Bathroom Reading: This Too Shall Pass (Pun Intended)

A lot of soul searching happens in the bathroom. Think about it. How much time do you spend weekly in yours? Between showering and taking care of any other business, time spent can really start to add up! One of my favorite things to read are motivational and inspirational works, and like most people, the bathroom is the only place where I can find time to enjoy them. I recently was sent an article on just appreciating life, no matter your situation. It was from the authors of 1000 Little Things Happy Successful People Do Differently, this particular article spoke to me, so I had to feature it on our blog for our new category, Bathroom Reading. I hope you enjoy!

Contemporary Meets Rustic Bathroom Style

Bathroom styles have certainly changed over the years, with a number of trends leaving us wondering how it became popular in the first place (furry toilet covers to name one). A bathroom design style that is becoming increasingly popular in the design community, and a personal favorite our ours, is pairing rustic features and accents with contemporary appliances and design. This gives your bathroom a timeless feel that brings both warmth and class to the setting, a difficult combo to pair. See below a few textures and looks we are fond of, and feel free to share your designs with us!

Pairing the sink and vanity in the first image with the all white accent would give you the ‘home-y’ feel while maintaining a level of sleek and modern design. Our idea for the whisky barrels that have been cut in half is that they would serve nicely as towel holders or storage! After they have been properly cleaned, of course. We recommend most of our Add A Frame styles for a contemporary feel, but our Camden frame in Nickel would be perfect!
