The staff is totally unimpressed and is taking advantage of a little sunny spot to have a group snooze! However, they should be impressed because...
...the inspiration for the bath was the wonderful French print by Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen whose art work often includes cats! But when I was searching for a shower curtain, I was stumped…nothing looked frenchy…
…until I spied these buffalo check drapery panels, purchased at a reduced price when Linens and Things was closing. They just called my name and made me buy them! I like my bathrooms to look like just another room of the house…because they are! No worries...there's a liner tucked in behind them!
And here is a better look at the sink and my new addition…my new frenchy fixtures! And, of course, you cannot find a room in my house without plates...
...and maybe even a sugar and creamer to hold little French soaps! That’s one of my favorite transferware patterns…Johnson Brothers Old Britain Castles in pink.
On the other side of the room is a little more Christmas with a wreath added to a toile-framed frenchy picture, a towel bar from the old Southern Living at Home. For those of you who have asked, it is part of a four piece set called "Serenity" that I still see occasionally online or at Goodwill, although I spray painted mine black rather than keep the original gun metal grey.
I added my easy Joyeux Noël French tea towels to serve as hand towels for the Christmas season. You can find directions for making them including the graphic here.
And there you have it...my Frenchy guest bath! I feel transported to la Belle Époque each time I see it and I smile!
