My New Addition Sneak Peek & Cleaning with Pledge®

Doesn’t it feel good to wrap up a project? That’s the way I’m feeling this week as the finishing touches are completed on the new addition in our home. It’s been four months of hammering, debris and dust but, the result was worth all these minor inconveniences. I’m not quite prepared to show you the project in its entirety, but would like to share some sneak peeks of some of the finishes that were selected and on Instagram.

You must have guessed I would select a hexagon pattern for the bathroom floor 🙂 This one is in carrara marble.

The shower will feature a steam shower (Mr. Steam of course) and will soon be my favorite spot in the whole house.

I went round and round with what surface to select for the bathroom vanity, but in the end I selected a charcoal gray quartz. Super durable. Love the contrast it has with the all white vanity too.

The new walk-in closet is another favorite space. It’s in a driftwood gray laminate. It’s really stunning. I’ll go into more detail about this later 🙂

hardwood floors + hide rug //

For the bedroom and to coordinate with the rest of the house, we selected white oak floors in a natural stain. New hardwood floors are the best. I’ve layered them with a super soft silvery hide rug.

As I mentioned, all of the dust from the construction has added up. And before we can move all of our furnishings, clothing and personal items into the new space, it needed to be cleaned. You may remember the traditional Pledge in the yellow can? Did you know Pledge® also makes cleaners for floors and other surfaces in your home? The nice folks at Pledge sent me some of their newer products out in my own home to test for myself. Pledge’s Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner was a favorite because it easily removes dust, fingerprints and smudges from a variety of surfaces including wood, marble, chrome, granite, glass and stainless steel. It was the perfect all in one cleaner from counters to windows to shelves.

Attending BlogHer 2014 in San Jose this weekend? If so, please drop by the SC Johnson booth and say hi! I’ll be helping share design and organizing tips in the “living room” where Pledge® is being showcased. Product demos will be going on all day as well and we’d love to send you home with a sample to try in out yourself. In addition there will be some fabulous prizes including five chances to win Pledge® products and a $50 Visa gift. There will also be two chances to win a grand prize; all the must-haves for family game night including a collection of board games OR an XBOX One. The booth will also showcase other SC Johnson products including Ziploc, Shout, Glade and Scrubbing Bubbles. If you can’t make BlogHer, join the conversation on Twitter or Instagram using #Pledge2Reset!

happy decorating,

    Nice meeting you at BlogHer! A steam shower? I’m jealous. A spa that I go to has that. wow!

    Where did you get the bench fixture for your shower? I’m looking for something similar. Thanks
