As promised. . . I have bathroom photos that I took as I decorated for the Fall Issue of Country Rustic magazine. . .I know that many of you have seen our bath many times, in various stages of decor. . .but I added a few new items and vignettes. . .that have become my favorites. . .such as this welcoming bath sign that can be seen from the living room. . .
and below. . .a whimsical towel holder. . .
Isn't this wonderful for a bath? . . Someone made it from old metal plumbing elements. . .So appropriate for welcoming visitors. . .Let's face it. . .the bathroom is almost always the most visited room in the house. . .
The small scale utility door found in an out-building on the farm, hides the more modern commode and shower. . .so that the bath from the living room appears to be the 1930s. . .
The only tribute to Fall in this room are the cotton stalks. . .I like to keep the room really simple. . .clean. . .and relaxing to the eye. . .
A little explanation about the bath for our new followers. . .This room was once a small bedroom. . .When we began renovating the old farmhouse. . .the bathroom was a make-do area on the enclosed back porch. . .There was no place to put the hot water heater. . .the central heat duct work. . .or the washer and dryer. . .In fact, there were no closets anywhere in the house. . .So, we took the small bedroom for the bath and hid all the modern conveniences behind the louvered doors. . .Then we tied the window treatment to them with vintage shutters on the inside. . . giving the entire room a feeling of a farmhouse plantation style. . .
I absolutely love this vintage style bathroom. . .
It is so big and roomy and a delight to see. . .
Friends and visitors love it, too.
I think next I'll wind up this series with the cupboard decor for Fall in my next post. . .
Then it will be on to the Christmas holidays. . .
This year. . .I plan to pull out my log cabin collection. . .
for something new and unique . .
I have gathered miniature animals and embellishment for them all. . .
Although it's only November, I'm ready for some holiday cheer. . .
I'll be back again later this week!!!
