Something about neatly stacked crisp clean towels drives me crazy… in a good way. I own all of two bath towels. (Not including the two I just bought from the dollar store to use for cleaning that are already frayed to hell and leaving lint everywhere. Don’t buy towels from the dollar store.) I dream of a day when I have a dozen plush bath towels in rotation, always a clean one to grab. I’m dreaming big, guys!
This bathroom is very much up my alley. You positively can not go wrong with white subway tile in my opinion, and I enjoy it with both light and dark grout. The warm wood floor and the lovely dark tub balance out all the white in this room very nicely. And then there’s the ample use of brass hardware: much win. I live for the day I have a brass faucet. It’s possible that I have weird priorities.
Of the three bathrooms today, this one is what I find most appealing at the moment. Not every home can pull off weathered wood-clad walls, but oh how lovely and unique. It’s also possible that the darker color of this room is appealing to me right now because my eyes are Tired City and I’m squinting at everything bright and light.
SPEAKING OF BATHROOMS. Finally finally FINALLY I have a date set for my tub and shower surround to be ripped out and replaced. And that’s Monday. Eee! For those of you who don’t know, I have had an ongoing slow leak problem for years. Despite many professionals taking a look, we still don’t know with any certainty what the problem is. At any rate my shower is awful and old and needs to be replaced anyway so I am having that done which will hopefully also lead to us pinpointing the leak (which shows up in the kitchen ceiling directly below the tub). Design-wise the new shower is not overly exciting. No luxury tile for this lady, just a good quality vikrell unit. This may not even be worth sharing photos of on the blog, but if I get excited enough I may change my mind. :)
