admiring: color block towels

I’ve had some ideas percolating for awhile about our master bathroom. (I’m really good at percolating.) It’s one of those projects that isn’t really driven by necessity, although we do need to replace our bathroom sink faucet and show our exposed shower plumbing at the soaker tub a little love. The bathroom has looked the same for almost fifteen years now, and it just needs a little refresh. I’ve got all the ideas in my head, I just need to start to execute them at some point.

Last year, when I finished my professional exams, my parents gave me a generous gift in celebration of that. I told them I was going to spend it on this room because the room represents relaxation to me, especially if I take the beauty in the place up a notch.

I’m kicking it off with these:


Fouta Color Block Towels from Serena & Lily

Right before we left on vacation, I was sorting through the stack of accumulated mail and I saw these color block towels. Cotton on one side, looped terry on the other side. The blues were what got me.fouta_stack_clrblck_nvychmbry_grp
We have beautiful white towels in this room already, and when family members ask what we want for Christmas, we always have towels on the list. Let’s face it, they only stay white and fluffy for awhile. Then we “downgrade” them to the girls’ bathroom, and when they get really stiff and dingy, they find their way into the shop towel pile. I have no intention of getting rid of the white towels, but I was really taken by how pretty these are and how beautiful they might look hanging on shaker pegs on the wainscoting. I want to paint that wainscoting a really deep indigo, and I’m hoping that once these arrive (they are on backorder for a couple of weeks) that I’ll love them in person and they will give me a jumping off point for the wall color. I ordered two bath towels and two hand towels. I might add to that a little, but for now I think they might be just perfect. Simple and understated, with a modern edge to them. And maybe just a little bit like a summer beach towel, which will go well with a few other nods to the ocean that, you know, are percolating¬†a bit in my head.
