The First Thing You See

One thing I always try to keep in mind while decorating is the initial impression upon entering a room. 

I was enthused at the thought of our vintage inspired hook being one of the focal points of the bathroom.  The lines provide a visual interest all on their own.

But when those lines are covered up with a heap of hanging damp towels?  Not so much. 

The hook looks much happier in its new home here:

I decided that bath towels will hang on the back of the door instead.  With something like this:

Which would still allow some of the hooks to show, since there are so many of them.

And on the wall, I played switcheroo with our enameled container.  It used to be a towel holder.

but now serves as a sweet little flower box instead.

A much improved first impression.

I’m thinking a new subdued look for fall and winter is in order, but for now we’re enjoying the summery burst of colors.
