There is one interesting fact about bathrooms: It is one of the most important rooms in our home (unless you are not very fond of personal hygiene) and it's quite often the least considered for interior styling and decoration projects (the exception proves the rule). So I wondered: How happy is your bathroom?
But let me be honest with you first: My bathroom is not very happy because of one big issue - it is tiny and without a window. Hence no natural light. Hence me not happy. Hence no pictures of it. Anyways, I try to add a dash of happiness by injecting some colours in it. Currently the dominant colours in my bathroom are various shades of blue, turquoise, white, yellow. I always thought I just need a zesty pop of orange to sort of meet my blog's bunting colours. And sometimes people seem to read my mind.
Earlier this year I met the folks of one of the world's leading premium brands for bathroom fittings, Grohe, at the imm design fair in Cologne. When they approached me a few weeks ago and asked whether I'd like to convince myself of their great bathroom shower heads, I had two thoughts in mind: First, my old shower head is totally blocked with limescale. Second, I know a very pretty orange shower head by Grohe. A few days later I added a bit more of happiness to my bathroom as well as the desired pop of orange. Hello Rainshower Icon!
For the past six years I've lived a poor shower life with cheap shower heads. When I showered the very first time with the Rainshower Icon it was like revelation! I felt like under one of those amazing showers you find in good hotels and couldn't believe this was all the time just out there but I'd never paid due attention to the fittings for my bathroom. Well, lesson learned! It is not only an incredibly good shower experience, it also looks oh so happy and cool! What's not to love about it?
How do you like my new happy shower head?
The shower head was kindly sponsored by Grohe. Thank you!
