watercolor tea towels

by Grace Bonney

I’ve always had a soft spot for watercolor anything,┬ámostly because when I was an art major in college, I was terrible with watercolors. The things I can’t do well always intrigue me the most, so whenever I see a beautiful, well-executed watercolor detail, I catch myself “ooohh”-ing out loud. These beautiful tea towels at Terrain ($28) were inspired by original paintings by Betsy Olmstead. Each is printed with eco-friendly dyes onto cotton towels that measure roughly 21″ x 14″ and are machine washable. After years of super bold graphic towels, I’m ready to embrace something a little softer, so this might go on my holiday wishlist. Until then, I’ll continue drooling over them here and here. xo, grace
