Since we are renovating one soon, I am currently obsessed with all things bathroom. I don't know, you may have noticed. In honor of this sledgehammer I'm holding, I present a roundup of bathroom-related items that are over $500, and some equally delightful ones that are under $500. Enjoy!

In our current bathroom, there are three hooks in a row on one wall, and I always love seeing towels there. So I am going to keep the hooks, and decorate them with these Turkish bath towels. The prices for these are so wildly variable that I do not understand what it all MEANS. Anyway, I love the low version, and that particular shop has a million different choices. Go forth! Get your hammam on! (Is that offensive? Was I just accidentally racist, y'all?)

High: Turkish Hammam Towel, L'Aviva Home. $65. / Low: Turkish Bath Towel, Bath Style. $24.50.

I would love to use these as sconces on either side of a bathroom mirror. Someday, some client will let me. Will it be YOU?

High: Signal 2-Arm Sconce, Jielde. $417. / Low: Atelier Swing-Arm Sconce, Restoration Hardware. $189-$239.

Mirrors! Every bathroom needs one. Or two. Or thirteen, I don't know your life.

I have been scouring the internet daily for an antique gilded mirror -- and I found a lovely, inexpensive (though not antique) option at Pottery Barn, of all places. I will probably get it, and then both of the bathrooms at Chao Camp can boast PB mirrors. A worthy accomplishment, to be sure.

High: Antique French Gilt Mirror, 1st Dibs. Contact dealer for price. (This is code for:"You cannot afford this mirror.") / Low: Gilded Laurel Mirror, Pottery Barn. $149.99.

Y'all know I love myself some Leontine Linens, and I will probably soon visit their adorable shop on Magazine St. in New Orleans to order one of these hand towels. But! If you do not have this option, and/or are counting pennies, I think these linen hemstitched towels (From Pottery Barn! In a set of 2!) are a perfect substitute.

High: Ivory Terry Applique Towel, Leontine Linens. $75. / Low: Linen Hemstitch Applique Guest Towels, Pottery Barn. $29.00

Happy weekend, everyone! Bathroom demolition begins in the morning! So say we all!
