As a seasoned photographer I have come to really enjoy the variety of assignments I have been given over the years. There are things I enjoy shooting over others, but I stopped photographing what I wasn’t passionate about and left that to other photographers who really love it. Meanwhile, evolving and working with businesses and meeting fellow business owners is so exciting for me and being able to brand a business with imagery to convey a message, it’s a unique way to stretch my creativity.
These were some of the corporate headshots I took around the Phoenix valley.
I feel like I can build a dream home and decorate it as well with the talented, beautiful individuals I met. For your rolodex pleasure, should you be looking for some friendly Faces of Phoenix, here are a few included in this post – from top to bottom, by row.
My clothing style has been shifting, along with the home projects, the dining room, kitchen, and so on (as in, more to come). I’ve come to realize sometimes, simply clearing out all the accessories and starting with a clean slate and adding in touches can really transform a room – and it’s also very budget friendly in comparison to a demolition.
For the bathroom project I ordered all of my bathroom goodies from Horchow, a beautiful home decor site that has everything from bedding, tabletop, bath, lighting, office, and furniture. Starting today, Horchow is having a Finders Savers Event (ends 9/28). There are different deals across the site from 20%, 30% to 40% and you won’t know the exact discount until you check out for your saving deal.
If you need a bed or bath refresh because items are tired or you’re itching for a new style in your home, dining room, bedroom, anything regarding home – this is the time! Here’s our updated bathroom, you may notice we got new shutters for four of our windows, the bathroom included –
I requested the shutters to have top and bottom shutters separated so you could close the bottoms for privacy but leave the top for natural light. I wanted this space to be clean, and thankfully the vanities I picked are pretty classic and should last a long time so decorating around it to transform the space is easy!
Here are some bathroom tips to redo your style on a budget – without making your husband cringe at the price tag.
Remove everything from the bathroom. Rug, toothbrush, decor, towels everything you can see – curtains and blinds if removable.
Consider the easy fixes. Replace paint color, knobs, fixtures, and curtains. Even a toilet handle would be a nice and affordable upgrade.
Pick your style and theme.
I’ve lived with many different styles over the years, college, first three apartments out of college, first townhome to the house we live in now. Trends change, and so do your tastes as you transition to different stages of your life. Here’s how I decided to spruce up my bathroom, which guests use as well, it’s located right off the hallway.
I love the cane embossed porcelain tumbler to hold my makeup brushes, the pattern was just fun. I think vanity trays are such a great place to designate your items, it kind of just feels more like an area instead of them randomly sitting on a counter corner. It also keeps your items dry incase of a splash from washing your face.
Here’s a better look at my half glass shower door. I absolutely love it and I wanted one after my Ireland trip. It was so convenient getting in and out of the shower and it does swing out as well if you needed full tub access.
I think these touches really updated my bathroom with the new window shutters. It also made me realize what I don’t have to leave on the countertop or on the bathroom shelving – I love how clean it looks!
