Adding a personal touch to your decorating warms up any room. In the Tuscan bathroom, you can bring in a little personal flair by displaying souvenirs of your travels. Start with a simple Murano glass vase filled with dwarf sunflowers. Then create a special spot for your millefiori pillboxes with a decorative display, like a Ballard Designs Scrolled Shelf. Its shelves are ideal for showcasing mementos from your vacations while keeping toiletries tidy. You can even bring out your collection of spaghetti poodles.

Infuse your bath with the flavors of Italy in aromatic soaps, salts and sachets. Indulge in soothing bath products like the Olive Leaf Triple-Milled Bar Soap from Thymes. Try exotic Italian scents like pomegranate body splash and black currant bubble bath. To make your own sachets, custom-blend dried herbs like sage, rosemary, sweet bay and fennel. Once you have created your little piece of Tuscany, you can start living la dolce vita.
