A Great Idea

Serena & Lily

Serena & Lily posted this outdoor shower on Instagram featuring their Capri Fouta Beach Towel and a blue and white garden stool.

We have all seen indoor bathrooms with a Chinese garden stool used as a perch for towels or toiletries. What I found interesting was the idea of using a garden stool inside the shower. I personally hate those tacky shower caddies/organizers. This would be a great alternative. Many newer showers have generous niches for shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and such, but lots of showers just have a useless soap dish. I haven't used bar soap in decades.

I even found some examples.

I am definitely doing this in my walk-in showers. I love this idea!


  1. Been thinking about these for mine, too. Haven't pulled the trigger yet, though, wondering if my rather small clawfoot shower is big enough.

  2. Love the filigree garden stool and what a great price!

  3. Love the flamingo stool and wish I had a place for it.

  4. Love that Serena & Lily stool but haven't been able to find it on their website yet. I'm keeping an eye out for it...

    1. I said that the towel is Serena & Lily, not the garden stool.

    2. Ahhh. A Google Image search located the garden stool at Decor Pad and Anthropology - mystery solved!!
