Gorgeous Bathrooms That You Might be Like

Celebrities grab our attention because of their extravagant clothes, complicated relationships and, most notably, their stunning homes. The size of their houses and celebrity lifestyles they live are pretty remarkable.

Although most of us will never experience this lavish way of life, it’s fun to see where our favorite celebs spend their time and learn about their taste in interior design. Join me as I take you inside the bathrooms of five of the most admired celebrities of our time.

1. Sarah Jessica Parker

We all know her as the star of Sex and the City and love her for it. Sarah Jessica Parker is no stranger to the camera and celebrity scene. According to Variety, the actress and husband Matthew Broderick recently purchased two side-by-side townhouses on a prime, tree-lined block in the heart of New York City’s wildly pricey West Village, for $35 million.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s two Manhattan townhouses both feature classic brick façades and bathrooms any woman would want to own. One of their bathrooms features a large white tub with nearby floating wood shelves and a newly installed shower with glass doors.

2. Adele

Her voice is incredible and her home is gorgeous. The next celebrity palace we’ll be entering belongs to no other than the legendary, Adele. The singer shattered sales records when she released her third album, 25, so it’s not surprising she recently made a home upgrade. Adele reportedly used some of that cash to scoop up this Beverly Hills spectacle for $9.5 million.

The 6,600sf home is in one of the city’s most exclusive gated communities, Hidden Valley, and is equipped with four bedrooms, six bathrooms and two formal living rooms. The backyard provides a private space to entertain neighbors (Jennifer Lawrence and Sofia Vergara), complete with a hedge-lined pool.

Adele’s cottage-style bathroom is just as fabulous as her vocals. The master bedroom has two large closets and a bright and beautiful bath. Her sanctuary has gray beadboard walls, multi-light windows, a skylight, hardwood floors, which on average cost between $250 and $7,000 to install, a large bath and shower covered in white subway tile. All I can say is, gorgeous!

Great Ideas For Your Home

For a parent-to-be, there is much excitement surrounding the arrival of your little one. So much preparation surrounds this day where your baby will come home and your new life as a family will begin together.

If you’re anticipating the arrival of a baby boy, you may be eager to start decorating his nursery. Picking out the theme and color scheme of your son’s room is an exciting time, but can often be overwhelming. Here are a few ideas to help you get started planning the perfect nursery for your baby boy.

As fun as it is to choose a theme and paint, you must consider safety first. Here are some points to consider when it comes to nursery safety.

 

The Crib

Many times, the focal point of a nursery is the crib. Cribs come in many variations and styles, so it’s important to look at the options that are up to government standards. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says that slats in the crib should be no more than 2 3/8” apart.  The crib frame should have no knobs or hooks attached. They also say that cribs older than 10 years should not be used, as they may not meet today’s standards.

 

The Changing Table

You may keep supplies near the changing table, but you’ll want to keep any personal care products out of reach for your baby. Also, be sure to never leave your baby unattended on the changing table, as the guard rail is not enough to prevent accidents from happening.

 

Rid The Room Of Potential Hazards

You may not think about it at first, but the room itself may pose some hazards for the baby as he grows older. The average cost to install childproofing devices is $439 depending on what you choose to install. Cover all outlets that are unused. The best covers are ones that cover the entire outlet. Keep cribs, changing tables and playpens away from windows, where your child may be tempted to play with the window cord.
