• Bathroom tubs – the good, the bad, the ugly

    I’ve been hunting for the best freestanding baths all morning and my top 10 were positively SAINTLY in comparison to these ‘loud mouths‘!

    The good …

    I adore traditional freestanding baths and I ADORE colour, so it’s no surprise that I really like this bathroom scheme. I’m not even offended that they’ve painted the metal feet.

    The bad …

    I mean, I’m all for making a bath the focal point, but when it reminds you of the end scene of Ghostbusters …? p.s I’m not sure if I want to know what’s image is tiled on that wall.

    The ugly …

    Button back chair? Elegant. Button back headboard? Classic. Button back BATH? I just don’t agree! And the drapes … oh the drapes. It’s like the set of ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’.

      This post just made me laugh out loud!! Thanks for that. Seriously… a button back bath… gonna be laughing about that all day, not to mention the drapes and the ghostbusters explosion! Brilliant.

      I actually like the buttoned bath. Though, I would rather see it in a modern setting.

      Have to say – I don’t like the buttoned back at all!! And those drapes! Way too much – would you ever actually dare to steam it up!!

      That space age tub is weird. Kinda love the one with the gold curtain over it though, but not the green curtain with it!

      I quite like the button bathtub, but everything else in that room needs to go!
