Petals

January 7, 2011

I came across this photo of our bath full with petals in it. I took it during the photo shoot for Image Magazine (http://donalhickey.ie/bio/bibliography/). One of the most common questions about our house is whether we use the bath much. We look at it as a sanctuary, a special place and a treat and so we plan to spend an afternoon with the kids in it or a quiet evening by candle light soaking in it. The idea of this bath is based on how the Romans used to bathe. They would soak and float for hours in a large bath. It was social and relaxing and nothing to do with washing! (We do wash at the end!) I love to float as you can do so with out touching the walls. There is a roller blind for privacy but usually the window fogs up so no one can see in. There is a great view of the Dublin mountains and the Poolbeg lighthouses.
