Feathers & Eggs

I totally misunderstood Nester yesterday when she said she was going to have a Mr. Linky Party and anyone who has purchased or won prints from L. Herbert Designs could post about it and link up. I was checking out the few links and admiring how others have used her beautiful prints and then I discovered that I do not actually have to HAVE the prints yet. One of the three qualifications was to post about where you would put them should you win some or purchase some art prints. Ohhhhhhh, now I understand.

A few months ago Nester inspired me to take a few minutes and make my master bathroom a place I would love. Well, I did it and it worked. I love my bathroom now. So have a few guests that have come to stay here recently.

I am slowly (unfortunately not in 10 minutes) working on my downstairs bathroom using that same inspiration from Nester. I took a photograph this morning of the wall I would love to display a coordinating set of L. Herbert Designs Prints.

See that plain blank wall to the left? That is right where I would love to hang the art prints. I am going for a cozy cottage look in this bathroom. I have a pretty berry wreath on the wall (far right) and a pretty eggs & nest framed art piece on the other wall with words from an Emily Dickinson poem. I bought that at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. I placed a pretty lamp on the counter. I think the L. Herbert Prints would go great in here! This is a very small bathroom so I had to stand in the bathtub to take this photograph!

Be Inspired! -Karol :0)

I love the mental image of you standing in the tub to get just the right shot! That definitely brings some "perspective" to how small the room is! Good luck on winning! Maybe we can arm wrestle for it!! ; )

I think that the prints would go really great in your bathroom as well!

Thanks for linking up and entering the giveaway. :-)

I agree, a set of prints would look fabulous there.

Thanks so much for featuring my bookplates in your last post!

You are right, that's a perfect spot, good luck! I love what you've done in the bathroom so far.

I LOVE the picture you have hanging already! I have looked and looked at that when at Hobby Lobby. Someday it will come home with me!

The Nester said...

Your bathrooms look better than my living room.

But yes, they would look lovely in there!

I look at the rendering of my house that you so menticulasly or however you spell it, slaved over, every day and LOVE it more all the time!

Thank you!

just looking at your books, do you know I'd never heard of Rachel Ashwell until a few weeks ago?! And of course, now I find out about the whole Shabby Chic thing and how they are or have been closing. I immediately went to Amazon and ordered three of her books. Now I realise that her 'shabby chic' look is naturally in my bones, and it's what I've been working on since the start of this year. I had no idea. It must be a British thing! I can't believe I'd never heard of her, she's just not mentioned over here which I think is a crime!
I'd read people talk about 'shabby chic' but assumed it was a look rather than a shop that they were talking about. How like me to find something a little too late. Still, the books are a treasure, and I am loving them. :O)

Hope you are well and things are nicely chugging along for you.

Your improvements look great, can't wait to see the final room.

You're right. The prints would definitely be at home in your bathroom.
Great re-do.

SoBella Creations said...

I remember your bathroom makeover and thought you did a fantastic job.

I think the prints would look lovely in the spot you have chosen.

stopped at HSHP today, and love the revamp. Looks gorgeous and I wanted to say so.

Hope you are well. :O) xxx
