Dream Spaces

 This post contains affiliate links. 

I just moved back in with my parents and finally got everything situated--cross that off the list! Even though I hated the moving process (who doesn't?), I can't help but dream of when I have my own place.

All things Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware are calling my name!

Today, I'm partnering with Chairish.com, an exclusive, curator approved, online marketplace for vintage and used furniture, to bring you a glimpse of what my dream bathroom would look like--you know, if I wasn't living at home.

If you know anything about me, you'd know I have a soft spot for all things vintage/old and shabby chic (which is what Chairish specializes in!). I mix the old with the pink new to make it my own and I've been doing that for quite some time (read: my whole life. I have my mother to thank for this skill and my dad, who never throws anything away).

For my dream bathroom, I had to keep Josh in mind. After all, we are saving for a house together and it will be his bathroom too!

Lately, I've been so obsessed with gold accents and isn't that pineapple just the cutest?! (P.S. it's vintage!) The blues add a serenity to the room (almost spa-like), while the neutral accents appeal to both male and female (Josh and I) Oh, and I've already decided that we MUST have a stand-alone tub (claw-foot preferably) It's a non-negotiable. 
 
Chairish has SO many great pieces--I could go through the website for hours. I have a feeling some of our decorations for our future home will be coming from here (a VERY strong feeling)
 
Now to convince Josh that we need that pineapple!

  8. Oh my gosh I'd LOVE a clawfoot tub -- so vintage and chic.
    Also, all gold everything has been my mantra lately.
    I just ordered a gold bar cart and all my accessories for it so far have gold accents.
