I have heard it said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. And while I don't disagree with the idea that the kitchen nourishes the heart, I do think that the bathroom runs a close second in importance as it nourishes the soul. At the end of a long day caught up in the hurly burly of the world's doings, surely there is nothing better than to soak in a tub of life giving water. Along this vein, I have been obsessing over Pottery Barn's Petaluma Double Sink Console although not necessarily the console itself but what is underneath it. Namely, I have been obsessing over the gigantic apothecary jars and the 10 million cotton buds (also known as Q-Tips in North America) one of them contains and all the other necessaries for one's toilette.
Luckily, I came across some large size vintage Crown mason jars, one of which is an Imperial (!) pint, recently. And so I came up with my own version of those apothecary jars due to the fact that I didn't think I could fit such large jars in my bathroom and, secondly, 10 million cotton buds is a lot of boxes of cotton buds to buy. I think an Imperial pint's worth is more than satisfactory.
And really, is there nothing more divine, more decadent and luxurious than a mile high stack of cloudlike towels tied with grosgrain ribbon?
Your Highness, your bath awaits.
