We'd be lying if we said we didn't binge watch Marie Kondo's recent netflix series, Tidying Up. There's just something about a clean and tidy (but beautifully designed!) space that we'll never tire of! We've adopted nearly all of Marie's tips for tidying up and organizing but our biggest takeaway has been to "remove items that don't bring us joy!"
When it comes to bathrooms we go the extra mile to ensure they're minimally decorated, while still reflecting the homeowner's style. We choose a few necessities for the countertops with the intention of simplifying daily routines but we also choose one or two items designed simply to bring joy! A beautiful orchid or a deliciously scented candle typically do the trick!
If you're ready to beautify and tidy up your bathrooms, we've got a few tips to share!
Tip #1: Choose luxurious towels.
Towels are the perfect bathroom accessory to reflect your personal style and really make a statement! When it comes to minimal design, it's all about quality over quantity. You don't need more things, you need fewer better things! Kasstex is the Cape House favorite in the bath department. The colors and patterns are stunning and they're plush! What's not to love?!
Tip #2: Keep Your Color Scheme Soft
A soft color palette is our personal preference in bathrooms. Soft tans, blues and greens can typically be spotted in a Cape House designed home. This helps us achieve the "spa-like" feel that clients are always asking for! It's easy to add rugs and texture to compliment a softer color palette. From your rugs to your hand towels, lighter is almost always better!
Tip #3: Let the lights and mirrors do the talking!
Lighting and mirrors can truly become the jewelry of your home, especially in small space like bathrooms! With limited space, minimal furniture, and just a few accessories... your light and mirrors can easily steal the show! Pro tip: We like to think about these pieces as art! Pairing an interesting oyster shell mirror with a sleek polished nickel wall sconce or a simple mirror with a more ornate vanity light is key! Let one or the other become your focal point!
