What's It Wednesday #114
I decided to go Bollywood in our master bath. This way I could take advantage of all the beautiful colors and honor my husband's heritage at the same time.
This fascination for all things Indian started when I was a little girl. I received these wedding dolls from a colleague of my mother's. These dolls were brought back from India and I have been in love with them ever since. I have always said that they brought me luck...they brought me my amazing husband. They now have a place in our bathroom.
I keep these jeweled boxes on the side of the tub. They make it convenient for me to place hair pins inside.
There is nothing like a bubble bath with lavender bath salts and scented candle. My goal was to have a place of serenity.
I don't have to tell you how I feel about my elephants. These Indian elephants in silver were the perfect pair next to the tub.
My mother always told me to find a quiet place in the home to just vegetate and meditate. A place that is off limits to small children and a husband. I created this space in the water closet part of the bathroom. I have Gandhi to keep me company and grounded. A few years back, I saw Nate Berkus and he had a great idea for personal prints. He said crop a picture on the computer (I used Microsoft Word) to float in the middle of a white field (Instant Mat). I printed it out on photo paper, went to Big Lots and bought cheap frames and voila!
I recently bought my husband this antique Lassi, a traditional yogurt drink with spices, cup from Jodhpur, Rajasthan India. His toothbrush and toothpaste are held inside. Vintage and Antique Lassi cups are my newest obsession...stay tuned.
It was love at first sight when I saw this hand casted mask from India. She is perfect next to hubby's sink.
For some reason the builders decided to put a towel rack on the back of wall of the large tub. It's most inconvenient, however it was the perfect place to hang one of my saris to enhance the decor.
This Bollywood bathroom turned out to be the perfect home get-away for my husband and me.
What's your favorite get-away place in your home?
