In the evening after a long day of activities,
it is always nice to know that I can have that Calgon bath to take me away!
12 years ago, when we were working on the plans for our house,
there was one thing that was on my “must have” list. A free standing tub.
I went with a slipper claw foot tub and love it.
Once a month the Country French Design Series, post as a group, our unique perspectives on a common theme,
and this is the third in our three part series, “Morning, Noon and Night”
I invite you to enjoy the wonderful posts below envoking a French Country Evening.
This month I present a room that is part of my evening routine,
and I am sure it is part of yours too!!! 🙂
Another thing on my “must have” list for the house were bathrooms
that were large enough to accomodate a chair. Such a convenient thing to have in a bathroom.
Actually my granddaughter was the one who used the tub the most.
Now she is at the age when she would prefer showers, but her “Rubber Duckie”
that she had as an infant still remains on the ledge of the tub. I cannot seem to put it away!
Here she is when she was less than a month old wrapped in a towel after her bath.
This photo is a staple on the vanity.
Previously in this space was an antique cabinet.
The cabinet is now slotted to go to my son’s new home.
I brought this vintage table up from the media room and love the lighter feel.
Over the table hangs a print by P. Buckley Moss. It is a print of a watercolor of a Grist Mill
that has been deemed an historic site/building that is in Southwestern Virginia.
This particular print is so special to me, as it is a Grist Mill that was special to my dear friend
Ruth who passed away a couple years ago. The historic Grist Mill is situated on family property
that was dear to her. I pretty much start and end the day seeing this beautiful print.
Another fairly new item that I brought into the Master Bathroom is this sweet French Country
table that I purchased from my sweet friend Mary Alice.
It was originally yellow in color and I gave it a coat of ASCP Pure White.
It fit perfectly in this space where I originally had a three-tiered glass shelf.
I brought up the vintage French enamelware pitcher from the guest bathroom
that I purchased in France and love it on this sweet table.
On the table among the sea sponges is one of my favorite soaps that is made in North Carolina.
The smell of this lavender soap, so appropriately named Paris is so wonderful.
Actually it is also a favorite of my hubby’s … it sits by his sink in a wonderful ironstone bowl
that I got from guess who …. Mary Alice!
The Cherry cabinetry is by Wellborn. Crystal hardware by D. Lawless Hardware
On each side of the vanity are tall cabinets that serve as linen closets.
There is ample room for linens and storage.
Mirrors by Uttermost.
Bathroom rug is an indoor/outdoor rug by Dash and Albert …. perfect for a bathroom!
It’s getting late and it has been one of those “Calgon Take Me Away” days.
I will light my amazingly fragrant candle that my friend Claudia made for me.
And say good night!
But don’t go away as you will want to visit my 6 fellow French Country Design Bloggers
