Whether it’s reveling in a long bath at the end of a stressful week, perfecting your morning makeup routine or learning how to nail that elusive no-makeup look, a well styled bathroom is a must. Even if you’re living in a small apartment, all it takes are a few upgrades to turn your bathroom into a place you love spending time. Think: pretty soaps, stylish storage and plenty of plants. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to beautify your bathroom with on-trend storage options, colorful towels and chic accessories for the ultimate at-home spa space. Scroll on to see how we’d style the bathroom for a boho-chic space, the minimalist abode and a preppy home.
HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC BATHROOM
To glam up your boho-chic bathroom, bring in pastel pinks, gilded accents and *lots* of florals. Add some texture with copper wire baskets and plenty of plants, and set the tone with a geometric piece like a mirror. Pick up a wooden tray, and keep it stocked full of spa-day essentials for those times when you just need some me time.

Then accessorize to your heart’s content with iridescent planters, lucite or glass pieces and plenty of good scents. Make sure you don’t forget to add the texture via a fluffy patterned rug, a reclaimed wood ladder and a set of tasseled towels.

HOW TO DECORATE A PREPPY BATHROOM
If you want to make your bathroom bright, colorful and preppy all over, you’ll want to stock up on all things striped, metallic and colorful. Bring on the hot pink in a bold way with a pink step stool and some fun accessories like a flamingo laundry basket. For some jewelry storage, a zebra jewelry dish will keep everything contained and won’t take up too much valuable counter space. Don’t forget to include some pink-dipped candles and a few pretty soap options.
