Beautiful interiors from Bungalow Staging and Design

I have to keep this on brief, but these images speak for themselves anyway - quiet, serene, and pretty - they offer some calm on a hectic day. Visit the site Bungalow Home Staging for more, and check out co-founder Megan Arquette's blog, Beach Bungalow 8.

A facelift for your mirror - and a discount code for you!

I was introduced to MirrorMate a few weeks ago, and I found their idea to be really creative - and hopefully inspiring to all of you. Pretty much, MirrorMate is a frame that more or less adheres to your mirror. Considering most homes come with plain mirrors in the bathrooms, a frame is a great way to style them up a bit.

Many styles/colors are available, and I was impressed by the quality of the samples. Most were solid wood, and some MDF. The company is also eco-aware which is always a plus with me.

They also generously provided me with a 15% off coupon for you guys! Use the code DECOR15 (good through Dec. 31st, 2009) Go to their site,, to take a look!

Three step instructions:

Has anyone else come up with any cool ideas to dress up a blah mirror?

Relaxed, beautiful homes by photographer Laura Resen

After being in Alaska for a week, I was ready to go home - even if it meant 14 hours of flights and layovers. These gorgeous photos by Laura Resen conjure up the warm feeling I get when I've been on the road too long and thinking of home...

This would be a cheap and easy way to decorate -- some stones found outside, some wildflowers from the yard, some glass vessels around the house...

What an awesome archive

Colour baths

Well, I'm recouping from Alaska and have for you one last (but not least), guest post. This one is super fun and comes to you from Trudi of The Deco Detective - who really helped me out and supported me by spreading the word about my fund raising and marathon training. Thanks Trudi! And I'm with you - I would've loved the turquoise bathroom!

Hi, I'm Trudi aka The Deco Detective! I'm here today to help Ashley out while she's away running the marathon to cure lymphoma. I'm so honoured to be asked to do a guest post at Decorology, but most of all, I'm very impressed with Ashley. I think she's really brave to sign up for a marathon!

After running marathons, I can imagine that a beautiful, luxurious bathroom will feel like heaven to sore feet and beaten muscles. To relieve things a little for her, I've picked seven bathrooms for Ashley to choose between when she's finished running. There's one bathroom for each colour of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, indigo and violet:

I hope you find (at least) one bathroom you like, Ashley. I'm curious to know which one you'll choose! And Decorology readers: which one would you pick after running a marathon? I think I'd prefer the turquoise one to cool myself off - although me running a marathon would be a purely hypothetical situation...

Ashley - good luck with your running! We'll all cheer you on from the sidelines, even if we're not there in person.
