Show Us Where You Live Friday: Bathroom

Show Us Where You Live Friday is graciously hosted by Kelly at Kelly's Korner. This week is bathrooms... and I will be giving you a tour around my master bathroom. We have a cream and black motif, accented with red and a scroll-y pattern. There is so much more I envision and would love to do, however, there are other priorities in the house right now. ;)

Looking into the bathroom from the master bedroom:
The sink and toilet are to the right, bathtub and shower are to the left. Pretty basic, but functional. ;)

We will explore the right side first. ;) I try to keep the counter tops simple and uncluttered... because I have a bad habit of leaving things out. haha
Accordingly, I have shelves that I put my "every day" products on to keep them off the counter. ;)



I have two simple glass jars that hold cotton balls and cotton swabs. I tied a scroll-y print ribbon around them to pretty them up.In the center is a long wooden dish that holds a few candles and cream colored, wooded potpourri.
A hand towel with our "theme" print.
Right next to the hand towel is a black scroll-y cross.

The only way to not get in the picture with the mirror is to hide in the bathtub and hold the camera up high. haha Yes, I was in the bathtub.


From the bathtub...looking right... door to the master bedroom.
Now we are going to the right side of the bathroom...

I have a jewelry armoire and a few old glass bottles with roses.
A few wall decorations...
And the bathtub.

Towel rack.

Around the bathtub...
A few candles in different sized mason jars... a red-topped jar of Epsom salt with a ribbon holding a heart shaped scoop...

Back out into the bathroom... at the end is a window (yes, I am a master of the obvious) haha...
a stand up shower to the left... and a toilet room to the right. I promise there is nothing exciting in there...
Except this! A fun toilet paper holder! ;)
And that concludes the bathroom tour! ;)
Make sure to check out the other participants' posts this week!

That looks like a really peaceful place for a soak. I really like the jewelry armoire in there, it ties the cabinetry to the tub side of the room!

Melissa,

Your bath is really pretty. I love the black and cream. And I had to laugh, I am the Queen of Clutter! My husband says that he is happy we do not have a private bath because I would have my stuff EVERYWHERE!!

The jewelry armoire is to die for. What a clever idea to put it in there. It looks fantastic!!

I would love to join the event but I do not feel like cleaning up any of my bathrooms right now!! And you know how everything shows up on pictures!! ;-)

Have a great weekend!!!

xoxo

Cute!! I keep my necessary junk in the drawer and cabinets. Our sink area and cabinets are very similar. I am slowly{in my head, mostly ;)} getting to my bathroom. I have a chandelier I painted that needs to be hung over my tub and some other decorative things put on the wall, and I will be semi-happy with it for now.
Love your's!!

You have one of the nicest bathrooms posted here. I love the black scrolly towel bar. I have a container with candles, too. You have a very nice blog. I am going to add you as a favorite.

BTW, I think I'll join your town tour.
