tub envy

Sigh.  Unfortunately, I don’t currently have a bath tub in the little pied–à–terre we are renovating but I am looking around and trying to find a spot for one.   If I could work out the privacy issue, I’d have a bathing room that opened up completely to the garden.  I could soak my cares away amidst the scent of lavender and roses watching the hummingbirds and butterflies make their rounds on a sunny morning or slip into a midnight bath and count the stars.  —Doesn’t that sound heavenly?

The wood elements and mix of textures in the rustic bathing room above results in a cozy, enveloping feeling.  To make it ideal, I’m imagining a fireplace on one wall and on the other, a bank of French doors open to a lush garden.  Actually, scratch that.  As long as I’m dreaming… I’m in the bath overlooking rolling hills somewhere in Tuscany.  Let’s see…Montepulciano…San Gimignano…Yes.  That’s the ticket.   
 Ahhh.  …Take me away!

  1. Hello,
    Love looking at your blog and the lovely photogrpahs. Linen and Lavender are probably my two most favorite things!
