Of all the lessons we've learned over the last year, taking time to appreciate life's simple pleasures tops the list. From a beauty standpoint, that can look like running a warm bath or spending a few extra minutes giving ourselves a soothing facial massage when applying our nighttime moisturizer. Another way is by taking the time to connect to how we arrange and display our beauty products. I know this might sound a bit extra, but stick with me here.
Now, this isn't a new concept by any means. Remember how popular the beauty shelfie was and still is to this day? It emerged years ago as a way to turn our boring medicine cabinets into sanctums of beauty. But why should our products be relegated to our medicine cabinets? Every year, product packaging gets more sustainable, more functional, and, best of all, more beautiful, so why not give those gorgeous products more prominent spots in our home décor?
We're down. Enter, beautyscaping. From placing a color-coordinated blush or lipstick near a beloved piece of art to crafting cozy bath setups and incorporating pretty candles and vessels filled with luxe creams into tabletop designs, beautyscaping frees our products from the shelf and gives them starring roles in our everyday lives. Ahead, check out eight beautiful examples of the artistic ingenuity of beautyscaping.
Style Notes: If you're into natural elements like shells and the textures that evoke an elevated, refined take on coastal style, look for porcelain and glass pieces like a ribbed lamp and pair them with gold accents and beauty products in glass containers to create a beautiful and intentional-looking collection of tabletop accessories.
Style Notes: True beauty enthusiasts know that fitting all your products into a single medicine cabinet simply isn't possible. Instead, build your vanity area into a full shrine to your beauty routine and complete it with an oversize mirror and organizational elements like shelves and acrylic cases to display your entire collection.
Style Notes: There's nothing quite like a soothing bath at the end of a long day, and settling into a tub while surrounded by organic materials, pared-down accessories, and clean details is a recipe for deep relaxation.
Style Notes: If your home décor aesthetic centers around bold color and intermingling textures and finishes, cap off the look with a dish full of your favorite beaded hair clips or a brightly hued candle in an unexpected shape.
Style Notes: Even if you don't want your entire home to be filled with the chintz textiles and over-the-top ruffles categorized among the markers of the grandmillennial décor style, you can still dedicate a corner to the grandma within by organizing your prettiest bottles of perfume in a preciously detailed tray alongside an ornate mirror.
Style Notes: It's all about the ultra-luxe essentials here. Pack your space with a Hollywood-style mirror situation, the plushest white linens, and black accents that make everything feel that much cooler.
Style Notes: With a pretty bath setup like this, any night in can feel like a romantic date night. This look hinges on an assortment of candles, but don't forget to stock the bath with your favorite bubbles and a neutral rack to hold a glass of wine.
