A Glamorous Bathroom !

It's been quite a while since I have posted, but I certainly have been not been a stranger to the blogosphere! I have been busy with lots of projects and ideas I can't wait to share with you!

There is so much to be inspired by out there and these incredible bathroom photos just really got my brain spinning!

You may have seen these shots floating around various blogs talking about the beautiful photography by Martin Cederblad or the creative styling of Eva Lindh...see more HERE.

Even though this bathroom is definitely contemporary, there are many glamorous vintage elements in this room as well!

So besides my own love of antiques and vintage, and the fact that I have been spending a crazy amout of time on Etsy lately, I had a brainstorm!

Could I recreate the same look in my own bathroom with all of the wonderful items available on the Etsy Vintage site?

Come with me as I travel through a few Etsy stores that have a few items that would transform any run of the mill bathroom into a luxurious bath perfect for primping and pampering!

How about a decadent pair of cottom damask bath towels? These are from Chadwick Cottage 57, and feature cascades of roses and ribbons in creamy white.

Don't forget a beautiful handtowel, too. This one is from the early 1900's and has the most elegant knotted fringe, and this entire store, Beautiful Reign is over the top eye candy!

This salmon pink nightie is just too pretty to put away in a drawer never to be seen! From the 1920-30's, the silk, bias cut gown is just covered in fine pleating and embroidery. This seller, LaBoheme, is from France...but of course!

Why stop at the feather boa when you can have the whole jacket? White marabou and fully lined, this is offered by Antoinette's Attic. Yummy!

Every glamorous girl needs a satin sleep mask! How about this one in black satin trimmed in lace and pearls from A Better Time?

Ok, these are not exactly the same sweet pink polka dot mules...but look at 'em!! These are printed pony hair Springolators from the 50's. Need I say more? They are from Pretty Kitty 13.

I loved this pink rose embroidered pillow. It's from Pink Willy 506 and has a velveteen back.

This oval hand hooked vintage rug would be perfect with it's raspberry, pink, sage and jadeite colors! Haute Country Vintage has lots of wonderful things in their shop to browse!

A bathroom like this needs lots of pretty bottles and atomizers. This crystal one from Vintage Jewels And More is embellished with a pretty rose on top and sits on an elaborate gold metal base.

I can't even imagine this room NOT having a bottle of the classic "Joy" perfume from Jean Patou Paris, can you? Vintage Items N More is worth a look.

I thought these great silverplate baskets would be the perfect thing to fill with sponges, soaps or other neccessities on the counters. Check out the collection of them from Effie Myrtles House.

Hope you enjoyed our little fun trip through some really fantastic stores and I hope you'll take the time to see what other great stuff they have to offer for your glamorous bathroom makeover!
