BOTB 7.5.13

July 5th, 2013

Hello hello, I hope you all had a happy Fourth! I read that so many friends on the east coast were hit with rain and festivities were canceled. :(  I’m so sorry.  We’re in Las Vegas at my parents’ house and the temperatures are 110 degrees in the shade, but we’ve spent most of our time taking dips in the pool to cool off.

Today it’s another Friday edition of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ and I’m loving these refreshed spaces and inspiring ideas. We’ll kick it off with two fab bathroom makeovers, this first sophisticated gray & white bathroom completed by Kathryn Lemaster, don’t miss the before photos!

Next up, my friends Layla and Kevin worked some magic in their half bath, transforming it with a soothing palette with paneling, wallpaper, and a dresser vanity.

Also announcing a change happening. The BH&G Centsational Style blog will be retired (not Centsational Girl!) and instead I’ll be posting once a week on the BH&G Style Spotters blog starting in August. All of the content I wrote for BH&G will be archived, it won’t disappear! But I welcome the change and I’m truly excited to join the contributors over at Style Spotters.

I’ll still be sharing the same design related content as I have for the past year and I’ll be sure to update you when new articles post. Or simply subscribe to Style Spotters to get all the latest articles from the group of talented contributors!

Wishing you all a fabulous Fourth of July! Have a fantastic holiday everyone, enjoy the fun, friends, family, food and fireworks!
