This pretty Thanksgiving centerpiece look is easy to attain. Start the centerpiece with a green garland of eucalyptus leaves (some leaves are long and narrow, some are smaller and rounder). Then, cut mums of different colors from their stems. Using craft wire, string the mums together to create a garland. Follow a color gradation for a contemporary look.

Designer Dane Austin says “A playful powder room gives your guests something to talk about. What a fun surprise to find a little drama behind the door. Powder rooms are temporary use spaces and are quite separate from the rest of the home. Whether you implement a bold lacquered trim detail, mirror the walls, add faux finishes, or apply wallcoverings, dressing the walls in your powder room is an easy way to go custom and turn it into a fabulous little jewel box.” Vintage mirror via #chairish
