Turkish Towels; styling my bathroom and home

I have never given much thought to styling my bathroom… after spending many years renting in Sydney, I’ve been pretty much stuck with whatever bathroom came with my abode, and hanging my overused (and never big enough) k-mart towels by the shower ready for me to step out without even thinking…

Until I was introduced to the turkish towel, or to be more specific a turkish bath towel. A turkish bath towel is pretty much the same as a normal turkish towel; it’s lightweight (whilst the thicker nature of the turkish bath towels make them feel more luxurious), it dries quickly (which is a necessity given the amount of times I’m in and out of the shower keeping up with a busy social calendar and if I’m feeling lucky, gym timetable!) and doesn’t take up much space.

What I didn’t count on is how these stylish, colourful turkish towels could actually transform my bathroom from dull and standard (I am surrounded by plain white tiles in every direction) to a bright and contemporary space. I didn’t do this with one towel of course… I have a colourful combination of towels (a large turkish towel for the body, one for my hair) and hand towels, in funky patterns that really stand out against the plain background and have even inspired my new colourful scented candles around my tub!

So I was thinking; if a few stylish turkish bath towels and hand towels can brighten up my bathroom and introduce a sense of style, where else could they perk up my home? Aside from the turkish beach towel found hanging in the sun during summer… which is when it hit me. Turkish towels, particularly the larger jumbo kind, make fantastic picnic blankets, so why wouldn’t they make a lovely throw for my lounge and my favourite recliner chair? Well I’ll let you in on a little secret… they did! And now I couldn’t imagine my living room without that splash of style and colour, hiding the more worn parts of my lounge (and keeping my sofa smelling fresh as I can easily and quickly wash and dry my new accessories!). The only problem I’m having now is stopping myself from changing my colour scheme every month as there’s too many choices of contemporary designs and colours… someone help me…
