When Serena & Lily asked me to review one of their products I couldn’t have been more excited. Their line is sophisticated, elegant and downright classy – a few things I aspire to be. Andy and I have been working hard to get our home’s original black and white tiled bathroom restored and pretty again and although I’m not ready to do a full reveal yet, I want to show you some details.
I’ve been shopping around for accents to go with our newly refreshed bathroom so this little partnership was perfectly timed. I chose the Serena & Lily Fouta Bath Collection as a modern yet timeless complement to this classic room. Our new set of hand towels and bath towels in Dove Grey pair beautifully with our freshly painted blush walls.
Pink tones and gray tones are a classic combination and work well with the white and black tile accents. The towels are bright white with wide light gray stripes and thin, darker gray stripes. The towels have a soft woven cotton front with a terry backing to give the elegant look of a Turkish towel with the absorbency and feel of a terry towel. These really feel so soft on the hands and are lovely to use.
Although we have an ensuite bathroom in our main bedroom, I prefer this bathroom with its feminine vibe and perfect sunlight. Whenever we have guests, I give them full use of this room and try to make it as tidy and useful as possible. With no available storage to speak of, I added an IKEA MOLGER cart to hold guest towels, a few essentials and some of my skincare favorites.
The bath towels even look pretty hanging to dry. Although the towels are gray with a bright white base, the white works well with our old tiles and doesn’t make them look dingy in comparison.
Here’s a closer look at the front and back layers of the towel. Because these towels are comprised of two layers vs. the typical single layer, they require just a little extra futzing while folding to make them look crisp. I love these as summer towels because they are soft and light and thus dry quickly compared to our everyday thicker towels. The color is just as expected and the fabric and stitching are of excellent quality. The extra touch of class these towels add is exactly what the room needed.
I can’t wait to show you the full reveal of this room!
Can you share your wall color? I’d love to test it out for my bathroom. Thank you!
Hi! The paint color is Behr Marquee Cockleshell. Hope that helps!
Can you please tell me where you got the canisters on top of the cart and the shower curtain. I also would love the source on the faucet. I’m thinking about voting this for my guest bath. Thanks!! Just dazzling!
Hi Brandi! The canisters are the Ventura White Ceramic Canisters from CB2. The shower curtain is an old design from West Elm and the faucet came with the house so I’m not sure of a source for that, unfortunately!
I love how you used the Molger. Unfortunately there’s no IKEA near me. What’s the height of available space on the rack holding the towel set? I want to fit a terrarium there. Thanks!!
