Scrub me silly ...

I wonder how much time I would spend in a bathroom or shower room if mine were as beguilingly handsome as those below. Sure, I can take care of hygiene just about anywhere, but a space that washes over me with dreamy drama would make me swoon on a daily basis.

We can talk about formal baths later (I do love those, too.) But, today I'm inspired by rustic simplicity with a bit of wow, and the photos above and below (via Greige) tick all my boxes for desirablity.

Wood, stone and my favorite earthy paint hue is all it would take to send me to a happy place where, no doubt, my toes would end up a wrinkled mess from too much time spent soaking. I think that would be a small price to pay for luxury of this magnitude.

Add in natural light from skylights (and French doors for the uninhibited) and I could be blissfully happy and thoroughly clean.

Now, where is that bottle of vino I requested? Oh, could it be sitting next to the basins below? Image via Linen and Lavender.

Wood in a wet room just seems plausible when it looks this good. But, I wonder how much upkeep these surfaces require to maintain their beauty. No matter, I love them all.

I love the bathroom with the feels so airy & invigorating. Add some music and champagne and I would soak for SOOO long!
