While on a recent visit to an occupied home, I was discussing the possibility of supplementing furniture and accents with the owners. The opportunity was becoming less desirable by the moment as the owners kept telling me about their dog, who was probably born before Nixon resigned, and how he continues to soil any thing he is not familiar with... The thought of provided furnishings for the home was not appealing. Luckily, they primarily needed accents.
Now, what does this have to do with my mom? When discussing accenting the Master Bath, I mentioned adding matching towels. And I found myself saying, "These towels would be decorator towels, and not for your daily use..."
Wait a minute: I just recommended to some one that they put towels in their bath room and not use them! I can vividly remember rolling my eyes at my mother when she was complaining that "we kids" were using her towels in the bath room... And I can remember thinking, "Who puts towels in the bath room that aren't to be used?"
Fast forward thirty... er... twenty, yeah - twenty years, and here I am making the same comment. OK - so may be Mom was right about this one. A Master Bath definitely needs fresh towels. And in a +$300k condo, they should coordinate with the bath accessories. Which are also a must have! Plastic cups from a Longhorns football game are not acceptable! How many college grads are buying expensive condos? Not many...
The owners decided to get their own towels, so I am OK with that. They coordinated them well with their bath accessories. All in all, they did a tasteful job. Now if I could only convince them to hide their robes in the bath closet, and drop their morning towels in the dryer on the way out of the home in the morning...
