He is the happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I'm participating in Kelly's "Show Us Where You Live Friday." This week's theme is bathrooms. With the rest of my house being small, you can guest my one bathroom is too!

It really is a very nice bathroom but it has taught me first hand that I will never purchase a home with just one bathroom. Even a bath and a half has to be better!

View from the door. Well, that's it! Vanity and toilet on the left, shower/tub on the right. To make it even more tight, the stacked washer/dryer is in a closet on the right too!

I love the old heat/AC registers throughout the house. Unfortunately this one doesn't work so in the winter it is really cold (we have a space heater) and in the summer it's rather stuffy.

The shelf and cabinet above the toilet is very useful for storage. I keep my perfume as well as my grandfather's mint julep cups with q-tips and cotton pads. The picture is Nick, about age 3, just out of the tub wrapped in a towel.

This piece of a bureau was my mom's. I love the look of it and stores stuff great in the drawers and hand towels on top.

I too only have 1 bathroom and most of the time it's ok, but sometimes it's not! I can't wait til we get the bathroom in the basement redone. I love the little touches you have like the pic of Nick in a towel and your mothers thingy with drawers.
So cute!

I love your bathroom. It's so cute and cozy. Your grandfather's mint julep cups are a sweet, sentimental touch. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier today and for your comment.

Thanks for your comment. You have such great storage ideas for your space. The towel basket and vintage drawer storage works so well for function and design.

I love the look of your bathroom. I can imagine how hard it is to just have one, but you have done a great job decorating it!!
