I haven’t written about bathrooms in a little while and I think this is a fabulous way to revisit one of the most essential, high-traffic rooms in the home. These bathing beauties feature some of the most gorgeous bathtubs I have ever seen.
We begin and end our days, perform our ‘getting ready’ rituals and beautify ourselves all in the bathroom. In busy days time flutters by and our surroundings can blend together in the rush of mornings and the haze of bedtimes. So how do we slow down and savor our moments? Linger a bit? Pay closer attention?
One thing is for certain, with any one of these beautifully stylized bathrooms, slowing down would become a necessity right quick! You would begin to make excuses to take a bath! Gardening? Oh, my look at those dirty hands. Time for a bath! Oh, no, dirty again. I guess I’ll take a bath. It could go on like that for a while. An elegant bathroom with any one of these soaker bathtubs is a like a mini retreat. I love how designer Sara Richardson often refers to the bathroom as a jewelry box. As it tends to be a smaller space (not that you’d know that by the size of these lofty bathrooms) you can splurge on materials that offer some impact, translation: glamour.
To add a little glamour to your home without a full blown renovation, you could always update the accessories. New textiles can go a long way. Fresh flowers, fluffy white towels, a new shower curtain and pretty, glitzy, things like a new mirror or light fixtures can elevate the look of your bathroom and foster a new sense of mindfulness. And if you are able to make time for a bath, make it a luxe one! Light some candles and add some Epsom salts! Happy bathing, beauties!
