Our Mid-Century home is perfect for the way we live. It seamlessly blends the indoors with the outdoors, combines many textures and has an effortless flow to it. It's also in need of many updates. Having just renovated our kitchen, other wish-list projects are temporarily on hold, but that hasn't stopped me from tweaking here and there. Adding something as plain as a round mirror to the kids' bathroom has made quite thedifference. It expands the space and speaks to the style of the home better than the frosted square one that it replaced. See the before and afters below:
One of the first things done to the bathroom was a bamboo mural painted by our neighbor, who is a very talented artist. I love the ethereal quality it brings to the space.
Post cards around the mirror serve a double purpose. They hide scratches and holes in the wall (from the previous mirror) while providing daily inspirational messages.
Because I needed a specifically sized, unframed mirror, I had a local glass company custom make one. It turned out to be relatively inexpensive and very easy to install. Eventually, the entire bath will be redone, but for now even the slightest of changes keeps my design cravings at bay. At least for a while...
If you've made small improvements to your place I'd love to know about them.
