A Little Bathroom Refresh...

Sunday, January 26, 2020

Sometimes (typically at 2am, when Neda is screaming and my eyes are glued to the monitor trying to figure out why) I feel like we haven't made any strides in this parenting thing — why did she stop sleeping through the night? Why is she eating less? Does she have a cold? Is that a diaper rash? It's all-consuming. But other times, I think back over the last four months and am in awe of how much easier it has gotten. She's napping, and I'm writing a blog post! We all change our clothes in the morning! We feel comfortable having friends over! I cry less than I used to! More than anything: I'm tackling things that have been on my to-do list for years

Over the past three years that we've lived in our apartment, B and I have continuously changed little things here and there — new throw pillows in the living room, a juicer and Nespresso machine in the kitchen, a little beer and sparkling water fridge in the den — but we've never done anything to the bathroom, a room that has desperately needed a refresh. 

So, earlier this month we finally decided to give that little room a little upgrade. First up, towels. We loved our old towels. In fact, we've often said they were our favorite wedding presents. They were so, so plush! And used to feel  like you were hugging a cloud. But after much, much use, they were stiff, stained and needed to be replaced. We're loving our new Turkish cotton towels, which are extremely soft, and light, but absorbent.

We also added a new bathmat, this chic candle and this trinket dish to hold accessories before we step in the shower or at the end of the day. These are small changes, but they've made a big impact on a tiny space — has anyone else needed a new bathmat for years and just decided to do everything but buy a new one? I used to wash the old one weekly in hopes of it feeling new and finally gave in. I'd highly recommend splurging the $20 before yours also becomes paper thin. 

These days, Neda's nursery, and our bathroom and bedroom seem to be the only rooms I spend time in during the weekdays. So, a cozy towel, a relaxing scent for the end of the day and something shiny and gold, go a long way.

  1. Incredible Article it its truly instructive and inventive update us as often as possible with new Ancestry upgrades. its was truly important. much obliged.

  2. Hi Ladan, nice share. I've been using bath towel of Wayfair. I like the look and weight of these towels. I've washed them several times, and the color remains true. Unluckily, they just don't work to soak up water the way it should. Drying off takes long time. So, I won't buy more of these towels because of that, but they are pretty!

  3. Great job for publishing such a beneficial web site. Your web log isn’t only useful but it is additionally really creative too. There tend to be not many people who can certainly write not so simple posts that artistically. Continue the nice writing Bathroom Remodel
