It’s that time of year again. Time to start thinking about going back to school. We still have plenty of summer left, but now is a great time to get a head start on the school year so you can get back to enjoying the summer.

While I’ve been out of school for some time now I can still recall all my best practices for getting ready for the new school year in style.

Here are a few things you should do to make sure you are back to school ready.

Finish Your Summer Reading

Nothing sucks more than having to speed read through all your summer reading. So why take a little time to finish up now. Audiobooks are a great way to get through your summer reading without having to worry about sitting down to read.

I love audiobooks because it lets me multitask. You can read while exercising, taking a walk, or getting some cleaning done around the house. Get your reading done now while you still can.

Stock up on School Supplies

Have you already received your back to school supplies list? Get your supplies early. The longer you wait, the more likely most stores are to run out of all the best notebooks, pens and other items.

Everyone is getting their supplies so do not wait until its too late! Get yours sooner rather than later.

Get Your Back To School Shopping Done Early

Going shopping for new clothes for school has always been my favorite part of starting the new school year. And the way I see it, it’s a great time of year to get new clothes in general!

I especially love all the new styles by the Mudd brand. My whole outfit is from their collection at Kohl’s. It is comfy, cute, and so chic. They have a number of jeans, shirts, and dresses.

Mudd is known for their feminine, yet casual fashion and a free-spirited lifestyle. Why not feel confident this school year with back-to-school closet must-haves in the Junior’s Department, from stylish denim and trendy tops to casual lounge pieces you can either dress up or lounge around in comfortably!

Mudd was established in 1995 with the launch of the flare jean and has since become a juniors’ denim destination synonymous with feminine yet casual fashion and a free-spirited lifestyle. Today, the Mudd brand represents the generation of independent girls who stand up, stand out and make their dreams a reality. They lead by action and know they can impact the future.

I don’t know about you but I am here for this brand!

Kohl’s has an amazing back to school offer happening right now. Their back to school offer runs from 8/2-8/18 and can be used on all Mudd apparel. You can receive $10 off $50 BTS purchases!

Sit Back and Relax

Once you get all of these things done, you should be able to enjoy the rest of your summer without any stress about being ready for school. Now you can get to the fun part of just enjoying the rest of the summer in peace.

Mural, Mural on the Wall
Lung-Shan Chang
Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly Inc.
Williston Park, NY


Luxury, comfort and elegance were the buzzwords associated with the planning of this Long Island, NY master bathroom, designed by Lung-Shan Chang of Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly, Inc. While a clean and classic look was desired for the 300-sq.-ft. space, the clients also wanted something that was artistic and unique.

Playing on the artistic idea, the shower wall, in itself, is a work of art, and acts as a focal point in the space. A full-wall lotus mosaic, created using custom tiles, required advance planning, meticulous attention to detail and long labor hours to get it just right. The vivid greens, oranges and yellows present a striking contrast to the all-white shower and surrounding room.

A frameless glass shower enclosure shows the tilework in its best light. In the shower, which has amenities for two people, Kohler products include Purist showerheads and WaterTile Body Sprays. A long bench with handsprays at each side add comfort and convenience for the bather. Custom waterjet cut marble tiles are laid on the shower floor and ceiling to enhance the opulence of the space.

The shower is flanked by two water closets, each sporting a Kohler Veil toilet. Directly across the room stands a Kohler Purist drop-in spa tub with Purist faucet, set in a domed wall space with windows that provide a view of the outdoors. Surrounding the tub is custom paneling designed to complement the vanities located on each side wall.

The identical custom white vanities, in addition to ample prep space and storage, feature oversized mirrors, Gliderite Clear Acrylic Handles, translucent vanity legs and upper and lower doors with leather inserts. Set in the Cambria Brittanicca quartz marble-look countertop is a Kohler undermount sink with Purist faucet.

Custom waterjet cut marble floor tiles and a crystal chandelier enhance the classic, elegant design.

Suite Story
Libby Palmieri
House of L
Solon, OH

This Ohio master suite – at over 700 square feet – had size in its favor, but the wish list of the clients was long and detailed. Items on the check list for designer Libby Palmieri of House of L included adding a second closet to create his and hers closets, and incorporating a wet bar and gas fireplace.

In order to create the second closet, square footage was stolen from the large bedroom. The added closet also provided a wall for the fireplace. Because the old closet now only had to accommodate one person, space was taken from it and reallocated to the bath, allowing for the incorporation of a wet bar and a large, luxurious shower.

The shower, designed in soft blues and whites, adds a picturesque punch to the space, showcasing Stellar 4″x8″ tiles in Cornflower Blue Gloss with 3″x6″ Victorian Mantle on the lower portion and throughout the room, and Stellar 3″x6″ tiles in Pure White on the upper wall of the shower, both from Sonoma Tilemakers. A waterfall effect was created on the bench and floor of the shower using Mist Mosaic tile from New Ravenna in Bardiglio, Carrara and Thassos marbles. To enhance the luxury shower experience, Palmieri included hand shower, body sprays and trims from California Faucets, as well as a 16″ Flush Mount Rain Machine from Jaclo and SM Series Steambath from Steamist.

A dressing furniture-style vanity along one wall mirrors the functional version placed in front of the large window, both custom pieces from C.A. Miller Custom Woodworking. Suspended, back-lit mirrors were hung in front of the window, which allowed the designer to play with the restrictive layout of the space. The vanities are topped with Minuet quartz from LG Hausys, with Kohler Verticyl sinks and Miramar 8″ widespread lavatory faucets in the window vanity. Coordinating decorative accessories are also from California Faucets’ Miramar collection, and a TOTO Eco Soiree with Washlet is tucked into a water closet.

Artistic Tile’s Honed Carrara Marble graces the floor, punctuated by a center of Lillet Waterjet tiles in Carrara and Calacatta from New Ravenna.

High-Rise Home
Colette Rodon Hornof
Chicago, IL


High style in a high rise was the objective for this project, designed by Colette Rodon Hornof of Vesta. The 900-sq.-ft. master suite makeover was designed to make the most of the space and its stunning views of the city of Chicago.

The original space consisted of two awkward his-and-hers bathrooms and closets, and the task at hand was to convert that space into a serene, spa-like bath and upscale walk-in closet. The area posed several challenges for Hornof, including incorporating a new tub and larger shower into an existing bathroom layout, and providing an open feel in the bath of a high-rise building while still allowing for privacy.

The original west side bathroom was used as the base for the new bath. A step up into the room was added to allow for the relocation of most of the plumbing needs. The new Aquia II toilet from TOTO was placed in the toilet’s original location, with a tall cabinet added to visually close it off from the rest of the space.

Using the drain and water lines from the original tub and shower allowed for a sleek double-sink design, with a Leicht Avance European white channel handle vanity. The vanity is topped with a Diresco Anticato in Pure White, with Duravit Starck III sinks and Dornbracht IMO faucets. Dornbracht IMO bath accessories are also featured throughout the space. Robern M Series medicine cabinets provide lighting and additional storage and are set against a backdrop of Artistic Tile’s Opera Glass Collection of mosaics, which are also featured on the shower wall.

By raising the floor, the new shower was able to be located at the old closet location, with a tub as a feature at the window wall. A glass enclosure separates the two areas, with the Nouveau tub from Hastings Tile & Bath and Hansgrohe Axor Citterio tub faucet placed at the window to take advantage of the stunning view. The shower features a plumbing column that includes the Dornbracht showerhead and faucet. Modern Avorio tile on the tub/shower wall finishes the look.
