A Camera Party

by Casey Baudoin

A camera party would be fun for your photographer friend, a 50th anniversary (all those memorable photos!) or even a 1st birthday party.  Stick to one style of camera, or mix it up with vintage, digital, and photo booths!

Lowe’s Deck the Halls: The Bathroom

Earlier this month, I shared photos from the bedroom I decorated for Lowe’s Deck the Hall event in New York City. For that same event, I also designed a guest bathroom which turned out so great!

When I found out I was designing the bathroom, I knew right away that I wanted to add floor-to-ceiling subway tile (with dark grout.) It makes the room feel clean and simple, but has such a powerful impact. Then, I knew I wanted to bring in lots of chrome details. There’s just something so fresh about chrome in the bathroom. I’m especially obsessed with these chrome lights I found on Lowe’s website! I love that you wouldn’t normally expect to find them over a bathroom mirror. Storage in the bathroom is a big deal for me, so I made sure to incorporate lots of baskets to for towels and toiletries. Finally, I added in pops of red through berry branches and bead garlands. Overall, the room was a success – and it makes me want to start renovating my new bathroom as soon as possible! Thanks again to Ashley Norton who helped me pull everything together on the day of the event.
