    I have been finding out through years of trial and error that sometimes you are just not going to be able to finish one a painting all in one shot, focusing on completing on a single painting at a time can mire you down towards the end and when this happens I find that it is a healthy thing for your psyche to be working on a few paintings all at the same time. One of the traps I used to fall into in my earlier days was that all my energies would be so focused on one painting it would be like tunnel vision, I would be so driven with the idea of finishing the work I would most of the time get so frustrated and I would eventually end up destroying it due to a sense of urgency to complete it.

A Bathroom With Character

I love it when homeowners take a chance with bold color. Here, a fresh, white bathroom is grounded by a black ceiling, which unifies the space along with the grey and black tile grout. The industrial ceiling fixture adds even more character. I’m a big fan of taking tile up to the ceiling, it adds height and grandeur to an utilitarian room. A delicate glass shelf adds storage and visual interest. The only thing I’d change? I’d replace the white shower curtain with a geometric print, maybe an Ikat, or other contemporary stripe. Overall, this room gets an “A” grade for style.

Trays–Design Interest and Organization

We love trays, too! Practical and decorative…cannot get enough of them.

S Interior Design- Scottsdale, Arizona Blog

We love trays!  They are fabulous in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, offices and in living and family rooms.  They add color, texture and provide a great way to organize your loose items, group decorative items and protect surfaces.

Options are almost endless.  From mirrored to painted to textures and metals.  Prices range from a few dollars to several hundreds of dollars.  Suffice it to say, there is a tray option for every space, every style and every budget.
