It’s been quite a year. And for those of us who have been working from home, between zoom school and zoom meeting, home can feel less like the peaceful sanctuary we hope it to be and more like an ongoing jumble of chores. 
But there's one place that can still serve as an escape- the bathroom! With a few small tweaks, it can turn into the perfect place to indulge in some much needed self care, where you can just take a deep breath and relax, even if it’s just for a few stolen moments. 
I asked Bettina Brent, one of my all time favorite home decor influencers, for her best bathroom styling tips (because hers is all my #bathroomgoals wrapped in one).
Here’s what she had to say, and I hope they help you find those moments of calm happiness, like they did for me.

1. Setting the mood
Here’s how Bettina created that perfect spa feel: “Over the bath I use a piece of timber with items I would need for a bath - glass of water (or wine) a book, a dish with some bath salts - I like to make my own using calming essential oils. I love my two trailing philodendrons in my Loop Living hanging planters for a peaceful jungle feel. I love the look of lots of candles, I use LED flameless ones in the bathroom”.

2. Group items together to avoid clutter
According to Bettina, finding solutions for the smaller items can go a long way. “I don’t like a lot of clutter, so I group a few items on a tray (handwash, cream, small bowl for bits, maybe a nail or body brush) and a small planter”.

3. Keep the shower Minimal
As for the shower, Bettina says she likes “keeping the shower minimal with matching hair and body products, and a sponge. And of course, always a plant hanging or in the corner!”

4. When practical meets aesthetics 
And if you're wondering where to place your towels, Bettina says she likes “using beautiful organic feeling towels draped over a stool, ladder or as in my ensuite over a Loop Living hook!”

5. Propagating
Last but not least, Bettina finds that “The bathroom is the perfect place for propagating- I have little cuttings of my favorite pothos on the window sill.” And honestly, that’s our favorite tip of all. 

What do you think, ready to create some home spa magic?
