We are big fans of farmhouse decor. Be it modern interpretations that are translated into interior works of art, or the interweaving of bits and bobs into your space, this style is timeless and cozy. And the same rings true for your bathroom. We spend so much time primping and showering (among other things) in this room that it deserves some attention! To add some style to your bathroom, here are a few farmhouse accessories that will channel the country-meets-contemporary vibes you hope to infuse into your “privy.”
In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly designated Nov. 19 as World Toilet Day to raise awareness about the human right to water and sanitation.
Light Up Some Farmhouse Candles
First and foremost, every bathroom needs candles. Because your bathroom should always smell amazing! But you have to find the right scent in the right container. Which is why we love the Good Natured Soy Jar Candle at Anthropologie. With an amber glass container topped with a cork lid, they’re the best of form and function.
Decorate With the Outdoors In Mind
A Narrow Driftwood Vase from Arhaus brings the outside in, adding an element of nature to a space that is often neglected in terms of environmental influences. Painstakingly designed to mimic worn-in driftwood, this cement piece is intricately textured and watertight so you can fill it to the brim with succulents.
Bath Time Is the Best Time
Bathtime calls for bubbles, a good book, essential oils, the aforementioned candle, and a place to put it all. Cue the teakwood Lotus Bathtub Caddy from Anthropologie with brass handles and a whitewash finish. A must-have come time to unwind, carefree. Whether you rest a glass of wine or a can of La Croix atop its surface is up to you.
Hang Them Up
Rather than hide your towels in a closet, show them off on this Teak Ladder from Crate & Barrel. Usually discarded, these branches are given a second life as a beautiful ladder that exudes natural charm. It’s sustainable and stylish!
Sir John Harington, a member of Queen Elizabeth I’s court, is credited with the invention of the modern flush toilet.
Wrap Up In Cozy, Fluffy Towels
Speaking of towels, in lieu of traditional terry cloth, opt for a waffle texture—yes, waffle! These West Elm Waffle Towels are 100 percent organic cotton and give a rich, texturally luxurious spin to your usual go tos. Lightweight and quick-drying, they also beg to be displayed.
Don’t Forget the TP
Typically stacked or stored out of sight, toilet paper can now enjoy the limelight in this Seagrass Paper Holder from Pottery Barn. Natural fibers are handwoven, offering space for three more rolls. A rattan pole further holds two more, making this optimal for smaller spaces.
Make Sure to Wash for 20 Seconds
Swoon over the Reverence Duet from Aesop, a hand wash and hand balm tag team whose formulation includes a unique, warm and woody aroma. Plus they offer up some sublime skin-softening properties. And that packaging? Those rustic, amber-hued glass bottles are oh-so farmhouse chic.
Bring In Natural Elements
If your bathroom is lacking in natural light, fear not! You can make it come alive with the right farmhouse bathroom accessories! For example, the exquisite Lace Hydrangea Bundle in an ivory shade from Pottery Barn is a stunning alternative to real (and hard to grow!) plants. Remarkably realistic, you can combine them with dried eucalyptus stems to make an accent that truly pops.
The oldest bathtub yet discovered dates back to 1,500 BC. The bathtub was designed for the Queen’s bathroom in the Palace of Knossos in Crete. It dates all the way back to the Minoan epoch.
Hang Up a Curtain
Delicate, subtle, yet beautiful, the Desi Shower Curtain from Urban Outfitters is 100 percent cotton and machine washable. Plus with subdued tufting mirrors and an interwoven chevron design, it’s understated, simple and lovely in every way.
