The start of a new season brings us the opportunity to transform our homes. Autumn is a refreshing time of year as temps begin to cool after summer's heat. Here are some budget-friendly decorative items for your bathroom.

Wine country

  • Dot swirl bath collection (Target, $13-$40)
  • Ogee chain bath mat (West Elm, $29)

Classic retro

Classic Retro

White is a timeless color that works well in any season. If you would like to capture a retro feel in your bathroom, keep things simple with a monochromatic palette of white and creamy neutrals. Feel free to add black.

I also don't think he has told others the specific reasons. All we can go on is the list of teams he has instructed his agent he would sign an extension with doesn't include the Bulls. And then in conversations I've had with people who know Dwight well there are educated guesses why: Wants the bright lights and marketing opportunities of New York (near New Jersey) and Los Angeles. Doesn't want to play second fiddle to Derrick Rose. Doesn't like the cold. I know, I know: New Jersey gets cold. The Lakers have Kobe Bryant and the Nets have Deron Williams. But Rose is going to be here far longer than Kobe will be playing for the Lakers. And Deron Williams is more an All-Star complimentary player as opposed to a dominant All-Star like Rose. Again, these are educated guesses. And I don't get it either. Rose likes to defer by nature. And he'd throw lob pass after lob pass to Howard. But it's not going to happen. ????`????????? ????å????????å?
