Ooh La La: The Parisian Bath

Karen Cooper

Bonjour!

When I think of Paris style, I think of elegance.

That elegance can take two forms: an elegant simplicity, like in this bath:

Or elegant glamour, like in this one:

So how can you create a Parisian retreat in your own bath?

A clawfoot tub is classic Parisian style. Whether simply finished in all white, or with an accent color on the outside, these tubs representĀ Paris to me.

Add a bathmat with a floral or trellis pattern in a rich color for an elegant look:

A new tub not in your budget? Add Parisian accessories. To me, that means black and white porcelain:

These light fixtures remind me of Paris street lights:

Glass jars with pretty soaps also add a Parisian touch:

Fantastique!

And it wouldn’t be Parisian without some bling!

Gold and glass accents add that Parisian glam.

Do you want a bitĀ of Paris in your bath? What would you add?
