I Couldn't Help Myself

You know how it is, sometimes you just can't help but to go for it.  When I did the refresh to the master bathroom I fell in love with those really cute polka dot towels.  So on another trip to Home Goods, I saw them again and just had to get some more.  The bath towels, wash clothes and more hand towels just called my name.  

Our Master Bathroom is one of the compromises we made with this house.  It is by no means big and roomy.  It is a narrow galley type bathroom with the tub and vanity in one section then the toilet and shower in another section.  The shower is roomy since it spans the full 5 1/2 feet, but that means the whole bathroom is slim.  Getting a good picture is really a challenge.

To give you perspective as to the placement of the bathoom, here it is viewed from the bed.

As you can see, not very wide, definitely a galley.

Swapping out accessories and changing the towels to these cute polka dot ones started the whole refresh.  You can see the original post here if you missed it.  In that post I share where this bathroom started and then the free granite and flooring leftover from other remodels to help give this area a facelift. (As I mentioned in a previous post, I still have to paint the vanity.  I know way over due, I really need to do this.)

Now that brings us up to date, so after I found more towels, of course I had to play all over again.  

I turned them around to the gray side for the hand towels on the counter and the bath towels in the shower area.

 A couple were added to the tub also.

 Isn't that fun.  I think they add just the right amount of fun to the bathroom.  Nothing serious, just fun.

Like I said before.  I am easy, just a few towels get me all inspired.  How about you, do the simple things get you going down a decor rat hole too?

  1. HI Marty- Okay where did you get the towels? Did I miss that in the post? And, when you paint the vanity that is going to make the floor pop! I need to do the same thing in my master bath too! Happy Sunday! laura

  2. Polka dots add fun to any decor (or clothing)! Hope you are mending nicely. The vanity can will be beautiful tho, when you get to it.

  3. Oh Marty, you’re home is so nice but stays comfortable and cozy too! I love your style! The polka dots look great!~Dazee~

  4. Those polka dot towels are charming and cheerful, and make the bathroom even more inviting! They add a just the right touch! I never 'play with towels' - I go with single color towels, playing it very safe! You've inspired me to take a chance on towels with a little more personality!

  5. We gave our girls the same towels in polka dots, some in pink and some in purple. I love this color, hope I can find them for us. About your bathroom, it is pretty, inviting and comfortable enough.
    Have a great week ahead.

  6. Polka dots are so cheerful! I can understand your going back for more. What a great find!

  7. Marty, I do love the polka dot towels, they are fun! You made a good choice to go back and get more! Have a wonderful week!

  8. Sometimes the simplest touches make the biggest impact. I love those towels and the pretty, fun touch they add to your bath.

  9. Marty, I'm so glad you went back to get those towels! They are darling and really add to the room. This bathroom does not have the builder basic look at all to me now.

  10. Marty those cute towels are the perfect pop of fun! Just like you. :)

  11. I love polka dots, too. Best wishes for a wonderful weekend. Linda @Crafts a la mode

  12. I love me some polka dot anything and those towels are the perfect amount of fun to your classic and pretty bathroom. Enjoy!
