Every home reaches a point where it starts to show it’s age. Well, our house is at that point. Our palace is almost twenty years old, and boy is it time to give it a little botox to keep it looking fresh and new. A few months ago, we upgraded our guest bathroom sink, mirror and lighting. The space now needs those final finishing touches to bring it to life! Even if you do not makeover your space you can transform it in minutes by implementing a few simple upgrades such as new hardware and accessories.


You don’t need to call in a contractor and spend a lot of money upgrading your bathroom. There are simple fixes that can transform a bathroom space into a beautiful oasis and bring it right into 2019, such as your hardware.

One thing that was dated in my bathroom was our door handle. It screamed early 1990! I wanted something to coordinate with the upgrades we completed a few months back in our bathroom. Clean and modern was the look I was going for, and I found it with this beautiful chrome door handle. Something about chrome just says “new and fresh”. I immediately fell in love and now it feels like you are walking into a luxury hotel every time you open the door!

A 10 minute project has removed years from this one area in our bathroom. I also wanted to add a door hanger for guest to hang their robe or clothing. Because this is a smaller bathroom, I needed to use my vertical space to keep the bathroom from feeling cluttered.


Adding the special touches is always the fun part, especially in my guest bathroom. It gives me the opportunity to make our guest feel as if they are at their own personal spa. Every spa needs a plush robe, and this was the perfect addition to my new hook.

I love an all white bathroom, but something about mine was saying it needed a pop of color. Lately, I have been loving implementing the color green in my white and grey color scheme. I found this beautiful artwork called “Watercolor Leaf” that provided the perfect “pop” needed in my stark bathroom.

A great way to bring color into your space is with plants. I love how this vase coordinates with my artwork and overall theme for the bathroom.

When I am refreshing a space in my home, I always love to think about my senses and incorporate something into the space that will bring pleasure to not only my sight but to my senses of touch and smell. This candle warmer was the perfect addition to my bathroom to bring a beautiful scent to the space, along with a soft bathmat to enhance the experience of touch in the space. Not only is it the perfect grey, it is the perfect size for my bathroom counter.

It only took a few minutes of my time to bring my bathroom to life! Such little effort to bring value to our home.

As we are getting closer to Christmas, the pressure of selecting the perfect gift gets heavy. As a professional organizer, I love sharing ways to give amazing gifts that bring order to your life. We all get our fair share of perfume, clothes and the latest tech item but by the Christmas, we have forgotten everything we received for Christmas. I recently created a home maintenance center in our garage. This is a place where the entire family can easily get to tools needed to maintain the home on a daily basis. This means that instead of hiring a professional to install Dino composite decking, one of us should most likely be able to do it! Whether hanging a picture or tightening a loose screw by having a well-organized home maintenance center helps you knock out these tasks with ease and stress-free because all your tools are right at your fingertips. While we are talking about tools, if you are looking for a new cordless drill, then take a look at this guide from Coolest Gadgets to see a range of the latest products. This would be the perfect sidekick for any upcoming home improvement projects you have planned. If you are planning large-scale renovations then it might be worth using this loan calculator to help you finance the project.

Financing any project can be difficult and you will want to make sure that you are financially stable to ensure you can afford to support yourself throughout the project. Home improvements and projects such as fixing garage doors can be complex, you can click here if you want to check out some garage door repairments, having great garage doors to protect your car and belongings is essential to building any comfortable home.

In my latest video, I share with you how I created a home maintenance center in our garage in no time. You all know how I am a fan of coordinating just about everything. Well, tools are no different. Lowe’s ® has a variety of brands such as CRAFTSMAN ® , Bosch, DeWalt ®, Kobalt™ and more great prices which makes it simple to coordinate all of your tool essentials to look seamless in your home.

The essential CRAFTSMAN ® tools that I used to create my home maintenance center are:

To bring beautiful order to all my new tools, I found this affordable and very streamline metal pegboard as I was headed to check out. I got so excited because I knew that this was the final piece to bring my home maintenance center to life. My husband Mike and I had so much fun unboxing our tools and organizing them in a way that made it easy for us to access our tools. I think what I love more about this center is the fun that Mike and I had spending time together unboxing the tools and arranging our center. Lowe’s ® has some fantastic deals currently so take advantage of this one-stop shop opportunity this Christmas season. Don’t forget to share your home management center with me on Instagram and Facebook. I am excited to see what you and your family create this Christmas! -Nikki

I go through phases with my handbags.  One month I am infatuated with teal and the next it may be gray.  One thing that I am consistent with is my love for the classic black handbag and accessories.  You can pair a black handbag with any color or print combination and it will look fabulous. You can dress it up or dress it down.  It is a very reliable color when it comes to my style.

