Tub with a view: Elephant with his trunk in the jacuzzi tub

 How often do you get a friendly elephant to test the temperature of your bath water? Taking a bath with an elephant is definitely on my bucket list!

Hello Kitty bathroom tiles

When I was a kid I was a huge Hello Kitty fan. I loved going to the shops to check out all the new hello kitty merchandise. One of my favorite pieces was a hello kitty aloha pencil. I didn`t sharpen it for the longest time because I didn`t want to use it up. I still have that hello kitty sharpener and still can`t resist stopping to check out hello kitty merchandise whenever I spot some, ok, and maybe buying one or two things... So when I saw these hello kitty tiles I had to snap some photos.

Love this little red and white heart tile boarder. 

Aren`t these tiles with the hello kitty bow pattern adorable?


These hello kitty tiles would be fun for a girl's bathroom. I can just picture a little girl wearing her hello kitty pjs, brushing her teeth with her hello kitty toothbrush in this bathroom.
Were you a big hello kitty fan? What is your favorite piece you own?

Above the door bathroom storage solutions

It's fun to look at all the pretty bags in this photo. I am in love with Goyard bags at the moment, especially the blue shade of this yummy bag! I don't know if I would want to keep my precious bags and shoes in the bathroom like this. All that humidity must not be good for these beauties. It does look spectacular thought. And oh the amount of storage, heaven for city apartments with little space!
 It would be great to style this shelving with bathroom products. I could see replacing the rows of shoes with pretty bath towels maybe do an ombre effect with the towels. I`d get towels in varying shades of orange and pink and stack descending from light to dark. Then I'd add a section with matching soaps, bath salts, a dish of bath bombs, oils and lotions all in pretty containers , a big glass jar full of my nail polishes,and some reading material....stacks of Vogue, Instyle and Inc magazine and maybe a few saucy hardcover novels. For the higher up shelves I'd use those to store glass vases and crystal candlesticks.
Now if you don`t have room for a big storage unit like this, then here are a few great examples of easy, build in a weekend, over the door shelving projects: 
The wire basket to hold the toilet paper is a great idea. It looks good & it makes it easy to reach the tp without having them come tumbling down on your head.
Case in point:
This makes me think of an old client of mine, their bathroom had a shelf like this. It must have had over 100 roles of toilet paper stacked on it. They definitely shopped at Costco!
Ok, not exactly a bathroom, but I thought the recessed shelving was a great idea to
copy for above the bathroom door.
And this would also work great over the door. The glass window shutters add a nice rustic touch and you wouldn`t have to worry about things falling onto your head if someone slams the door.
