Guest Picks: Transform Your Bathroom Into Your Happy Place
I actually have a lot of plants in my bathroom. The mere thought of how much carbon dioxide they turn into clean, oxygen-filled air is really relaxing!
This lovely set of vintage-looking, apothecary-inspired bath accessories will add some throwback charm to your space. A full matching set is a great way to add a sense of cohesiveness to the bathroom, which always makes me say “ahh” when I sink into a warm bath.
This bamboo bath mat will add some rustic edge to your bathroom. And it makes me think of a Scandinavian sauna — an instant happy place!
This cool pair of hanging lanterns will help take you away. They have a really unique look and introduce a Turkish flair to your bathroom.
A nice new set of matching towels is a great way to relax the more compulsive part of your brain. If you’re looking for a spa-style happy place, grab a set of towels in whatever color you’re most obsessed with this season.
I’m kind of obsessed with this pegboard-style organizer. I don’t know if it’s because it’s flexible or so dang clever, but I want it. Then I can relax about the fact that I’m not committed to an unchanging piece of bathroom hardware forever.
These minimal, chrome-finish shower curtain hooks are a great way to add an affordable touch of class to your bathroom. Isn't it time to graduate from those super-cheap curtain hooks you got for your first apartment (that may or may not be a tad rusty)?
Just looking at a photo of this ombré shower curtain makes me feel relaxed. I don’t know if it’s the gradual lightening of the color or what, but I’m just Zenned out about it.
Ooh, this is a nice towel! The color mixture and subtle striping are very lovely, and it comes in a large size. There’s something about a nice big towel that makes the sense of bath time relaxation last just a couple minutes longer.
It’s no secret that a good book, a glass of wine and a hot bath are many people’s happy place. A tub tray like this helps alleviate anxiety about spillage or dropping your library book in the water.
Does the thought of broken glass in the bath stress you out? If you don’t want to give up wine and a bath, try these shatterproof, recyclable wineglasses.
A bathtub pillow is a great way to take the edge off if you're in need of a particularly long soak.
I like having a little table, bench or stool near my tub. It’s a great place to house a plant, set a glass of wine, or store a favorite rubber duck — whatever makes you the most Zen.
I don’t think many people could look at this hedgehog-inspired cotton swab holder and not smile. And a little cuteness might be just the thing your happy place needs.
I love the quasi-handmade wood look of this little nail brush. It’s perfect for the side of your tub.
Did you know that any toilet can be converted into a dual flush for $20 and a little DIY? If water conservation makes you happy, you might want to whip out the ol’ wrench.
If you don’t have much of a green thumb, a peace lily is a great indoor plant option. It’s really easy to take care of, and its leaves are a particularly lovely, shiny shade of green.
An acrylic holder is a great way to keep makeup and makeup accessories organized. Nothing stresses me out faster than a messy drawer of random bathroom accessories.
You'll need something cozy for your feet after you've hung out in your happy place. A good pair of slippers is important!
Relax in style with a big, fluffy robe. White or ivory preferred, of course!Next: Bathroom Storage: Where to Keep the T.P.?
