Décor: My Favorite Room

This is the post I did for Kim over at Savvy Southern Style back in January for her "My Favorite Room" Series. I was honored that she invited me to participate.  I thought I would post it on my blog for those who might have missed it.

Here’s a sneak peek at what my favorite room is.  Can you guess?  It’s all about being pampered.



Are you relaxed yet?

My favorite room in the house is the master bath and closet.  It’s hard to separate them because it’s actually one large connected suite.

Heated tile floors, crystal chandeliers, and fluffy white towels speak luxury to me.


Come on in!


It’s a place to unwind in the evening or rejuvenate in the morning.  This room is such a personal sanctuary and it’s where I spend a lot of time.  The shower is to the left and hard to get photos of.  You could have a party in there…it’s 6’ X 7’!!!


The best element in the room is, I think, the antique etched cherub glass over the tub.  It dates to the early 1900s and  was part of a door that we found in a Louisville architectural salvage shop when we were building the house.  I knew I had to have it even though I had no idea how I was going to use it.  Some antique items you just know you’ll never find again. It was my husband’s idea to have it installed between the bathroom and my dressing area.  It’s not an outside window.  What you see through it is part of the master closet.

This is my view from the tub when I’m soaking.  It’s so serene.


My vanity side.  The wallpaper is by Ronald Redding.  I like a bathroom to be soft and just whisper.  Not a lot of distracting things on the wall.


My husband’s side.


This is one of my favorite French finds.  A glass and nickel towel bar used in a Parisian hotel probably from the 1920s.   The glass rods are the  most gorgeous shade of aqua blue.


I have a collection of real clam shells and this one is my largest.  It is quite heavy I might add.  I like natural elements in a bathroom.  There’s an unexpected pop of green in the French glass float.


This is the entrance to the commode room and another clam shell.



I know you all are going to ask if my vanity stays this clutter free.  The answer is “yes”.  I’ve never been one to like lots of things on the counter.  I always hide as much as I can behind doors and in drawers.


When I’m ready to dress,  I head into the master closet/dressing room which is to the right through an open doorway.  This is the view from the bathroom.


Closet Factory designed all our closets.



This is leading to the small tucked away dressing area behind the tub.


This window lets in lots of natural light.  I just recently removed the heavy drapes.



I keep personal touches in here, like photos of me and my husband, and this charm bracelet which belonged to my mother.


This is the cherub window from the other side!



The tub is an air bath and I like it so much better than a whirlpool.  It provides effervescent bubbles when it’s on and it’s easier to keep clean.




I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour.

You’ll have to leave now.  A hot bubble bath is calling me.

Here’s to relaxation,

Kim your bathroom is gorgeous, I LOVE that window between your closet and bathroom! I think your closet and bathroom are both bigger than my master bedroom and your shower is bigger than my master bath! I could and would spend lots of time soaking in that beautiful tub!

Kim! I don't know where to start...it's gorgeous and relaxing and the elegance of it all is so dreamy. It is a lovely place to soak the day away. I must say I am a bit envious of your grand master closet. We have a small walk in off of our master bathroom and I would love to have room in there for a chest of drawers.
