Humor Bathroom

As much as I love home decor, it has a strong bent towards taking itself too seriously, and that is where we diverge. I believe every room should have some whimsy, or at least some humor in it, and thus came about the theme of Humor Bathroom (which excludes bathroom humor). I also like to flirt with cheesiness - I like the challenge of having fun in decorating while still maintaining a level of taste. Ideally, I'm going for entertainment and style. At least that's what I hope to achieve!



And so it was with great joy that in one outing I found both a tissue box holder with a giant nose on it, and a tooth shaped toothbrush holder. I presume they came from the same (awesome) household...or the thrifting gods aligned a special shopping day for me. Either way, I'm elated.



One of the best things about them, I think, is that they are white ceramic, so they are not glaringly garish. They blend into the white of the bathroom walls and fixtures, but once your eyes light upon them, you are let into my little joke. And I almost chuckle every time I reach for a tissue. It has been so great to add tiny moments of joy to the mundane activities to my life with fun accessories. I'm just going to have to make sure I don't go overboard with this!

  1. You know these adorable and hilarious bathroom items look so familiar.

    I feel like I've seen them when I was a kid in the 70s. I wonder how old they are.

    I would have bought these too. I love them. Great find.
