Simply Shabby: Redefining Your Bathroom

A clean bathroom is a happy bathroom. A stylish one is even happier.

This week’s post is a little “how-to” session on creating a well organized, shabby chic style bathroom. While everyone has a different style preference, I believe that adding a few rustic, natural elements is just good for the soul.

First off: take time to pamper yourself. Make your bathroom a place to relax; a sanctuary. The handmade soaps pictured above from DirtyDeedsSoaps are beautiful and come in a variety of scents and colors. Display them in a decorative dish or arrange several in a crate as shown in the photo for a creative accent of color in your space.

If space allows, add a chair or bench to your room. Furniture adds a bit of luxury to a bathroom. You can use it as decoration, holding stacks of neatly folded towels and baskets of toiletries, or you can use it functionally as a place to sit and lotion your legs or to paint your toenails after a relaxing bubble bath. Keeping with our shabby chic style, this handmade bench made from reclaimed wood, from brandmojointeriors, serves as a perfect example.

Burlap accents have been making an appearance in a variety of decorating styles lately. It adds a bit of texture to your decorating scheme and compliments a rustic theme perfectly. Check out the creations of Mary at hoganfe handmade originals. She sells all kinds of handmade accessories for your home (and even your wedding!), including the adorable organizer bin below. Use them to organize and sort your odds and ends or use them to hold a festive floral arrangement.

You will soon enough notice a Mason Jar trend in my posts…I simply LOVE them! They fit well with any decorating style and have limitless organization possibilities. I have some things in the works for future posts, so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out GneissSpice‘s bathroom magnetic storage solutions.
