HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR BATHROOM INTO A SANCTUARY OF LUXURY AND QUIET
WHEN I ENTER THROUGH MY BATHROOM I WANT TO ENTER A SPACE OF SERENE TRANQUILITY.
→ By Jana Leonard, Homeware Brand Founder and Content Creator
To achieve this, I carefully curate the space by adding luxury items at key touchpoints. This way you can really choose where you want to spend your money.
My favorite items to use are:
- Hand washes and Lotions: I have opted for the Summer Vineyard Set from Cape Island. Besides having a long-lasting aroma, their bottles are refillable and recyclable and the product is plant-based.
- Candles: I love candles and choose them by color and fragrance. The more, the merrier! My favorite at the moment is my Palo Santo candle. It’s exotic and captivating.
- Bath salts: I use a lavender ‘sleep’ bath salt from Licious. Does it work? I am not sure, but I do have a great night’s rest every time I use it so…
- Body butter: I am currently using Omumbiri fragranced body butter. This rare fragrance just transports me to exotic places for a moment in my mind before my day starts!
One of my other favorite items to use is my Waffle Weave Turkish Towel from The Cotton Company. Normally I opt for a muted palette but of late, a pop of color really speaks to me and these towels are nothing short of it!
I started using Turkish Towels years ago and absolutely fell in love with them, especially for the beach. I used to opt for a fluffier towel in winter due to its warmth appeal until I found these waffle weave ones, and let me tell you, there’s no turning back. Not only is it lightweight, generously sized, and ever-so-soft, these towels are just the thing to wrap around yourself after a luxurious bath. The honeycomb weave is both breathable and super absorbent, made with OEKO TEX certified yarn. It rolls up small, making it great to take with you on any adventure.
I chose 2 different colors, pink and mustard, which really pop against my green bathroom wall. Find out more about why I chose green here.
These towels are:
- Tassel free
- 100% Turkish cotton
- Eco-friendly, lightweight, and functional
- Highly absorbent and fast-drying
- Gets softer and more absorbent with every wash
- Size: 85 cm x 160 cm
The texture adds to my bathroom and has an association with the rest of the items in the space, it just finishes off the final look I wanted for myself.
I work hard, it’s important to have twenty minutes to myself at the end of the day to rejuvenate. Although who am I kidding, it would be a miracle if I made it out of the bath in less than forty!
