The Simply Luxurious Life®: More Powder!  

July 6, 2010

More Powder!

Luxury is something that you should experience in your day to day routine.  Luxury can be found in the simplest tasks, the once thought to be mundane routines and that is why a woman’s bathroom should exude a beautiful personal aesthetic. 

Recently I have been engrossed with Debra Ollivier’s Entre Nous: A Woman’s Guide to Finding Her Inner French Girl, and found her commentary on the powder room to be quite true.  The beauty you share with the world is ultimately the first face someone sees, so it is imperative that it express the confidence of the beautiful woman you believe yourself to be.  Your bathroom is a sacred place and should be decorated with care.  Whether it be changing the wall color, hanging wallpaper, positioning a gorgeous mirror or placing antique perfume bottles on a shelf, the decor you choose should actively propel you to linger, to take a bit more care each time you step in to enhance your natural beauty.  Below are a handful of bathrooms I wouldn’t mind lingering in.  Which would like to spend time in? I’d love to hear.  Have a wonderful Tuesday.

I spend so much time in the bathroom - I have a bath practically every single night! - that it's essential that it's a pretty room! The third photo has those bowl-type sinks; we're getting something similar (but with dark wood) for our new bathroom. Can't wait!

I adore the last two. I have a fascination with clawfoot tubs. I always tell my other half if we ever came into a lot of money, I would buy a house with a large bath and add one in. I can just imagine a long, hot, relaxing lavender soak with the latest novel. Ahh...a girl can dream, right!

Happy Tuesday!

I love the photo that's third up from the bottom....the chandelier, the big windows, and that gorgeous tub! Beautiful post.

I was just talking to my brother on the phone, as he was offering to build me my dream jacuzzi someday! I love these bathrooms, especially the copper, clean whiteness and the bowl-type sinks. Powder room wisdom rings so true too!

I'll take the copper tub and soaring ceilings, please! I bet blasting some classical while soaking in THAT space would be like transporting yourself to another world!

PS: Thanks for stopping by G&G!

I just joined your lovely site today. I am so. . .happy. The last two years I have been subscribing to different magazines, none of them are satisfying that "something" in me. But, your inspirational writings and beautiful photos did it. Thank you so much. Look forward to visiting here often.
