Yes, those are the infamous sharpied towels…..

Note about the quotes:  For the record – I did not say ‘real steamy’ – I am sure I said ‘really steamy’ or I might have even actually said ‘very steamy’- I don’t talk like that.

A Note About Wall Decals:  Rachel who wrote this piece was, I think, a bit suspicious of the decals for the bathroom….but I have to say…they have been up for over two years and while there is not a shower in this room, there have been many steamy baths, and raucous wet kid’s bathtub play sessions where they got wet.  They are showing no wear nor pealing…the stickers are really great!  — That said — I bought similar decals of birds for my daughters bedroom from Target and they didn’t stay up for 48 hours.  Thy just fell off the wall.  Not all wall decals are equal….these good bathroom stickers are from Velocity Art and Design.

There are lots of other great makeovers in the magazine and it is on newsstands now…this is the cover if you want to go pick up your own copy.

I would love to hear what you think!

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
