Hi.

I'm Kerra Michele, and this is my dog, Lunchbox. Welcome to our blog! We generally write about easy tips to make a rental space feel more like home, but we also talk about our life and travels. I hope you like our stories and adventures!

I don't know about you guys but my bathroom is SMALL. Worse than that? It's very ugly. Let us assess the situation. Small Tiny Bathroom Before

Just like my kitchen, the bathroom is a mash-up of various dingy, once-white elements and high-gloss white walls. People, please. If your walls are to be high-gloss white and you have anything -- and I mean ANYTHING -- else white in the room, then it has to be BRIGHT WHITE. And I mean sparkling. Write that down.

I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with my bathroom but it will likely involve paint and framed art, since that's my standard method of operation. Whenever I'm unsure of something I generally head to Apartment Therapy for support and inspiration, as they've been around a long time and have lots and lots of photos for me to admire. (I hope more readers start sending in photos of their spaces for me to share!) I found many lovely things to show you. I'll begin with the easiest fix: Paint!

These are things I have WAY too much of. I can't help myself; I collect things. And with friends like these it's impossible not to cover my walls with photos!

You don't need a large space to make a big impact. In fact, I think the BEST place to make dramatic design choices is in a small room. You can do something crazy and, since it's just a small amount of crazy, it's completely acceptable and easy to live with. Wallpaper and other wall designs are great examples of this. Put them in a small space and MAGIC HAPPENS. And you don't hate yourself the next day because it's just a few square feet of insane happiness!

He was looking a little too relaxed yesterday, anyway. I'll be back on Monday with some more inspiration and a bathroom reveal. Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!
