Artful arrangements (in the bathroom)

Bathrooms are far too often disregarded as purely functional spaces, with little or no personality. I love how these little vignettes bring beauty to that functionality. A framed photography, a simple bloom. Even the tiniest of corners can completely transform the whole space, with just a few choice pieces, artfully arranged.

I love a stylish bathroom. Not just in design but also in the personal touches like those orchids or photographs. Very inspiring- I just might have to spruce up mine!

Definitely true - such simple items have such a big impact!

Charlotta Ward said...

Yes I agree!
I think a bathrooms should be furnished with atmosphere in mind rather than just the practicality aspect. I am all for little 'moments' like the ones you shared.

Have a lovely weekend.

I think every room needs one lovely vignette. (Or a focal point).

And yes, I agree with you the bathrooms tend to be neglected. You inspired me to get an orchid for my own!

Happy long weekend to you dear, Sharalee!

The personal details really add so much. And I also like to snoop around and see what beauty products other people are using! ;-)
