a couple of things you need to think about first before buying the bath vanities you liked on the spot or the deal wholesale bathroom vanities are offering at the home depot.
1. Make a list of your needs – grooming, cosmetics, dental care, cleaning products, medical supplies – that need to be in the bathroom. This will help you determine how big or small you vanity will be.
2. Make sure to measure the space in your bathroom where your bathroom vanity will be placed in.
3. Decide on the style. But do not get caught up on the style too much, think of the traffic your bathroom will receive too. For example, double sink bath vanities are good choice in areas that receive high traffic (multiple users/family members). If kids will be using the vanity too, it will be wiser to get something that is durable to wear and tear and stains.
4. Don’t underestimate storage space. Get more vanity storage space than you think you need. In the years to come, you are often going to need more space than you have.
Decorating your bedroom should be an enjoyable task. Lighting plays a big part in any room in your house, but more so in the bedroom as it helps set the mood you want to have in your private sanctuary. You might bedside table lamps for a little night reading and to serve as your night lamp too. You can get the usual modern table lamps that have sleek lines and a chrome finish with a yellow light diffuser as a table lamps lighting fixture. It really would depend on you.
But here are some guidelines to help you choose. These are tips from Real Simple.
Height: The right size depends on the height of your night table, but most experts agree that to keep you from staring up into the shade, a bedside lamp shouldn’t top 30 inches when it’s next to a tall bed. If you like to read in bed, you’ll want the light to fall on the page, not in your partner’s eyes.
Base: A bedside lamp shouldn’t be flimsy, but it shouldn’t be hulking, either. You’ll need room on the table for an alarm clock, reading glasses, and your book, for example.
Positioning: Place the lamp close to the wall to make space on the table for other essentials.
Shade: Keep the shade small so you won’t bang into it when you’re fumbling for the alarm clock. Metal shades can help direct light onto a book but can seem cold in a bedroom. Fabric and paper shades are best.
Bulb: A two-bulb cluster allows you to use different wattages: one bright for reading, one dim for relaxing.
