Holy giveaways, guys. November just doesn’t seem to want to quit until everyone on this blog walks away with something. While I wouldn’t really ever consider myself a frequent giveaway blogger, these last couple of months have seen an unusual amount of people in Internet land wanting you to have stuff for free. And even though I like to have my own fun by making you guys leave hilarious comments when these things run, I guess I didn’t think it fair to turn away free stuff on your behalf. By my logic, that seemed somehow rude – especially when you guys have patiently followed along with my nutty house stories. And especially when it’s three hundred bucks.
The folks from ModernBath.com contacted me with a simple plan: they give one of you $300 to spend on their Fresca line, and then you shop. That’s it. My kind of giveaway. It sounded like a pretty sweet deal to me, but before I agreed, I checked out some of their products to make sure I even liked any of their stuff (the idea of letting you shop at a site I wouldn’t like myself seems both dumb and disingenuous… so if their items are all too far out of my price range or I can’t see any of it in a real person’s home, I pass). So if it were me, here is what I’d probably spend the $300 on:
Sleek and simple. Since most of the guest bathroom is complete (the identical vanity/faucet/etc. are going to also be in the primary), I just need to add some finishing touches. I’ve had my eye out for bathroom accessories for a while, but haven’t really found the right set. So as you can imagine, this was my first stop when perusing the site. I liked a number of individual items in the Fresca line, but the Solido series was by far my favorite. Both of my upstairs bathrooms are relatively small, so bathroom accessories that are slim and low profile would go a long way to keeping the bathroom uncluttered (where my dirty laundry cannot).
(By the way, does anyone else think the robe hook in the lower left kind of looks like it’s giving you the middle finger? Blame my warped sense of humor, but that’s what won me over when looking at their other options. I guess I just like the idea of having everything in my house feel in some way like it’s a reflection of my personality… and snickering when guests visit would certainly be part of that equation.)
Another item that caught my eye is this Trebia faucet. I’ve never really seen anything like it, and it would look kind of neat in a contemporary-meets-rustic hallway bathroom (like this one). Now that I’ve done one of my own bathroom makeovers, I like the idea of using a single hole faucet to keep the counter as minimalist and uncluttered as possible, but adding some warm wood tones in the rest of the room would help balance the look and keep things from looking too cold.
Here’s your question: what was the funniest or weirdest thing you’ve ever seen someone decorate a bathroom with? I once visited a restroom where all of the art was graffiti and portraits of nude women hung upside down, but the most disturbing part was the old school British gas mask hung on the back of the door. Though I’m betting that’s probably a bit tame (I just know someone out there can do better than that).
I honestly can’t wait to read your answers.
