The ultimate bathrooms, in my opinion, are the ones that are furnished as you would any other room in your home, with a beautiful antique chest, or perhaps a glass fronted armoire, an exquisitely upholstered chair, a daybed or chaise longue, maybe even a Persian carpet and certainly a chandelier. I think I have visions of a Downton Abbey type of existence when the genteel lady would languish in a copper tub in her boudoir.....
Although the reality is, if I lived in that era, I would probably be scrubbing off the grime of the day in a zinc tub in the kitchen!
I love the beautiful wide floorboards in this bathroom (so does the dog, it seems)
A simple upholstered chair is often all you need to add warmth to your bathroom and to lift it from being a functional space to a beautiful space.
If you have the room, a daybed or chaise longue would be a real luxury in a bathroom.
So much nicer to store your bathroom accessories in a beautiful antique than a purely functional bathroom cupboard.
This beautiful chest of drawers makes a huge impact in this all white bathroom.
I wonder if the servants have prepared my bath yet!
Till next time
