on my radar: modern dressers repurposed as bathroom vanities

I am very much loving the trend of taking modern wood dressers and repurposing them as bathroom vanities. This is a great choice for a bathroom because it brings a lot of warmth to a space that is otherwise full of hard materials and cold surfaces.

Without a countertop you run the risk of ruining the wood with water or product stains, so I'd only recommend doing this in a guest bathroom or powder room. If it's used in a main bathroom I suggest having a piece of stone fabricated to fit the top like these pieces below:

In case you didn't want to track down the perfect piece of furniture to use for your vanity, I've included some of my favorite furniture inspired vanities below. My absolute favorite is number five. It almost makes me wish we had another bathroom to remodel in our house!

forest green + a new "man cave"

I've been brainstorming ideas for Charlie's "man room" and I keep finding myself drawn to deep, forest green walls. This color is totally different than what I normally gravitate towards, but I'm up for the challenge. Last week I shared where I'm incorporating this color into the upholstery of a project I'm working on, and I'm totally ready to try it in my own home!

Choosing the right color for the walls is going to be difficult, because this green can go wrong so quickly. I've been looking at Shamrock and Evergreens by Sherwin-Willams and Chopped Chive and Painted Turtle from Behr. These are all totally different from each other, and the furniture we decide on is what is going to help make the final decision. I'm almost 100% sold on this sofa for the room.

There will definitely be some Eames Lounge Chair action, along with a wall of his guitars, lots of wood, and major pops of gold.

I also found this fab photography on Society 6 (my new obsession) to add with our other Marfa prints.

I can. not. wait. to see how it turns out. Who knew I'd get so excited for a man room!
