Lulu & Georgia Giveaway and Bathroom Styling

bathroom styling // simplified bee

Our new bathroom still needed a little styling especially one wall above the toilet. I teamed up with Lulu & Georgia for some super chic decor items for the space. I instantly fell in love with a photograph of a beautiful cactus plant. The gray tones and organic pattern look amazing with the marble tile. Love it! I also spotted the Retrograd Vase and liked it’s mid-century modern vibe. I filled it with succulents from my garden for a pop of color. To finish out the look, I selected a three wick candle housed in a timeless tin with a metallic knob. The cedar with scent with hints of vanilla is amazing. Every bathroom needs a candle like this – and don’t forget to pair it with an adorable matchbox like this! And for a limited time, grab some for yourself at 20% OFF at LuLu & Georgia using discount code: BEE20 (expires 10/22/14).

Friday Find :: Schumacher 125th Anniversary

Schumacher turns 125! In celebration, the legendary American textile company is pulling from its archives some of its most iconic patterns and reinterpreting them for today. Schumacher’s 125th Anniversary collection consists of a wide variety of patterns that span different influences, periods, and styles. It’s fabulous and I can’t pick a favorite, but have narrowed a few to share for this week’s Friday Find:

citrus garden // schumacher fabric #citrus #fabric

Citrus Garden – Based on an archival botanical pattern that acclaimed midcentury architect Josef Frank designed for the house in 1947

Flame Stitch // Schumacher Fabrics #blue

Valkyrie Flame Stitch – First introduced in 1972, this classic motif traces its roots to 15th century central Europe

Shengyou Toile in indigo // Schumacher 125 Anniversary Fabrics #chinoiserie

Shengyou Toile – Hand drawn toile based on an 18th-century Oberkampf document by Jean-Baptiste Pillement, a court painter to Marie Antoinette

Indian Arbre Fabric // Schumacher 125th Anniversary Collection #textiles #blue

Indian Arbre – Featuring the timeless tree of life pattern, this hand-painted fabric is inspired by traditional Indian palampore that was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century

Congratulations Schumacher and here’s to 125 more fabulous years!

happy decorating,

cristin

Halloween Decoration Ideas

Holy cow, Halloween is almost here and I’m behind the eight ball! My kids have been pointing out some of the homes in the neighborhood that have already decorated for the spooky holiday and asking when we will decorate our own home. This weekend I tell them knowing that I’ll have to keep my promise.

So to get me and many of you inspired and motivated for Halloween decorating, I’ve pulled several of my most popular images from my Halloween Pinterest board to share.

$500 Home Depot Gift Card Giveaway by Extra Space Storage

extra storage space // giveaway on simplifiedbee.com #giveaway #storage

Downsizing yet, not wanting to part with family keepsakes and furniture? Overflowing with must keep documents or books? Simply in transition and need temporary storage? Whatever the reason, extra storage space is often times a necessity in getting organized. However, handing over your precious collections, heirloom furniture and cherished books to just any storage company can be a costly mistake. That’s why I was thrilled to learn about Extra Space Storage and how they pride themselves at being the best in four different areas – customer service, cleanliness, convenience and security. With 1,000+ facilities and 25+ years in the business, their mission is clear – to make the self storage experience as convenient and hassle-free as possible. The folks at Extra Space take the business of storing people’s belongings, keepsakes and memories very seriously. Which is why their facilities implement the highest security technology, perimeter fencing and the majority have a manager that lives on site. They even have climate controlled units available for those family photos, antiques and artwork you want to preserve.
