Returning home from a visit to a lovely hotel doesn’t bode well for my view of our house. When I’m here the furnishings seem all right. We have furniture to sit on, plumbing that works and clothes that are clean. Yes, the furniture will have some animal hair on it (thanks to our huge chocolate lab Benny and our two Russian Blue cats, Maddy and Phoebe) but our little house if full of love and we go about our days grateful for what we have. But when I get the chance to stay in a hotel my opinions upon returning to our little house are ‘Everything is old and dirty! We need some updates pronto!’
Rob and I were able to stay in a beautiful hotel that had relaxing colors, lovely linens and fantastic waterworks. I could have stayed in that shower all morning! I know that we could create a spa-like atmosphere in our own home if we updated the bathroom with just a few pieces. I’m not talking a major remodel, just some switches of shower heads, towel racks and bathroom accessories.
Considering how much time we spend in our home, I feel we should make it as nice as possible. Now, I wonder if I could talk Rob into a heated towel rack?
