More on all the seeings & doings soon, but in the meantime, bathrooms have been on my mind…

Whilst away, I was be-moaning the oddness that is four bathrooms (three ensuite), the cleaning this entails, and the severity of the lack of love I have for our bedroom ensuite in particular (hence why you won’t be seeing that one for quite some time to come!) It did get me thinking though…about the dream bathroom I mean…I’m unclear as to quite what that looks like yet, but have had fun pinning inspiration & enjoyed Katy’s timely post (yes, something like that, please!)

The above is our smallest bathroom, and is attached to what is now my studio. Used occasionally for guests, and for me to jump in the shower (our bathroom only has a bath), it’s also been used in the main, as extra storage space. The before simply had the mirror up with a clutter of empty picture frames, odds & ends, and my sewing machine! Time for a spruce & a touch of personality for sure…

Cue a little bathroom styling fun as part of a blogger challenge with industry design leader, Crosswater – it goes to show that a little goes a long way to making a difference. My tips for adding a little personal style to a quick update are as follows…

1. soften contemporary edges with practical & pretty natural elements – wooden accessories, found items, and natural sponge is a great start point
2. add storage – in a space not so frequently used, storage can go a little more aesthetic without the need to be quite as practical (although these pegs actually do a good job of both & are great for a small space) – I added a touch of colour & humour with this fun basket found in Morocco, a little handmade with my crochet cloths, and a pretty shell we found on the beach. Having a proper place for soap & toothbrushes at last is great, and when guests visit; I can pop the plant elsewhere so the vintage ercol children’s chair can be used for wash bags etc.
3. green is always good – I love plants in the bathroom for a touch of vitality, freshness & texture. A veritable jungle would be amazing, but for now, I’m happy with my fern & trailing lovely (who’s name escapes me – help?!) (FERN TIP: my fern was covered with aphids that were doing alot of damage – I brushed off the bulk by hand with a cloth & then tipped it upside down & showered the rest off – so far so good!)
