As we head firmly into spring sprucing season, I’m thinking about the changes I want to make around the house.
There’s no major refitting to be done fortunately – more adding a touch of finesse – so I’ve been gathering inspiration from Pinterest; thinking about colours in the main, but also floorings & finishes.
The first room I’m tackling is my bathroom…
Fortunately, the whiteware is in good condition, except for the bath which needs replacing as it overwhelms the space and has yellowed, making it look permanently dirty-urgh! I’ve ordered a black clawfoot bath (very similar to this, but I’m planning on painting the feet more like the one above.) I can’t wait for delivery, although it’ll be a while before I can actually get it in place.
The floor will need replacing first, which I’m pleased about as I dislike the current colour scheme, but it feels like one of the biggest decisions. I’ve been collecting wooden pallets with the idea to potentially use these to create a herringbone wooden floor, but am also rather fortunate to have friends that are renovating. They’ve just pulled up a huge space of parquét flooring and I’ve managed to swoop in & nab the blocks from the skip! #lucky
Both these plans feel so exciting, but my concern is how to keep a consistent feel from the bathroom to the bedroom as it’s ensuite, and I’m unsure whether I’ll have enough of either to do the bedroom as well. My third alternative is small hexagonal white tiles which I also like the idea of.
Colour wise, (with a permanent blush obsession) I’m loving the scheme above, aiming for more black & white with subtle touches of blush, maybe a little copper.
I’m excited to be thinking about the house again, it feels refreshing – next up, bedroom & kitchen inspirations…
In the meantime, which floor do you think I should go for?
