DIY / TOILET PAPER HOLDERS

DIY Toilet Paper Holder

i am VERY excited about this one. one night natalie and i were hanging around her house eating thai food, as usual, and we concepted this idea to upgrade your toilet paper holders in a stylish way. these are something everybody has in their homes, and they are very rarely given second thought when it comes to design. but why not? it’s so simple and can make a bathroom look that much cooler!

so we decided to make a little project out of it. we thought of hotels that we loved and designed TP holders based on their aesthetic. because we’re weird like that. but i truly love how this came out! i need to change the holder in my bathroom immediately. now, let’s get to the project and how you can make your own…

THE ACE HOTEL in PALM SPRINGS
the ace hotel is mid-century desert modern

supplies:

• drawer pull (ours are from anthropologie here, here, here, and here. i also love this one.)

• half inch tube or pipe cut to six inches in length, you can use brass or copper pipe, we love clear acrylic tubes because you can slip any kind of colored paper or fabric inside like you see here. plexi tubes can be found online here.

• 24 inches of leather cord, rope, twine or ribbon, whichever suits your fancy

how to:

• make loops at either end of your cord that are large enough to fit around the drawer pull easily.

• drill a hole in your wall that is just slightly smaller than the hardware on the back of the drawer pull and twist the pull into the wall to create a knob.

BRI’S FUTURE HOTEL OF HER DREAMS
if my dreams come true one day and i can design a hotel, it would be scandinavian inspired with no shortage of color…

• feed the cord through the pipe and hang both loops on the knob.

THE BEACH HOTEL in TULUM
the beach was understated luxury in a relaxed natural environment

• to replace your TP simply pull one loop off the knob and feed the cord through the TP roll. it’s as easy as that!

THE VICEROY in LA
classic sophistication and contemporary chic

THESE RUGS!

Marigold-41

just wow. take a look at these stunning rugs. i’ve been doing a little looking around online for decor ideas for my neglected back patio and stumbled upon these from armadillo co. it’s just a small space, but since i just signed another year lease i figured it was time to spruce it up finally. i actually just bought this one from west elm to try out there, but i can dream about these, right?

LOOKING FOR A NEW COUCH

10 cool couches | designlovefest

i’ve always been a fan of a good statement couch. a bold color, a funky texture or shape. i recovered my mid-century brown tweed couch with a bright teal fabric a few years ago. eventually, my cat turned the bottom of it into her personal scratch post and it’s looking pretty sad these days. aaaand it’s generally just not very comfortable for movie watching. it’s good looking, but i think i’m ready to invest in something a little more lounge-worthy. i’ve been searching around for inspiration…
