We decided to have a little bathroom makeover here. Something sort of Casbah and Gypsy and Boho.
It's not exactly easy when you live in a typical Aussie white tiled affair, though.
Nonetheless, we have brass tapware, an aged brass vase with ferns, a brass box with worn patina to house hair accessories, candlelight, crystals adorning the wall, an antique linen hand towel draped on the basin, a Parisian clock, a lush ruby robe, and pretty amber pharmaceutical style bottles holding skin care.
A peacock hued tufted rug, and a vividly embroidered footstool have been added to enhance the Casbah feel.
A Persian style rug was on the list to serve as a bathmat, but The Diva
Child has overruled me and we now have her favourite peacock blue as
bathmat and towels, with real peacock feathers still to be sourced to
act as focal point.
The stool was a real find. It's funny sometimes how just the thing you
need pops into the Universe, just when you need it. I would never have
predicted in a million years that an embroidered boho style footstool
would be on sale the very week I decided I wanted one, but there it was.
And under $25 to boot. It's large enough for us to sit on to dry
tootsies or perform a pedicure, and small enough to tuck away when not
in use. Perfect.
It's a cute look, easy to manage with a teen daughter who insists on monopolising the space, shedding eyeshadow, long hair, and lipstick in her wake!
