"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Budget friendly vanities

I am lovin these vanities from Ikea!  You pick your base, style of countertop with integrated sinks and faucets for around $700.00!  You can also mount these to the wall or add legs depending on the look you want.  Not everyone can do custom vanities and this is a great option that won't break the bank.  There are other ways to make your bathroom feel custom like adding wallpaper on the vanity wall, interesting floor tile or backsplash, a roman blind in a great pattern and then of course some great accessories to complete the look.

  1. Love the vanities - Not so much the faucets. They are all too bulky. But who said you can't get your faucets somewhere else ;)

  2. So true. I like the first faucet. Thanks for your comment!
