Thinking about a gift for a busy home-school Mom? I have the natural runner in my upstairs hallway leading into the bathroom and bedrooms.
I love it mostly because you can walk out of the bathroom with wet feet and it doesn’t ruin a natural rug! Here’s a view of my favorite natural rug in the hallway. I have a few though!
Do you enjoy the way it feels when you open a window or a door? If you love the sunlight and the breeze, do something out of the ordinary by placing a natural fiber rug in the bathroom. Natural fibers bring in elements from outdoors and invoke some peace in us when we need it most in the AM. Sometimes I use my natural rug as a backdrop for blog posts!
Anyone else have an art buying addiction? I do know that a well placed piece of art can have you sitting on the throne in a daze. Whether or not that’s good, I recommend finding something like this tree art stretched canvas to adorn one of those bare bathroom walls. This one comes is over 20 styles.
I’m secretly waiting to buy this waterfall for my bathroom. You need to have a little wall ands floor space for this one but can you imagine waking up to a spa waterfall? Or better yet, taking the midnight trip to the bathroom without having to turn on the light at all? I would probably want to cuddle up next to it and fall asleep right there. I love this spa inspired waterfall mainly because it’s 72″ tall and gives me all kinds of Zen vibes.
I specifically looked for an extra wide floor length mirror to add to this list. I love this addition because you don’t need a really large bathroom for it. Personally, I hate staring at myself in the mirror but you can’t deny that it makes the room bigger and brighter almost every time.
Stripes!!! A simple but lovely nautical bathroom shower curtain is an exception that creates a bright, crisp, clean feel in the morning. Although I don’t prefer white or navy bathroom rugs. White rugs get dirty easily and navy rugs show too much lint. That’s why I love the idea of a natural fiber rug to go with this bathroom look. Tip: get the extra long curtain and hang it ceiling high. I had to buy a 96″ curtain for my bathroom ceiling.
Everywhere you look, farmhouse doors are growing more and more popular. But have you ever priced them? They’re no where near an affordable add on. That’s why I fell in love with this over the toilet farmhouse cabinet that almost looks like a built in! Furniture makers have caught on that farmhouse doors are trendy and started making more pieces with the look.
Fancy, classy, and every girl should have one. This tufted high back chair comes in red and a few other bold colors. It’s another piece that needs a bit more room but always serves a need when you have to just sit for a moment and collect your thoughts, especially in the morning.
At first I thought that my velvety bench wouldn’t hold up well in a moist setting but I’ve had no problems. Here’s my newest bench and yes I often sit on it and dry off. Still working on the bathroom but I’ll be posting photos when I finish! Whew.
Lighting is underrated. My mood is instantly determined by the light in the room. Bright LED lights make me feel like I need to sit up in my chair for a boring work training. Soft lights relax me and in between light sconces like these modern sconces, are the perfect bathroom lighting addition for makeup prep. Ok, they’re also really fancy, which I adore.
I may lose a few of you here who don’t care for artificial plants. I realize that, but hear me out. The base of this artificial Yucca plant is what steals the show. It’s a mixture of modern bamboo stalk and greenery. I call it a perfect balance of modern and traditional. Plus, it’s 5′ tall and will give your bathroom a huge presence of nature with minimal space.
Have you ever seen anyone have a towel warmer outside of the ritzy hotels? If you have enough space for this bathroom towel warmer in your walk in closet, bathroom counter, or under the sink, you’ve just finished the last piece of your spa bathroom in style, no doubt! Winter residents, be warned that you might need a larger one for the bigger towels too!
What Are The Best Calming Colors For Home Decor?
According to House Beautiful, there are 16 calming colors for bathroom and general home decor.
- Light Blue
- Soft Gray
- Dark Green & Dark Gray
These are just a few but I probably have a good mix of 5 of them in my home. My gray sofa w/ teal and yellow pillows are probably a favorite. But when you have kids, yellow’s tend to get dull over time. I suggest finding the brightest yellow’s and opt for pillow covers that can be removed and washed!
