Bathroom inspiration – boutique chic!

September 6, 2010

Did I ever show you the beautiful bathroom I saw at this year’s Ideal Home Show? I’m not sure I could get away with it in my ‘the size of a pea’ bathroom, but I love how smart and sophisticated it is… one day!

Here’s how to get the look…

1) Stick to classic monochrome but add warmth with plenty of cream – and keep the use of black to a minimum, like the black blind tapes and black-edged tiles shown here.

2) Mix period and modern pieces such as elaborate French-style furniture and a contemporary shower.

3) Splash out on high-shine wallpaper to add the wow-factor to your bathroom.

4) Cheat the eye with vinyl flooing instead of real limestone – spend the rest on swanky bath products!

5) Introduce accessories you wouldn’t think to see in the bathroom, such as a vintage-style cakestand for displaying pretty soaps and wine goblets for bath salts.

This is probably my favourite idea, but click on the image to see if any of the others take your fancy!

Glam bathroom chandelier

April 28, 2010

This has got to be the most co-ordinated bathroom I have ever seen, I mean how often do you see a bathroom where the lighting, walls, bathlinen AND bathroom flooring match perfectly? I’d feel compelled to wear only navy and white just to see how invisible I’d be. This bathroom from Homes & Gardens is way to formal for my taste, but I am obsessed with bathroom chandeliers at the moment … and I’d never say no to an oversized tub.

For me this is the decorating equivalent of the Shining Twins – it creates a dramatic effect, but it’s ultimately, quite scary!
