INTERIORS My house

Once upon a time…

Bathroom

…there was a bathroom. A bathroom without personality.

Bathroom

It was a perfectly acceptable bathroom. It served its purposes – except for the basin tap which had long since checked out of life. But other than that, it worked well enough – it was warm, the shower was powerful, the toilet, er… flushed.

But it was a sad bathroom. It wanted nothing more than a splash of colour, some flair, some love and attention. Some personality.

So that’s what it’s getting.

Here’s my first attempt at a moodboard. Please don’t laugh too much – I never did get the hang of Photoshop’s marching ants.

Bathroom moodboard

My grand plans for a beautiful encaustic geometric floor were sadly put paid due to time and budget constraints, but I’m determined to get some mustard in there somewhere… maybe through some fluffy new towels. I’ve also been advised against the dark wall as the room is quite small and bathrooms need to be light to be functional, but isn’t that teal-grey-navy a beautiful shade?  It’s similar to my front door, which is Farrow & Ball’s Down Pipe.

The look I originally wanted for my bathroom was based around the concept of ‘abattoir chic’ (I like to think I coined this phrase, but I probably didn’t). So I’m sticking to that theme, more or less.

The last time I saw it, the bathroom was looking significantly worse for wear (that’s my lovely fitter Fred in the pic). Fingers crossed its makeover is a success! I’m fairly confident that whatever it ends up looking like will be better than the bland magnolia wasteland I started with.
