Wit and Whimsy: Iris's Bath from The Holiday

One of Shelley's favorite movies is The Holiday.  I can't tell you how many times we've watched it.  Probably as many times as we've seen Practical Magic.  ;P  I've been dreaming lately of Iris's quirky bath in her cute Surrey cottage.


Sadly, this isn't a real bathroom.  Julia @ Hooked on Houses wrote a great post about the set from The Holiday.


Still, if I wanted a fantasy soak in a light-filled bath with lavender scented bath salts, I'd pick this bath!

Until next time...

Blessings!

  1. We are so alike...those two movies are on my yearly "must see" list! Classics. And I would love to have a bath like this although the light fixture about the tub makes me a little freakish! lol!

  3. I love that movie but cry like a baby every time I watch it and have to pick a good day if I wanna watch and get sad.
    When I was in Chicago, my sisters friends art space/apartment was fitting with a really cool bathroom very similar to this setting. As you soaked in a vintage tub the soothing sounds of the train passing by out the window. It was very movie set like and fit perfect in an artsy living space.
    Hope you are feeling better

  5. You and I are channeling the same feeling! Today I am working with this image http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Alfred_Stevens_Le_Bain.jpg
    isn't it gorgious! Looks like it would fit right into your dream soak...and to think I have some lavender and lemon bath salts upstairs... to bad my bathroom isn't nearly as lovely.

    Have a wonderful day
