A Pretty Update To Your Bathroom

When it comes to décor, I think that no area of the home should go unacknowledged – and that includes your shower. A while back I did a post on creating a desirable shower space, and one of my tips was to transfer all beauty products into beautiful glass bottles to evoke simplicity and steer away from the cluttered look of commercialized product bottles. Today I want to take that concept one step further.

Glass bottles

I love the idea of placing flowers in these bottles – whether those flowers are silk, plastic, dried, or fresh. This will help create a natural, upscale vibe in your shower space, contributing to an overall positive experience! There are lots of faux flowers that look incredibly real, and they’re available at most craft stores.

Flowers on white, sunlight

As a matter of fact, there’s no reason to stop here. Why not transfer your hand soaps and dishwasher detergent to pretty glass bottles and add a flower or two? I know exactly what I’m doing when I get home this evening – and I think you should do the same. :)

Flowers in soap dispensers

Please note: I’m unsure how long a fresh flower would last when submerged in a liquid like shampoo or hand soap, but I’d imagine that it would also give a little something extra to the scent!

These are gorgeous! Are the flowers in your photos faux or real? I am copying you the second I get home.

fp brigette -August 22, 2013, 9:29AM

Meghan – I used both! The eucalyptus and dried brown flowers are real, and the others are fake :) Just a warning, though – some real flowers may alter the color of your shampoo/soap.

That looks stunning! So wanna try this…where did you find those pretty pump bottles?

Kimmy -August 22, 2013, 9:59AM

I love this, looks so much better than those ugly bottles. Its such a great idea :)

fp brigette -August 22, 2013, 10:09AM

Eve – I got them from Target! :)

I’m just so glad that someone likes glass bottles as much as I do! I am dorm living this year, and definitely storing my stuff in glass bottles! Lovely suggestion!

Hi! I just wanted to ask how do you maintain the water: do you add anything or just change it every two days? thanks!

Natalie -August 22, 2013, 3:54PM

Brigette – you made it on to BuzzFeed with your cool beauty hacks. Not sure if you already know know but here you go (look at the end). Stumbled upon this and had to share.

fp brigette -August 22, 2013, 4:01PM

Hahaa! Thanks so much for letting me know, Natalie!!!

fp brigette -August 22, 2013, 4:05PM

Mila – I used shampoo and soap in these bottles, so I won’t be changing it, but if you wanted to do this with water instead, I’d imagine changing it every few days would be fine! :)

What’s the plant in the bottle of wine? (or whats look like)

Ella -August 22, 2013, 8:02PM

Wow, these are really lovely! Cosmetic bottles are usually so ugly. I need to try this. Thanks! :)

Tania -August 22, 2013, 8:57PM

I need to know where that glass pump bottle is from! I’ve seen it before in someone’s bathroom and have been looking for one since!!

fp brigette -August 23, 2013, 10:11AM

Kathleen – I believe it’s a type of ivy. :)

fp brigette -August 23, 2013, 10:11AM

Tania – it’s from Target! :)

Bee -August 23, 2013, 11:06AM

This is actually really clever and pretty, too!

Great and simple idea. Id like to repost this on

Katerina -January 6, 2014, 6:56AM

Beautiful, glass and fresh flowers always more luxurious. The only problem is that glass is not that safe to use in the bathroom.

Kaylyn -May 21, 2014, 8:30PM

Wow I’m in love with the wood carved mirror! Where did you get it ??? I’ve been looking for one for a while now with no luck:-(
