I am venturing into uncharted territory today for Let's go Moerkabout. It's my first Guest Blog Post. Hope you enjoy it. Lets welcome Jen....................

Hiya! I'm Jenn and I write for Arcadian Lighting, which is an e-commerce website that follows the top lighting ideas and trends from across the globe. I've been writing about home decor and lighting fixtures for more than a decade, and one of the best ways to stay on top of the latest and greatest is to visit some of the great interior design blogs out there, one of which is Let's Go Moerkabout. The posts are always beautiful and I feel privileged to be writing here today - thank you!

There are a few simple ingredients to a stylish bathroom: a pretty colour palette, a great light fixture, a beautiful vanity, and a fabulous clawfoot tubs. Sleek and stately, these tubs of yesteryear have never lost their luxurious touch and can truly make a bathroom instantly glamorized. Here are eight clawfoot tubs you can't resist.

1 Lovely lavender

What a refreshing colour for a clawfoot tub you can't resist - the sunshiny yellow looks softer accented with a white ruffled shower curtain. 3 Plush and purple

I think the turquoise is my favourite, followed by the black one with the chippy doors.


  1. Hi Deb,

    I have to agree with you. I think the turqouise is beautiful and I could most certainly live with number 6 buttery tones too.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Hi Deb,

    So true re the lighting.... It can make or break a room.

    Turquoise is dreamy.

    We have a claw bath in our ensuite and we love it, so relaxing. I remember when our builders moved it in there from the front verandah - it took 6 men to
    carry it.
