One thing I always try to keep in mind while decorating is the initial impression upon entering a room.
I was enthused at the thought of our vintage inspired hook being one of the focal points of the bathroom. The lines provide a visual interest all on their own.
But when those lines are covered up with a heap of hanging damp towels? Not so much.
The hook looks much happier in its new home here:
I decided that bath towels will hang on the back of the door instead. With something like this:
Which would still allow some of the hooks to show, since there are so many of them.
And on the wall, I played switcheroo with our enameled container. It used to be a towel holder.
but now serves as a sweet little flower box instead.
A much improved first impression.
I’m thinking a new subdued look for fall and winter is in order, but for now we’re enjoying the summery burst of colors.
