6 ways to create a stylish, luxurious small powder room bathroom

Sometimes we just need a change. A change of scenery, a change of fashion and or a slight change in the decor of our homes.

But we do not always have the time, means or methods available for a redecorating project as seen in the magazines and DIY shows on the television. Here are some small budget, but suggestions for big improvement, for a comfortable yet inspiring small bathroom in your home or apartment.

1. Get creative with lighting and color. Natural lighting is not always available in a small bathroom but that does not mean that you should be deprived of the natural color of light. Pay attention to the color spectrum of the light bulbs you are using in your small bathroom to recreate the most natural light.Lighting Ideas. A small luxurious touch is to put a small chandelier or pendant over the bathroom. This will make taking a bath feel luxurious and stylish. Who does not love to bath under a chandelier?Dimmer switches are easy to install and can help you create mood.

2. Refreshing your walls with paint your walls, color suggestions. Use light colored paints that are easy to match linens and accessories with. Beiges, blues and greys are popular this year and easy to accessorize with.
Color and LIghting for your bathroom

3. Maximize the space that you have available in your small bath by adding functional shelving, removing unnecessary furniture and replacing oversized fixtures with more appropriate smaller versions. (this latter should be discussed with the landlord if you are renting the space)

4. Clear away clutter. Small bathrooms need only paint color, pretty mirror and a small picture or two to provide a functional and relaxing space. Throw away all old toiletries, only keep what you use and consolidate half bottles of shampoo with similar products. Box appliances that you use and place them under the sink where they are accessible but not visible. And lastly, pick up your towels and used clothing.

5. For that extra homey, crisp and polished ambiance, invest in fine cotton or cotton/linen blend embroidered bathroom accessories. They are luxurious to the touch, easily interchangeable for personal style and satisfy any individual indulgence. Select from many of Jacaranda Livings embroidered guest hand towels in white waffle weave or one of our natural or white linens. Also perfect for that small bathroom is an embroidered tissue box >covers. Pick a theme of embroidery and match your towels with your tissue box.

6. Fresh Flowers. Add fresh flowers to your small powder room in a small vase or mason jar. Pick from your own garden or pickup a small bouqet at a local farmers market. A great final detail and final touch to your bathroom project!

How to Keep Warm during the Polar Vortex

After a week long trip to Smugglers Notch in Vermont where the temperatures were as low as -35 on the ski mountain, I have learned a few tips on how to keep warm during this winter polar vortex. This was our second year enduring these freezing cold temperatures at Smuggs but this year we came prepared and we conquered and thought we’d bring our tips home for you!

Remember it is a polar vortex winter, so don’t go outside dressed for a New England Winter. Wear boots, a hat, warm mittens and even a face warmer every time you go outside. Even if you are just running to the store, dressing warm and keeping all of your body warm will help you to remember why you love New England Winter. I guarantee this will leave you feeling less cold and more enthusiastic about going out in the cold.

1. Wear fashionable, comfortable boots.

Some great boots I found are rubber boots, but I glammed them up with some long socks and they rocked the cold weather. They are by Isle Jacobsen and are rubber boots that are not only stylish but warm.  I found mine at www.kingswharfe.com in Kennebunkport, Maine, they ship no charge and they are a small local boutique that I’m sure this time of winter would appreciate the business (1-207-967-1208).

Isle Jacobsen Boots can be found and ordered locally

2. Wear a hat

Hats are cute now, so come on, buy yourself something warm but stylish. Hit your locally owned ski shop for a cool selection of hats. Here are some hats we love with links where to buy them.

3. Wear a large scarf

Wearing a large eternity scarf doubled up will keep your neck and face warm when you go outside. You can pull it up over your face and head when you go out and pull it back down when you enter inside. One line we love and have found to be not only adorable but very useful in cold weather. Wooden Ships by Paola Buendía. The website shows all the wonderful scarves but you have to find a store local to you to purchase. You won’t be disappointed when you find and buy one.

5. Wear Long Bottom Covering Long Sleeve Tee’s or Tops
Wearing a top that covers your bottom will help keep that bottom warm when you have to sit on cold car seats, or any cold outdoor seating. Lucky and Free People Brands are both bohemian style and offer many longer flowing options.

5. Wear warm comfy Leggings
The best brand of leggings we have found are Lysse Leggings. They are thicker than most leggings and also are “high rise, tummy control”, not only keeping your tummy in, but keeping it warmer. These come in many sizes, selections and styles, they are warm, comfy and fit perfectly into long boots.

6. Wear Long Socks

There are lots of options for socks. You can go sporty with the Under Armour Momentum Ski and Sport socks or find more Under Armour all weather socks here http://www.levelninesports.com/.

You can go trendy with a dressier, longer wool sock under your boots that will keep your legs and your feet warm such as these long cuffable socks from sockdreams that come in a variety of colors.

