The West Midtown Project guest bathroom recently got a fabulous upgrade with the help of The Home Depot. This full bath is by the second bedroom and desperately needed some personality, plus some functional updates to bring it up to the level of the rest of the house. The main priorities included replacing the plastic shower kit and pedestal sink and adding in a small bathtub and vanity with storage. I enjoyed using a couple of key tools from The Home Depot’s website and mobile app to get all the help I needed completing this small bathroom renovation! Read on to see how the new design came together.

WEST MIDTOWN PROJECT: CUSTOM LINEN CURTAINS FOR THE LIVING ROOM

Custom tall sheer white linen curtains for double-story living room window on Thou Swell #curtains #drapery #linen #livingroom #livingroomdesign #livingroomdecor #homedecorideas

The latest update from the West Midtown living room includes a major decor game-changer. Curtains have always been one of my favorite ways to change a space, from hiding bad architecture to softening large rooms, and this room was definitely in need of the latter. With a two-story window in the front, the open-floorplan living room continues to the kitchen and dining room behind. It’s hard to make such a tall and open space feel cozy, but the curtains were an investment that definitely paid off! They make this space feel SO luxe and inviting, and I was able to get them made very reasonably by this amazing Etsy shop for custom curtains. See the beautiful white linen fabric close-up below.

MEGHAN’S APARTMENT: MEDIA ROOM MAKEOVER DESIGN PLANS

Dark green living room walls with pops of color, eclectic home decor, living room design on Thou Swell #livingroom #livingroomdesign #livingroomdecor #greenlivingroom #darkgreen #darkgreenwalls #greenwalls (via David Cleveland)

The last room left to be designed in Meghan’s midtown apartment is the media/guest room. Currently, it hold a navy velvet sleeper sectional, white dresser, and light blue Lucca maze area rug. As you might remember from her bedroom makeover, the walls in her apartment are a terrible beige color, so the first to-do will be painting the room. With a more cohesive color palette and a few simple additions from AllModern, I’m hoping the room will feel inviting but simplified – a cozy interpretation of minimalism!
