Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm glad I'm in good company here! Yeah, I don't get the pants comment, and I get that it's highly unlikely a man will come up to you and say "I LOVEEEE your pants!" the way I do when I see another lady with an amazing outfit or a piece of clothing. But if you're uncomfortable complimenting someone outright in the first place, don't bother!!

 

The "dear" thing doesn't quite bother me as much... but I also don't get called "dear" very often! I think I send off a very "mean" vibe (gotta be tough in this industry as a woman!) that no man thinks I'm a dear to them LOL

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

another day, another automated email from Sephora telling me to hurry up and buy that out-of-stock item I keep checking on.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When you have this perfect image in your head of what an item looks like online and it arrives and looks exactly as shown online but it's just not right anyway.  I tried to get the whole room in there.  The stool looks out of place doesn't it?  Maybe remove the side table?  I need a home decorator!I tried to get the whole room in there. The stool looks out of place doesn't it?

@heartsmyface  If only I could have a mirror that large Smiley Happy

 

I think that the side table is fine, it looks very handy right where it is.

RE: Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes I think removing the side table will help tremendously.. even though it is a cute idea/touch otherwise.. it just doesn't fit with the space once the stool is there

Re: RE: Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@DevlinSky I agree.  It's too much.

Oh my goodness your Pikachu looks so cute Smiley Very Happy

I like the color of the blue chair but my biggest worry with that fabric would be that I would drop something on it an completely ruin it Smiley Sad Looks super comfy though! Maybe incorporate some other pieces that have the same color? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface what color is your room exactly? Is it a very pale pink? A beige? It's a little hard to read. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@jozkid It's generic mass produced bone paint.  We haven't done anything to the walls.  Perhaps I should paint the room a white-teal....?  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface I worked a little photoshop magic. Smiley Happy

 

Just added some more of that color up a little so it bounces around and balances the room a bitJust added some more of that color up a little so it bounces around and balances the room a bit

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I loooove this!!! Now I'm wondering if I should do pops of teal as my added color for my bedroom which is where my vanity will do once it's refinished. I'm having major chair envy.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 Okay.  I'm going to try and make the stool work.  It's probably going to be cheaper to accessorize than to find a new stool.  Lol, I'm probably not going to do anything I say I will at this point.  We'll see what I find out in the furniture district.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hmmmmmm....that could work too...okay I need to think on this some and perhaps visit Home Sense for inspiration. I think the chair is losing my love and it needs to go but I'm taking all your ideas and starting fresh. 

 

Thank you everyone for your inputSmiley Happy. I super appreciate that you ladies are here to helpSmiley Happy 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes! I love this @jozkid ! @heartsmyface I think that stool looks great...so glamourous and goes with the vanity! I think you just need some other similar pops of colour on the wall like joz's photoshopped picture, and it'll bring it all together.

 

I do this throughout my own house too Smiley Happy I have this red couch that went well with our old place but the new house is a bit more "modern" and doesn't quite fit with the whole vibe of the house. So we ended up putting pops of red all over the house (a black and white painting with a red tree and a red and white table runner in the dining room, red poufs in the living room, and red cookware that I leave out on the stove Smiley Very Happy)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyfaceI love it!  Such great space. You have nice wall space where you can add a piece of art or you could use silk flowers and change them throughout the different seasons so it's always a fresh new look.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Omg that mirror is gorgeous!  It doesn't fit 'me' but boy is that ever nice to look at!   @AMK721

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface A couple of things I notice. First, I really like the stool. Maybe you can use it in another room?

 

The mirror is really super big and high. Great for makeup, but it also raises the eyein the room. Most of the items in the room are mid level and lower which makes the mirror seem even more overwhelming and leaves a sort of gap between the very high mirror and the lower activity. The color of the stool is one that stands out (which is fine) but it's very squatty so the proportions seem a bit off 

 

Maybe add a taller chair (with a back?). Maybe add some more interest on the walls to fill in the visual gap between high and low? Items in the same teal to bounce that color up on the walls (if you keep the stool there). Just some ideas. Not a decorator but I am an illustrator/designer. Kind of looking at your room as a drawing Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thank you so much!  Yeah I think the stool needs to be banished to my walk in closet.  I'm realizing it's something that I've always loved from afar but that doesn't fit my personal asthetic if that makes sense.  A black and silver chair would be way more "me".Smiley Happy@jozkid

 

I definitely need to look at something for the walls. I've never paid much attention to wall art before but it's looking necessary to pull things together.  Lol, if I look at this from a face-of-makeup perspective it makes more senseSmiley Embarassed

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface  I think you feel like it's out of place because you have nothing else in that color in that room. Just like many have said below. You just need repetition so it fits in better you know.  Of course black or white would fit in now but if you want pops of color like the stool you'll need to find some decor and maybe even paint in that color family. That will make the space more harmonious. Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface Your beauty space is gorgeous!!! I found a few things you might be interested in.... the first two are from Pottery Barn. Maybe you could customize the colour when ordering.  tavi-mongolian-faux-fur-stool-j.jpgkirkham-tufted-leather-x-base-stool-j.jpgimages-1.jpegimages.jpegimages-2.jpeg

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh I really like the black chair!!!!   The fur is really appealing but looks impossible to clean my inevitable messes. @blushnglow Thank you!
