One antique guest towel with an elaborate single letter monogram hangs on a vintage towel bar in my bath. It is layered over the Waterworks cream Gotham bath towels. The bath looks naked when it is being laundered.
I was inspired to write this post after seeing Betty Lou Phillips’ new book, French Impressions. She loves words and monograms and has embroidered them on towels, embedded them in mosaic floors and painted them on her grandchildren’s lockers.
