So, initially, I thought that I really wanted to use a blue and white porcelain garden stool for my bench in the bathroom. Interesting in their pattern, they're a perennial favorite in homes of the north east, and with the white subway tile I have in my tub/shower, it took me back to our vacation in Newport. But after some thought I decided the garden stool, while beautiful, lacked softness - something the room is missing with it's tile, geometric wall paneling, and porcelain console sink. So, I'm opting for something a bit more substantial, with a padded top which will be upholstered.
Something similar to this:
Or perhaps something a bit more like this:
Either way, something with an open leg and upholstered seat. Keep in mind that we'll be adding a brushed nickel nailhead trim to whichever fabric we choose. Kinda like this:
Here's where you come in! I'm not sure what fabric I should use for the bench. my initial thought was linen, but then I realized this is actually a piece that could take a loud fabric, something with more personality. So, I leave it up to you!
