The Princess and Her Bath

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.
I'm linking up to A Beach Cottage and Good Life Wednesdays.

I actually have lots of white in my bath room, and rolled up spa towels (i call them) in the purest of white. I love the look, and I love your bath accessories. You did a great job, and man oh man that photo of Pottery Barn's sink is awesome!

I could not agree with you more, a beautiful bathroom truly does nourish the soul! I love the idea of these jars too and have collected several to store sponges, soaps etc they really do add to a beautiful feeling of decadence!!!

Yes, I have admired that very same vanity console. You have a wonderful substitute that captures the pampered tone.
