Want to make your bathroom or powder room a little more elegant? Whenever you're out and about at flea markets, thrift shops and grandma's attic, keep an eye out for good quality large table napkins. They make lovely hand towels, and can often be picked up cheaply, especially if there's only one or two and not a full set. I dry mine on the line to get a wonderful fresh scent (and to avoid ironing) and then roll them up and put them in an old wooden apple basket that sits in the powder room. Over time, you'll collect enough that you can change them out frequently. I love to find ones that have elaborate monograms on - because they really just look like decorative scrolls to me. And besides, someone whose name begins with an "R" is sure to come into my bathroom at some point. You could also, I suppose, embroider or stencil your own initials on them, or even tack on a piece of vintage lace or crochet work along the edges. But that's beginning to sound too much like work, and this is supposed to be about easy elegance.
