Think outside the bottle with this accordion-style rack that's typically used to store wine or bottles of Pellegrino. A wine rack in the bathroom is a clever way to keep a few towels right at hand. It's a perfect solution for a guest bathroom, so friends don't need to hunt down a clean hand towel. Simply roll up towels and place bath towels on top and smaller hand towels and washcloths in the spaces below. Design by Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien. Photography by Charlotte Jenks Lewis
Though bathroom towel racks will probably never be replaced thanks to their drying prowess, towel hooks are currently giving them a run for their money. Hooks add a casual vibe to a bathroom that their stiff counterparts can’t match. The accordion style allows you to have multiple hooks with only a couple holes in the wall, which is a major win in my book.
Splurge on thick, 100 percent cotton bath towels, washcloths and hand towels for your guests. A great tip is to buy guest towels in a color different from your regular towels so you'll always have the "good" towels ready for overnight guests. These guest towels have been livened up with addition of colorful bands of ribbon the help dress up the bathroom. (And they color coordinate with the rubber duckies!)

Bring a traditional bath into the 21st century, no time machine necessary. A coat of burnt orange paint instantly updates this bath's classic woodwork, fixtures and marble vanity, while the modern artwork and whimsical bust-turned-towel rack further bridge the "then and now."
