Oh wait…that was Strawberry Fields Forever right? No matter, I think it works beautifully for Marcia’s bath!
I absolutely love my Lavender Dreams curtains! They complement my lavender tiled bathroom, which incorporates the reproductions of the Minoan frescoes I brought back from Knossos – where the summer fields are purple with lavender! With some lavender scented oil behind the potted plants and in the bathwater, my baths have become a Lavender Dream indeed! Everyone who visits has complemented me – and I refer all of them to your website!
I love how Marica has so completely embraced the lavender flower in her bath! Dried lavender sprigs hanging off the mirror, a lavender plant on the counter, lavender essential oils and perfumes….sounds like heaven to me. Gorgeous purple tiles accented by the pretty lavender tiebacks, purple and ivory mosaic flooring – all come together to create a soothing retreat that is pretty and feminine, where your troubles and worries will dissipate as soon as you walk in.
Our Lavender Dreams print captures the sublime quality of a relaxed summer in the French countryside where the very air is redolent with the perfume of this incredible flower!
I was curious about Minoans and Knossos, and a little googling revealed that the Minoan Civilization arose on the island of Crete and flourished from approximately the 27th century BC to the 15th century BC. Knossos is is the largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete and considered as Europe’s oldest city.
Some of the color conventions of Egyptian architectural paintings were adopted by the Minoans. They were one of the earliest cultures to paint natural landscapes without any humans present in the scene; such was their admiration of nature. Animals, including dolphins (like you see in Marcia’s frescoes), were also commonly portrayed and the frescoes were often framed with decorative borders of geometric designs (spirals, diagonals, rosettes, and ‘maze’ patterns).
Don’t you just love learning these things?
Marica – thank you for your testimonial. Here’s to many pleasant hours of Lavender Dreaming in your lovely bath!
