Keep Your Glam Bathroom From Feeling Too Fancy With This Casual Touch

This bathroom by Classy Clutter is almost too good to be true. What exactly makes it so striking? Well, it balances elegance and playfulness in a calm, inviting setting. It all starts with a white-and-gold color palette that's used throughout the room — and most prominently in the matching round mirrors and sconces above the double vanity — which creates an almost formal setting for tidying up. Thankfully, pops of pink and blue keep the luxe finishes from feeling too stuffy, and a faux-fur stool above the warm blue rug only adds to that playful spirit. And speaking of that rug, it really is the defining piece that keeps this room down to earth. While that scalloped tile wall feature sure is gorgeous, its glam appearance is only heightened by the surrounding gold accents. The rug helps to soften those glam finishes, making for a room that's upscale, but comfortable.

Turns out, the same rug can freshen up your own space for a surprisingly affordable price.
