San Francisco Bay-area designer Kriste Michelini uses tile to create a divide between the wet and dry areas of the bathroom. She frequently experiments with unique combinations of tile and uses various tile shapes in the same marble material to create a sense of infinite space.

This marble bath is pretty exquisite, yes? It’s very Lisa Vanderpump if you ask me.
If you’re like me and this summer’s (crazy!) record-breaking high temps have you looking for a weekend project that won’t cause you to break a sweat, then I have just the project for you: reviving your bathroom’s stained grout. Don’t worry, this is WAY easier than it sounds, costs less than $20 and no grinder or chisel is needed.
My sad bathroom floor before. This is the original 1950′s tile and, although you can’t tell, is a beautiful Robin’s egg blue.
Some of us HGTV.com editors are hitting up the International Contemporary Furniture Fair today to scour for delicious design finds. Lili was able to find some great finds last year, and we hope to share some good design inspiration with you this year. Aside from the fair, I hope to eat some gourmet meals and do some (a lot) of shopping. Since I’m feeling inspired by all things NYC, I thought I’d share this amazing Brooklyn Bridge shower curtain by Deny Designs.
The artistic design makes you feel as though you’re in the heart of the city, and it’s my way of bringing a little taste of the Big Apple back home with me.
Today marks the last day of Get Organized Month – how did everyone fare? I managed to clean out the pantry and guest bedroom/catch-all closet, and you’ll be happy to know that both areas still look surprisingly top-notch. If you’re looking to conquer another room today, then you’re in luck because we’re heading to the bathroom. So, to finish off GO Month and help you get organized in one of the smallest rooms in the house, we have a simple project that will transform your bathroom walls in no time.
Get Organized: Fast and Easy Crate Shelving
For most of us, our bathrooms are fairly small and offer little storage. And, of course, we have more perfumes, lotions and soaps than we could ever possibly need. Here’s where vertical wall storage comes into play. Put your favorite and most-used bathroom items on display in a convenient way. Here’s how:
Take wooden crates that are less than 6 inches deep and paint with spray paint. Decide where you want to put them on the wall. (We suggest staggering them a bit so you can use the tops of the crates for storage space, too.) Apply large picture-hanging strips to the backs of each crate (each strip can hold up to 4 pounds), and hang them on the wall in desired placement. Get the Full Step-by-Step Instructions Here >>

Did you attain some level of organization this month? Conquer the catch-all drawer in the kitchen? Clean out your closet’s unworn clothes? Recycle all the magazines you’ve been stashing for five years? Tell us in the comments, and share your tips, too!
I loooove decorating bathrooms. It makes no sense, because the benefits are rarely reaped (except for last year’s bout with food poisoning, but that’s inappropriate to discuss in this forum). I think that’s why I love bathroom designs so much — they’re unexpected and often neglected spaces of the home. In fact, I tend to use as many non-bathroom furnishings as possible in my lavatories, just to make guests twitch. I’m surprising that way.
So naturally, my bathroom ideas are overflowing, (ha! pun!) and I’m absolutely thrilled to share them. We have two bathrooms: one for guests/future kids (not yet, Ma!) and one for ourselves, which happens to be bigger than my first Los Angeles apartment. I’m a lucky girl, indeed.
Care to see what I’ll be doing with each space? Here comes the style board for the master bath suite!
