"I'm scared of my files."

What a lot you've all got done! I got to feel a little kinship with you all as my to do list on Sunday was as follows (while SKGR vacuumed the entire interior):
1. Removed dead mouse from garbage can under sink (the 5th one!)
2. Clean entire area and cans with bleach
3. (While in the yard doing the former) Raked up all the leaves...


4. Emptied compost from the past season on all the plant beds
5. Raked all plant beds with the new soil and relocated compost
6. Folded up and put away outdoor chairs and table

Isn't it amazing how much you realize you did when you list it? It's particularly helpful for someone like myself who didn't plan on doing any of this (but #1) and sort of got swept up in it all. That happens a lot.

This week is a bit of a reprieve. Ahead is the home stretch and behind are the biggest trouble spots. This week pulls back to focus on your bathroom - a place of function and luxury. If you are fascinated with toothpaste, this may give you a chuckle. It also delivers a sermon on lighting, potentially the most important single aspect of interior design in the home.

This Week's Assignment:

In the deep treatment the overall theme is peacefulness. As you clean out your bathroom(s), I want you to get to a point where you are able to put some calming luxury back into them. If you don't have them already, there are some purchases to be made here that can change your bathroom experience.

Very nice kitchen at mteson's. We, too, love the diagonal checkered floor and the chalkboard paint usage.

In the One Room Remedy take a good look at the lighting in your home. I find that most homes are underlit and that most that seem drab or uninspired could be turned around simply by addressing the lighting alone. Get adventurous! Lighting can be very affordable and different kinds of lights will really make your home leap to life. Oh, and there's some painting to do this week for some. Enjoy our small tutorial on how to paint a room. It's basic, but we find that it always helps to remember it when we're painting a room.

It's cool to see this style tray from askdzign. This is the type of thing that we'd like to make easier online at AT.

This is a super cool pic from Angel's Lens. She's added curtains and lettering in her kitchen AND she shows how to do it!
