Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Bathroom

A recent trip to Anthropologie turned in to a bathroom zhushing session.  Although the changes made a big impact, they were very simple and easy, so I thought I'd share them with you!  

The first thing I did was place a few Design Darling mini boxwoods by my sink.  I felt like my bathroom was feeling a little bland and needed a little life.  What better way to do that then with a potted plant?  Boxwoods are perfect indoor plants because they require little to no maintenance (no sunlight needed, spritz with water about once a month).  Fake plants don't count!

The embroidered towel is from Anthro.  The pattern is beautiful, and to me it's almost a piece of decorative art!  Don't worry, that doesn't stop me from wiping my hands on it.  :)  I am a big proponent of pretty linens.  The blue and silver towels hanging by my tub are new.  When I spotted them I was in love.  They work well with the decorative sun mirrors I purchased from One Kings Lane.

 I spent a lot of nights soaking in the tub with a magazine and glass of wine, so I found a cute wooden basket to store my magazines in:

Pretty soaps and more hand towels around the tub:

As most of you know, I don't believe in keeping products (or really anything) you don't use or need.  I keep only my "must have" products in my drawer.  To make the storage pretty, I took a hot pink perfume box and turned it in to a basket:

To keep the drawers clean, I lined all of them with a pretty grasscloth paper:

I also added a few framed photos, decorative soaps, and a favorite candle to my bathroom counters.

Now I love walking in to my bathroom!  It's crazy how a few small changes can warm up a space.  What do you think?  Do you have any additional tips?
I hope you are having a good week so far!
