Bright, patterned towels - yay or nay?

Well I can't get enough of them. My airing cupboard is bursting at the seams and I have a long wish list of towels left in me. 

I thought I'd share some of my favourites I've seen as I've been poking around shops recently because, well, there's no better time to stock up before the relatives arrive at Christmas. Wow the world with your towel collection whilst giving your bathroom a bit of a facelift. 

Above are the beautiful

Padua Christy range in Deep Sea

blue (which I have). They come in 3 colour variations + have a nice border around them.

Something a little more fun, I saw these in John Lewis recently, it's 

SCION's range

. The hedgehogs are a personal fave. Again, nice border on each end - is it just me who loves that? It's the only way I can tell between a Primark towel and something a little more luxurious.

I also came across these sets in John Lewis, which would look quite good together for a mish mash look. The first are the

Coastal Nordic Scene towels

,  great for a seaside theme bathroom or small toilet. The second set are the

Isometric towels in Steel / Dandelion

which would look great in a spare bedroom with grey colour schemes.

Then I came across the

Tibetan bright towels

(to the far left) in Marks + Spencer which I adore. The range look like they should be rugs and have that luxurious autumnal look to them. Great styling in the photo above too, the Tibetan towel looks fantastic against the bright yellow. Not so sure on striped towels like the far right though. Striped towels aren't really my thing. Can't even give you a valid reason why ;)

And finally, these towels which are way too nice to be towels. I came across them on the

Urbanara

website. They look more like shawls or throws, don't you think?

I'm really intrigued by them. Do they even feel like towels? are they super fast drying? I really wonder. All I know is that if you're going away for a weekend somewhere and you rock up with a towel like this you'd be instantly cool in my book. 

What do you think? Are you a patterned towel lover?
