Ahh – the bath

Relaxing, indulgent, soothing. In bathrooms simple and uncomplicated,

old-world ornate and Bohemian,

or vintage elegant,

the simple act of bathing can easily be transformed into a rich and tranquil experience.

A hot fragrant bath can relax the muscles, ease the day’s tensions, and bring about a sense of wellness.

By adding a few bath salts, lighting a candle (or using a nightlight), and using your favorite soap and bath towels,

the ordinary can become an indulgence.

There’s a certain pleasure to be found in a daytime bath, with sunlight filling the bathroom.

There’s another pleasure with a bath at end of day, in preparation for nighttime and sleep.

On these cold winter days and nights, enjoy the soothing experience of a hot, fragrant bath. It will both relax and recharge you, and increase your sense of well-being.

A Sense of Well-Being

January is a good time to reset the tone for your health and happiness,

to create an atmosphere that brings peace and pleasure into your life. A relaxing soak in a hot springs would be wonderful — but a home spa can be just as indulgent and therapeutic.

Small touches — flickering candles, evocative scents, soft music — can nourish your spirit with beauty and tranquility,

and create an overall sense of well-being.

Sometimes it’s the small things that best bring about that shift in tone — a fragrant cup of tea, a great book and a good reading chair,

a walk outside on a snowy January day,

or beneath the magic of the night sky.
