Christmas at my place...part two.

(The fabulous mirror was a flea market find. I will eventually paint it antique white but I'm loving the gold right now. Please ignore my patched up window frames as they need painting also lol).

(We chose travertine marble for the floor)

(I adore the little child size french chair for when little guests want to wash their hands)

(My STUNNING new candlesticks that were an early chrissy present from my mum)

(I have just a simple aqua coloured curtain for my shower)

(My sweet vintage waste paper bin, an ebay find)

(This is my "medicine cabinet" filled with all the essentials such as perfumes, scented soaps and body lotions)

(This was another darling present I received along with my framed shoe)

This is just a quick post to show off my pretty bathroom at Christmas time :)

My bathroom is my favourite room in the house. It's my sanctuary, more so than my bedroom. It's a place where I can shut the door, light my candles, fill my gorgeous spa bath with scented oils and bubbles, occasionally have a glass of wine and literally wash all my cares away. My family know when I'm bathing they must leave me alone and when I'm finished I feel refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to take on the world again. It also helps me wind down for a good nights sleep. Just like Oprah, bathing is actually like a hobbie for me. I certainly don't need a therapist when I have daily therapy like this ;)

I truly believe when decorating a home you should never neglect your bathroom treating it just as any old space. Make it a priority and design it in a way that will make you want to change your lifestyle ever so slightly to spend a little time for yourself :)

Your bathroom is just lovely and I agree with you about the importance of bathrooms. Some of the prettiest rooms in some houses are the bathrooms and rightfully so. Being such small spaces they are easier on the budget to decorate than larger areas. Thanks for sharing your pretty bathroom with us and I really like your mirror.

Dear Villa anna - I love how Christmas even sneaks into your bathroom!:-)and I have exactly the same bath tap in the children's bath as you have!!

Great minds......!!

It's amazing how that tap looks great in any style bathroom - our bathroom is a different style to yours - it's somewhere in my archives check it out if you have a mo. (I'm not sure if the tap is featured - but I'm really happy with it)

Happy Christmas!
