The deck is the perfect place to relax on a summer evening. We decorated this porch with colorful outdoor throw pillows, twinkling lights, lots of greenery--including ferns and boxwood wreaths from @BalsamHill--and of course a few icy libations. Even when the temperature is sky-high, this space is so inviting! #BalsamHill #SummerHousewalk #LightUpTheNight2016

This master bathroom feels like a spa because of its thoughtful decor and accessories--double mirrors over the vanity instead of a huge sheet mirror, a warm and cozy brown-gray paint, and off white painted cabinets. We added an apothecary jar filled with cotton balls and another one filled with soaps, a pile of thick, fluffy towels, and vintage silver trays on the walls and to catch beauty items.

We decorated this master bath with a combination of new and vintage items. At HomeGoods, we found an apothecary jar to hold cotton balls and a vase for fresh flowers (always a wonderful splurge in a bathroom!). We added a vintage silver tray to hold perfume and powder, and an old sugar bowl to hold cotton swabs--so fun! {sponsored pin}
