I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last went to Paula's house to see her newly decorated bathroom. The last time I showed you her beautiful garden and promised I would give you a tour of the interior of her home. Time flew by and I had almost forgotten....well I never forgot just haven't had the time. There's just so much to show, so this time it's the bathroom we're going to see since that was the pretence for the visit, but once there it was difficult to not want to take pictures of every amazing room. I remember the first time I went to Paula's about 10 yrs ago when she had just been there a year... I was so enchanted by the place and remember saying to her it looked like Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic....she replied "well yes... but more grungy". This has been her style for many years before she moved to this house and it seems funny now that it's become so popular again......proving that good taste never goes out of style..
This is the view as you walk in...forgot to get a picture of the clawfoot tub. Freshly painted with new linen shower curtain and window treatment. The big difference is the big cabinet that was exchanged for a smaller dresser.
Little birdy greeting you in the morning would get you in a good mood even if your weren't a "morning person"
Beautiful antique lace wrapped around old wooden spools
Newly purchased towels hung on an old wire hooks
Apothocary jars filled with essentials and antique buttons wrapped in more lace.
Love the wire frog hung on the wall purchased on our trip to Brimfield last Fall. Can't wait to go back with Laura and Paula.
Let's open the door and take a better look shall we?
She even makes a simple candle look special!!!
Little crocheted socks hung on this wire hanger also bought at Brimfield the time we all went. I think at first she was going to use them as wings for a doll but came up with this instead. I like it better don't you???
it's appropriate that Paula would have antique pharmaceuticals bottles and paraphernalia since she's a pharmacist.
I wonder what's in those bottles???Hhhhmm,,,,
Hope you enjoyed the tour.....thank you Paula for letting me come and enjoy your private sanctuary.
