I received sample products to review
When it comes to home decor, sometimes the smallest things can make the biggest impact. Softsoap recently sent me samples of their new Decor Collection liquid hand soap line and challenged me to dress up my sink with them. The Decor Collection line comes in three scents -- Peony & Plum, Orchid Petals & Mint Water, and Wild Basil & Lime. Each one smells heavenly, and each one is packaged in beautiful decorative bottles so you don't need to transfer the soap to another container.
I decided to use the new Softsoap Decor Collection to freshen up the look of our downstairs bathroom. Usually, the countertop is a mess. The photo on the left shows the state of our bathroom on a good day -- a red floral display (that clashes with the bathroom's color scheme!) that I added one Christmas three or four years ago and never bothered to remove, ugly plastic liquid soap dispenser (because I can't be bothered to pour the liquid soap into a nicer looking container), two soap dishes (we never use solid soap anymore so I have no idea why they are on the countertop), nail files and other junk that the kids use and leave in their place. This SoftSoap challenge couldn't have come at a better time!
The first thing I did was replace the red accent piece with a blue-green one. Our sink is lined with decorative tiles that have a feather motif, so I put two peacock feathers in a small stem vase. Then, I cleaned up the random items on the countertop -- put the nail files and hair gel in a drawer, put the glass bowl back in the kitchen, got rid of the soap dishes. I also replaced the hand towel with a fresh one in a mint green color. I added a scented candle and a bottle of Softsoap Decor Collection, and in just five minutes our bathroom looked cleaner and prettier.
The Softsoap Decor Collection really does enhance our bathroom decor! The bottle has a simple, clean look, and you can select which soap you use based whether you want the soap color (green, blue, or lavender) to blend or stand out with your bathroom's color scheme. Of course, you can also select the soap based on which scent you love the most! My personal favorite is the Wild Basil and Lime, which smells heavenly and happens to blend really well with the green accents on our decorative tiles. By the way, I love how the shiny silver accents in the label and the pump top go so well with the chrome finish of our taps and towel bars. If you must have items like lotions or creams on the countertop, just line them up for a nice, neat look.
To make your countertop look even more organized, you can place loose items in a basket. This setup will look so nice for our guests the next time we have someone spend the night!
Softsoap's new Decor Collection liquid hand soap line is available at Target, Walmart, CVS, Rite Aid, and large Food stores for a suggested retail price of $2.49 for a 10 fl.oz. bottle. It's amazing what a $2.49 bottle of soap can do to inspire you to beautify your bathroom sink!
