No, I actually think my love of French bathrooms may have started with...
Oh, the ceiling...the molding...the walls...the elegance!
Or, maybe it was this more casual (delicious) Country French bath...
I do believe that was it!!!
I love French style bathrooms and tubs. So I was all excited when friends called
last week to invite me to dinner and tell me about their new house. During the
conversation they mentioned redoing the master bath and asked if I had any ideas
for a “different” kind of bathroom. Oh yes!!!
Well, as I was dreaming of suggesting a French style bath they informed me their
new house was really a second home up in mountains of California. They explained
it is a three level very contemporary home nestled in the pines. It sounds beautiful,
but...definitely not French. My friend’s husband explained he wants something quite
rustic (he actually said “rough” but I interpreted that to mean “rustic”!) that would
fit in with the idea of being up in the trees. I asked if he had considered a wooden
tub. He, of course, thought I was joking and had a good laugh. Little did he know
I wasquite serious.
So, a few days later I emailed pictures of wonderful wooden bathtubs to him. He’s
no longer laughing at me! He is over the moon in love with the idea of a wooden tub.
Here are some of the pictures I sent to him.
Now, I just can’t seem to let the “French bathtub” thing go, so I included a picture of
this French Bateau. I think it would also work in any kind of a rustic bathroom, don’t
I’m pretty sure I know which bathtub he is going to go with. But, I still haven't
figured out how I got involved with finding wooden bathtubs!
Is there a tub that you especially like?
