Snapdragon has a lot of products that will give your home a finishing touch and really wrap it up with love!

Snapdragon Home Décor was founded by Suzanne Lillie, a small town gal from Kingston, Massachusetts with a lot of style! Suzanne used to be a religious mail order shopper but transitioned early on to online shopping and loves it! Her passion for décor, design, and online shopping all led to start her own online home décor boutique.

Suzanne’s overall style is super comfy, and homey which translates to a lot of the products she features in her shop. This lovely living room featured in Architectural Digest really shows off the kind of style Snapdragon portrays. Just an overall relaxed, timeless look that’s perfect for a family environment.

Make your own bathroom at home feel like a mini spa with these easy ideas that can work with even the tiniest bathrooms! It’s time for you to relax and kick-back for some ME time after a long day at work…

Place Towels on a Rack

A shelving unit that holds clean, rolled or folded up towels looks and feels like you are at a real spa! You can also place some bath soaps and lotions there for easy use and access. If you can’t come across a towel-shelving unit, a glass bookcase can also be used instead!

Update Your Hardware

Brass hardware is really trending this year, and updating your existing bathroom hardware is an easy update that takes minutes. Remove your faucets, shower head, and vanity knobs and replace them with brushed bronze for a sleek look. Also instead of using round knobs for your vanity, use long pull handles which tend to look more modern and expensive. This quick update works wonders and can make an old, outdated vanity look new again!

Monogram Your Towels

Whether you want to put your initials or embroider your towels with “His”, “Her’s” or even “Guest”, this special touch will add some glam and instant panache to your bathroom. This designer even placed them on a wooden serving tray for a neat, put-together look. If you have guests over, they will surely be impressed!

Set Aside a Makeup Corner

If you have the luxury of having enough countertop space in your bathroom, remove one section of your draws for a makeup vanity section. This way you can tuck in a small seat where you can sit down and get all dolled up!

Add Long Curtains Around Your Bathtub

Instead of using cheap shower curtains, install a pair of two-panelled, super long curtains that puddle on the floor. If you have your eyes set on a fabric that isn’t meant to get wet, just make sure to line the inside of the curtains with water-proof fabric. I find that outdoor fabrics work best for bathroom use since they are extra durable.

Spring Cleaning – 3 Easy Home Office Organization Tips that will Change Your Life!


When it comes to working from home, from experience I know that it can be really hard at times to stay concentrated and to block out all distractions. Most of the time the top reason is that my desk is swimming in papers and clutter, making it impossible to stay on track! If this sounds like you with a messy office space and your electronic devices are tangled up in their own cords, it’s time to tackle this monster!

One of the first things to de-cluttering your messy space is to learn how to remove the clutter and organize all the things in your home office. This endeavor might be hard at first (especially if you have so much trash!) but it will definitely pay off in the end and even change your life! Here are 3 easy but super effective steps to spring-clean your precious office at home:

1. Invest in Storage Space

This may cost a little bit of money, but buying cabinets or racks for keeping your papers is a must in every home office. Aside from providing a healthy work surrounding, organizing your files is also beneficial if you want to be more productive. If you already know where you keep your documents, you won’t have to waste hours in searching for them. Some of the things that you should get are trash bin, filing cabinet, and file rack. Label each container so you won’t get too confused.

2. Organize the Files on Your computer

For starters, you can arrange the files in your desktop or notebook computerfirst. You spend most of your time staring at your screen, so it would really help if you could organize your files. Place your documents in different folders. Make sure that you separate your personal files from your client’s files. If you there are some outdated documents, you can delete or transfer them to a hard drive. Create back-ups of important files in USB sticks and cloud storage systems.


3. Learn to Let Useless Things Go

Sometimes, people get too sentimental with their material objects. Even a simple tool like a used pen is hard to throw away. But if you really want to have a clutter-free office space, you have to let some of your tools go, especially those that are already useless. This includes pens that do not work, outdated newspapers, old phones, and any other broken equipment that you have. Just remember, a tidy room is a tidy mind!

Retro-inspired interiors are making a big comeback this year, which means get ready for color blocking and mixing matching prints. When decorating, your main goal should be to make your entire space feel as though you have traveled back-in-time into a different era. Think about the kitchy 50’s, the mod 60’s or the bohemian 70’s and you’ll sure get a rush of inspiration and not to mention a color/pattern overload!

When it comes to choosing furniture to match your retro theme look for pieces that have an abstract feel to them. Broad, elongated sofas in vivid hues may look as if they are fighting for the limelight, but it’s all part of the style!

Introduce lots of retro colors into your home such as avocado green, which is one of the most popular color choices in this style. Mustard, black, white, red, and even hot pinks are also popular colors that can be combined or used alone as an ceiling to floor color.
