Sprucing Up the Bathroom!

Have you ever felt that in a gorgeous hotel bathroom, the bubble bath is always more special, the shampoo smells sweeter, the soaps feel more luxurious and you feel all tingly with anticipation? Sigh!!! A soak in the tub becomes a sweet relaxing experience and not just something routine.
Recreating the same look at home, with space constraints and on a budget can be challenging. Challenging but not impossible! It is possible to create a luxe look with just a few key pieces.
Here I shared all gorgeous bathroom decor bits that I'm secretly coveting (well, not so secret anymore). Our bathroom has a neutral colour scheme...timeless white subway tiles, light and dark grey cabinets and lots of white and wooden accents. Keeping with the contemporary scandinavian theme, the natural Round Stump Stool from Edgar Home was a no brainer. It's a stunning piece of organic furniture that fit in seamlessly with our design. Check out their hand carved Stump Bowl made from cypress stumpage salvaged from logging operations...so beautiful!!! And those timber lamps... LOVE!
Just look at those natural 'im'perfections in the grain, the cracks and the different shades of golden brown, gorgeous!
Continuing on with recreating my hotel bath fantasy, a gorgeous sweet smelling hand poured scented candle from Provincial Living and lavender scented hand-cured soaps from our holiday in Marseille, France last year. I picked up a whole lot of them when we were there, they smell just divine. 
Finishing off with a touch of bling, garden greenery in my gold dipped bottles (a spur-of-the-moment DIY project from a few months ago)!
My favourite top hanging from the gorgeous shelf that my husband built for me a couple of years ago.
I'll probably move the stool around my home in a few months. I'm already thinking of the possibilities, maybe in the living room as an occasional table or in the guest bedroom as a quirky bedside table. [Just a note of caution, since this is a real log stump table, it's very heavy and you need to be careful when moving it around. Especially watch those precious toes!]
There's a lot more to come in the Bathroom Series, BUT, I'm off for a long soak in my 'hotel' bath with some acoustic music, scented candles, a good book and my gorgeous bath table! 
See you all later!
