If y’all are anything like me, being forced to stay home during this pandemic has made your bathroom your place of refuge, your place to gather your thoughts, your place of calm. In early 2019, I turned my bathroom into a spa (here), and it was beautiful, but instead of being warm and welcoming, it was cold and distant. It was white and sage, and I was always on edge, constantly trying not to stain anything or get anything dirty. In short, it’s upkeep required too much of my time and occupied way too much of my brain space. So I made some changes.
I had pinned some master bathroom ideas that really appealed to me, but as I pinned, I found that I really liked the idea of having one long rug to span the length of my tile floor. Previously, I had had two rugs which meant that my bare feet still had to touch the cold tile floor every time I went to the bathroom. I did not like that. I already had to have a little space heater in the bathroom to take the chill off, but it did not really help make the floor warmer either.
On a whim, I stopped by Ross for really no reason at all, but that’s where I found a runner for less than $15, and so began my bathroom transformation. Luckily for me, I didn’t have too many changes to make other than adding some new towels and repurposing some of my wall hangings to complete the look. The most difficult part for me to figure out was what to place on the wall above my shower. I decided to think outside the box, and in doing so, I chose to use table chargers as wall hangings, and they turned out well.
What really brought about the calm in the space was the colors I chose to incorporate. Since learning that I have a preference for warm colors and bohemian decor, I included items and elements that would bring this vibe to life. I did not spend too much time worrying about whether or not items matched or would would work well together, I just added items that made me happy and brought me a sense of calm.
The elements of nature and the natural colors really provided the tranquility that I was trying to achieve. My bathroom really is my favorite place to escape.
Having a place of calm is a must. I hope you have a tranquil place to rejuvenate and revive, if not, get busy creating it!
