~country bath inspiration~

Happy Sunday everyone!

it's so exciting to see the S U N in the great NW!

but before I go out & enjoy it.....

I thought I would share this AMAZING picture I found......


Seriously.....I love this so much I can't stand it!!!!!


I love so much about this bathroom....
the walls, the tall basket of flowers, the tattered lace in the window,
the tin ceiling, and of course the tub. 

so romantic & sweet~

I have been wanting to do this in our bathrooms for quite awhile now....

in fact, one day in the near future....you might just find a post
of mine.....'fessing up to another wild adventure.....
such as ripping out our lovely oak cabinets....and shower stall

to replace with something like this...



the bathroom adventure will likely begin with the acquisition of
a tub such as this....
preferably from craigslist....
preferably for less than $200.

If that day appears sooner rather than later...
my poor hubby will know he's in for it.


and I will also need to find a fabulous old dresser
to drop a couple sinks into....


and ideally.....(no..not ideally...I meant I will definitely have to...)
rip out the nasty linoleum that is white w/
light blue swirlies....circa 1991...gotta love it.

probably better save some of the fir flooring for the bathrooms.....



would love to find an awesome faucet or 2 like this....
and an awesome mirror to replace our builder's standby mirror.

and I know I have several little bottles to put cute
little rose blooms into...to pretty up the place....


and then maybe add a few other lovelies.....

~oh to dream~

~*~

it's too bad tubs are so heavy huh???
and it's really too bad there's so much plumbing involved....


Have a wonderful Sunday evening

&

a great start to the week!

Happy Sunday evening! Just playing around and saw these gorgeous pictures - I adore every one of them. I dream constantly of a gorgeous bathroom full of old and found luxury. I love the first picture - it's from A Bit of Velvet and a Dash of Lace by Robin Brown. It's a book about the decorating in her house - you have to get it! Her whole house is like that. Thanks for all the pretty pictures ~

Great bathroom...Wouldn't it be lovely to close your eyes and soak in such a bath even if only for a short while...

Blondie's Journal said...

Lovely baths, Shellagh. We have such similar taste and I think we are both sort of stuck with what we have!! ;-)

Shellagh, that first picture of Robin's bathroom always starts me salivating. I love everything about her style. All these images are lovely.

I've just found your blog, and what BEAUTIFUL photos you have. (Love your garden shots as well... starting to get the planting itch already!)

Now that's what I call gorgeous baths! I would take any of them and not change a thing.
Keep dreamin, and maybe someday.

I love your blog. It's so pretty and soothing! I the background on your blog and I love,love, love the name. Keeping on dreaming about that beautiful bathtub. Dreams do come true, ya know?

Faded Charm said...

A girl can dream, can't she? These are all lovely photos and I even have some of them in my "Dream" folder from when we built our house.

Also, did you get my email?

Take care,

Kathleen

Such amazing creativity!! These photos are great, and I find myself daydreaming about having a bathroom like one of those. Maybe someday, but for now the pictures are fun to look at. Thanks for sharing!!

Kristi said...

LOVE those bathrooms!!!! I may have to save a few of those (that ok?) for my "idea" file! we are building soon and I love inspiration! :) Thanks for the eye candy!

Beverly said...

I loved looking through your bath pictures. We still have to do our Master Bath. I have an old tub like that in my yard. Just convincing my sweet hubby how cute it would be is another thing. I also like the dresser idea for the sink. I know he wouldn't go for the more rustic one, but the others.....maybe. I hope you get to do yours so I can show him the possibilities.

Amazing pictures. Isn't it funny how we are drawn to bathrooms.. they just scream luxury and comfort. Love the one with the garden door in it!

Candy said...

Had to pop over and say HI and welcome to my following friends. I am so excited about your post today. I'll have to come back later to drool...more to nurture my vintage soul!

Auntie Cake said...

And when you get your bathroom that looks like those pictures, you let me know, so I can come and take a bath in them. Maybe after we do the weeding...

Hope your week is off to a great start.

And, BTW, when we built our house, I insisted on having a clawfoot tub. My builders pitched an absolute fit. We all stood out ground, and I finally won. I actually purchased a reproduction tub out of fiberglass, same look, and we didn't have to re-glaze an old tub. Meanwhile, my builders charged me a fortune to add more support beams to my new bathroom floor. Imagine their surprise when I carried my new tub in the house with one arm. It is so light, and I do love it even though it is out of fiberglass instead of cast-iron. (or whatever they are made of...)

kathi @ traybella said...

Shellagh,
Love em all. I agree with June. Love Robin's whole house but that bathroom...OH MY...I may have to stop reading you because I want to rip my whole house up! LOL Thanks for the Monday I-candy. Lisa

Karen Valentine said...

Shellagh, you always post the most inspirational rooms! I love them. You know, you got me re-doing my bedroom finally. I love the way it's turning out. I'll be posting a few preview pics soon!

Hi Shellagh - Just wanted to say thank you so much for visiting my blog, I was thrilled to get your comment:) I am even happier to have discovered your beautiful blog!!! I am planning on making over our bathroom this year, so these pics have given some fantastic ideas!! Looking forward to following you in 2010 - Tina;

Emom said...

Can't wait to see your baths when they are finished...smiles.

Pansy Cottage Girl said...

Oh those tubs are gorgeous! If I got in to soak I would never get out. They would call me the prune lady!

AuroraSuzette said...

First, if anyone can do their bathroom like that one, I know you can! I'm still in awe of your kitchen. Second, if you find a faucet like that, it's mine, honey!! Seriously, we don't live that far apart..let's look together! xx

Seagrass Interiors said...

What is not to love about a claw foot tub?? I was talked out of one when we did our bathroom and I'm completely kicking myself now! Can't wait to see a future post on your bathroom!
