Use wooden trays and scatter fresh petals in the tub.

Pamper and reward yourself! Place luxurious bath gels and body scrubs in wooden trays by the tub or the shower. Scatter fresh petals in the tub for a deluxe bath (no need for roses here-even fresh hibiscus or kalachuchi blooms from the backyard will do). Burn a soothing aromatherapy candle while you soak in the tub.

Add indoor plants.

Make your own indoor oasis. Bring the outdoors into your home by placing shade-friendly plants like philodendron and rhapis in decorative pots and place in the corners of your bathroom where soap cannot reach them.

Use softer lighting.

Trade harsh fluorescent lights with soft lights. Install lamps for a softer lighting alternative.

Be creative and go rustic.

Hang your towels on a rustic ladder instead of typical towel racks. You may visit Kultura Filipino or Crossings Department Store to source for similar ladders.

Use earthenware.

Complete your bathroom's all-natural look. Use a clay banga and tabo (available at most landscaping and garden stores) instead of the usual plastic basin and dipper.

Go for a pebble washout finish.

You don't have to bring in sand from the beach just to get that resort feeltry a pebble washout finish in a decorative, non-wet area of the bathroom.
