There’s supporting the World Cup and then there’s …

June 10, 2010

THIS! I’m all for a little cheek paint here, and an England top there, but an England-inspired bathroom? It’s confusion like I’ve never encountered. I’m just praying that this bathroom decorating scheme is inspired by some deep-routed sense or patriotism, or love of history, and not by their love of football. On the other hand, if it is in support of this year’s World Cup, I’m happy to see that someone has enough faith in the England team to permanently hang a giant red Perspex CROSS!

Not my taste, but I admire their patriotism (goodness knows we’ll need it!)

Bathroom design ideas for every style

June 10, 2010

Housetohome is doing a series of the best traditional, modern and country rooms at the moment and I LOVE peering through the galleries to hunt for my favourites. The really tricky bit for me is deciding what style I am, because just when I’ve sat down with a cup of tea in front of the beautiful country style scheme, in PROUDLY strolls a modern design which pretty much stamps all over the chintzy little design – meany.

I’m thinking a lot about bathrooms this week, so these ideas couldn’t have come at a better time. Here are my favourite looks for each style.

Floral flooring

August 18, 2009

Check out this fab flooring idea. I often get so distracted by statement wallpapers and feature walls, that I almost forget how much difference your flooring can make. In this bathroom, fresh spring florals add interest to the vinyl flooring, and the walls are kept neutral so the floor can steal the show.

… or wine not try this a feature wall like this?

August 13, 2009

Following on from yesterday’s post, I found this powder room ideas on myhomeideas this morning. The walls are covered in wine labels! I once heard that if you see someone peeling labels off a wine bottle it means they’re … agitated, but maybe they’re trying to recreate this vintage-style look?

Much more than a door!

August 12, 2009

I was engrossed in my morning blog stalking and I came across this cool bathroom door idea on Desire to Inspire. This look might not be for everyone, but I think it really gives this bathroom character – write up your favourite quotes, some self-motivating mantras, or remind your hubby to take out the rubbish (in capitals!) … and like the hassles of everyday life, you can always just shut the door on it!

Up the garden bath!

August 3, 2009

Check out this outdoor bathroom from Swedish blog CreativeActivity. They’ve taken the latest indoor-outdoor style trend to a new level, by keeping the seating area inside and the shower and tub on the patio outside. If the weather’s great it’s a really cool idea – and if it’s not, well … nothing says ‘natural spa style’ like a rainwater shower! I don’t think I have the luxury of incorporating this in my home, but i love those Moroccan-style tiles.
