Spaliday—Take a Moment to Unwind

Unwind in your bath and celebrate spaliday | Recipe for RelaxationNeed to unwind? Imagine the bathroom of your dreams… Colored glass swirls with soothing smoothness and contrasts against rustic woodgrain. Candles and stone. Colors and softness. Creating a retreat you’ll want to escape to is easier than you thought.

Even the most basic of bathrooms can become beautiful with less work than you might think. A new mirror, a lamp, and some candleholders can go a long way towards creating an spa-like retreat.

Small touches as simple as river rocks or bamboo branches can make a big difference in the mood of your bath space. Calla lilies sitting in a Phoenician glass vase create a colorful, modern, yet soothing look that is unique and delicate. Now all that’s left to do is enjoy…

The madness of summertime is fizzling out. Vacation planning, cookouts and all the craziness that comes with warm weather is coming to a close. The kids are back at school, and it’s time for some YOU time.

Fill the bath

Watch the water run and let yourself zone out. Focus on the sound of the water and the wisps of steam it creates. Allow yourself to reach a meditative state with the help of running water.