I am also a huge fan of my black Filofax.  It never lets me down.  I have been carrying to for several months and I am still happy with it.  I think I may be carrying it well into Spring.   I recently shared a video giving you a tour of this planner on my YouTube channel.

Anyone else like keeping your planner simple and classic?  Many of us love to fill our planners with fun stickers and colorful tabs, tags and more!  I do love using stickers in my planner as long as they keep with the clean, classic look that I love.  It can be difficult finding companies that sell simple planning products.  This is why I was so excited when I learned of Sessa Vee.  They sell a beautiful line of planner products that just makes my heart go pitter patter.

I recently ordered some things from Sessa Vee and in the video below I share with you what I purchased.  I hope you will enjoy!











Finally!  The time has come for me to share my tips on how to organize and maintain your closet.  I have received so many request to give a tour of my master closet.  I am happy to finally be able to share this with you.

It is so important to have a closet that is organized and functions well.  This will save you so much time and stress when trying to get ready in the morning.  My goal with my closet was to make it feel like my own personal boutique.  Each morning when I go into my closet I feel like it is a boutique created especially for me.





In this video I give you a tour of my master closet along with sharing tips on how to organize and maintain your closet.  I hope you find these tips helpful!  I hope you enjoy my YouTube channel At Home With Nikki.





In my latest video I share with you how I used the 5 senses of touch, smell, taste, sound and sight to bring the Fall spirit to my home. I shared how I incorporated the senses of smell through updating my cleaning caddy for the Fall. One of the key elements in updating my cleaning caddy was using Mrs. Meyers limited edition Fall inspired cleaning products. Before cleaning your home it’s important to tidy and declutter, and you could try self storage to help with this.

Many of you know that I use the Grove Collaborative as my shopping source for all my home cleaning products and supplies. I have been utilizing their service for over a year now and I have been extremely happy and impressed with their service. Basically, each month they send me all of the cleaning products that I need to keep my home stocked with the proper cleaning necessities. I love the fact that I don’t have to go out and purchase these items and the process is so simple and customizable.

So this month the Grove Collaborative sent me the new Mrs. Meyers Fall edition scents to try out. All I can say is my nose spoke the words Yummy! These scents are amazing and really gives you the warmth of Fall.



One of the two Mrs. Meyers Fall limited edition products that they sent me was the Multi-Surface everyday cleaner in the Mum scent. If you have followed me for some time you know that their multi-surface cleaner gets highly used around my home. I use it on just about everything!


I was also sent the dish soap and hand soap in the Apple Cider scent. Again, these scents were amazing! The Mrs. Meyers dish and hand soap are a staple in my home. To be able to switch up the scents from my traditional basil scented soaps is refreshing for the new season. While I enjoy using these hand soaps in the home, when I’m out and about, I prefer to use something like a bottle of Hand Sanitizer Canada to keep myself germ-free after coming into contact with potentially dirty surfaces.



I often get asked where I get my cleaning sponges. These cleaning sponges are also a staple item that is kept in my cleaning caddy. I love that they are natural and made from renewable plant materials. Of course they come to me straight from the Grove Collaborative.


For years I have used simple toothbrushes to clean those hard to reach spaces in my home. I keep them categorized by their uses due to some require water and some do not. In the video above I share with you how I use these toothbrushes. I keep a set in my downstairs cleaning caddy and also a set in my upstairs cleaning caddy. They are truly the secret weapon of my cleaning caddy.

I am really excited and happy to have my cleaning caddy refreshed for the Fall season. It gives me that extra motivation needed to clean my home. I highly recommend that you check out the Grove Collaborative and give their service a try. As I stated in the beginning of this post, I am a very happy customer and have been with them for some time now. They are also a company that gives back. They are the sponsors of this blog post and informed me that they will be selecting 10 of my viewers/readers that sign up for their service and sending $100.00 per person (10) to the Red Cross for the Hurracain Matthew relief in those viewers/readers names. They will email the 10 people to inform them they were selected.