7. Layer Up
Wear layers…Under your long sleeve tunic wear a warm tank top or velvet top to keep your core warm. Over that layer a light top like we recommended under point #5. Cover that with a buttoned up sweater, cape like sweater or even a fancier fleece.

8. Don’t forget your gloves
Texting gloves are best or even fingerless gloves if you find gloves really annoying.

Fine Linen Manufacturer, Jacaranda Living, Exhibits Its Popular Line of Sleepwear at the Curve NY Show for the First Time

With a decade of experience in fine embroidered bed and bath linens, Jacaranda Living is preparing to showcase its highly successful line of sleepwear at the Curve Lingerie Show in New York City.


Massachusetts-based linen manufacturer, Jacaranda Living, will be exhibiting at the Curve Lingerie Show for the first time this year. The company will be showcasing its popular line of sleepwear during the event which will be held in New York City February 23rd, 24th, and 25th.

Owner Cathy Deale says the massive success of the cotton nightgown line contributed to her decision to attend this year’s show. “Our cotton sleepwear category has grown to be a major part of our business and we keep expanding it so we thought we would try exhibiting at a show aimed at lingerie stores,” says Deale.

Deale designed the line to include both cotton pajamas and nightgowns, with two new short styles for spring and summer which appeal to younger customers. The styles come in all-white with a little lace, pintucks, or colored embroidery. She says the soft feel of the cotton is its biggest selling feature. “The styles are not fussy. They have a little detailing and the cotton gets softer and softer with washing so it becomes a favorite,” says Deale.

Jacaranda Living short Cotton Nightie

Jacaranda Living recently released its new 2014 catalog of fine linens. It includes sleeveless, short sleeve, three-quarter sleeve and long sleeve nightgowns, as well as two new options for pajamas which feature embroidery at each ankle or ruffles at the hem. It also offers waffle bathrobes and a white short set with blue piping.

About Jacaranda Living: Jacaranda Living is a wholesaler and retailer of fine embroidered waffle linens for home and spa, as well as bedding, cotton sleepwear, and baby pillows. The company was founded in 2004 and is based in Wellesley, Massachusetts. To find out what Jacaranda Living can do for you, visit JacarandaLiving.com

How to Order Embroidery Designs from our Website

On our website we carry over 100 embroidery designs that are available on most products.

Embroidered products include waffle guest towels, linen guest towels, shower curtains, tissue box covers, bed linens, boudoir and throw pillows and baby linens and items.

Because we have so many products with so many designs, we don’t display every item in every design, instead we let you choose the product first and pick the design you want from there. So on many products you will have to specify which embroidery design you would like.

We know this can be somewhat confusing so we put together this blog post to help you succeed in ordering the embroidery designs of your choice.

How do I order a specific embroidery design on your website?

Go to the product you would like to order, tissue boxes, waffle towels or linen towels. At the bottom of each product are the embroidery design category options, choose HOLIDAY.

"Joy" - Ladies White Cotton and Lace Nightgown from Jacaranda LivingFeatured this month on Los Angeles designer Jenni Kayne’s blog. Apparently she loves our white nightgowns and shared it with her readers on her Rip Plus Tan Blog.

FROM THE BLOG.

I’ve always loved and slept in white nightgowns.  There is something feminine, vintage and clean about a beautiful white nightgown that I love.  Whenever I see one, I buy it because they are few and far between.  Now that Ripley has outgrown all her footed pajamas, I have traded them in for adorable nightgowns and don’t plan on looking back.  I wanted to share a couple of my favorites with you.

Jacaranda Living

I recently discovered Jacaranda Living and am obsessed!  They have beautiful nightgowns for kids and adults.  I love Joy for adults and there are too many to choose from for the little ladies.

My favorite one I ordered for Ripley is the Kate, which is all white with lace.  I also love Caroline, Gracie and Ali, which are sweet white nightgowns with little floral embroidery details. XXJKE

NYNow Gift Show Summer 2013 with Cathy Deale

Hello Customers and Friends,

It was a pleasure to see so many returning and new customers at the NY Now Gift Show last week. Thanks for finding  us in our new upstairs booth location.

Cathy Deale of Jacaranda Living

  • For those of you who didn’t attend (and for those who did too) I thought you’d like to hear our take on it in a few brief points.
  • Aisles were busy, attendance appeared to be strong. Mixed reactions from vendors and buyers on the new booth locations – interspersing Textiles with Home Furnishings? It might take some getting used to.
  • Growth in demand for ladies and children’s cotton sleepwear – all 4 of our new designs were winners.
  • Trend to monochromatic tones shown in many booths. Our new cream Holiday Wreath on a Natural Linen was a knockout!
  • Buyers still enjoy the benefits of touching and feeling – whether at a trade show or in a retail store.
  • The January 2014 NY Now show will be interesting. Superbowl meets Gift Buying. Make your plans now
