My thoughts have really shifted into gear to do our bathroom which is screaming out for a makeover. So, I have been saving file after file of photos and suppliers and have realised that I actually do know what I would like in here (I thought it was going to be a hard task). This bathroom above would look perfect in our home and has all of the elements I am yearning for in this space. Bath under a window, loads of panelled storage, telephone style taps, venetian mirror, lots of fresh white…and wood floors!
source Now, Brooke has given me the perfect idea to the wooden floor worries…a tile ‘mat’!! I love this idea and think it would make a feature of our claw foot bath if it was under the window. I always thought I wanted a chandelier in here, but after seeing the glass bell jar light Brooke has used, I am loving it. The panelling is superb. source I really want to keep a sense of age and nostalgia in this space and would love to hunt down some beautiful taps like these. I have the Samuel Heath catalogue coming to me, which I am sure I will have oodles of wants from.
source Beaded white walls is high on the list of wants for this rooms, actually must haves, and I love it with this double vanity and the shutters. Our bathroom has some serious privacy issues and I would love to have a clear glass window like in the first photo, so shutters would be great.
Our toilet is in the same room (it is a huge space) and for some privacy we have for a long time talked about a nib wall to hide it, but keep the space open. Like this photo, but it would stop where the beading stops and the top part of the wall would be open…does that make sense? source We have an old dresser like this which is still dark wood which I have been drawn to for a vanity. We certainly have the space to use it and I would like a white ironstone looking basin on top to keep the old feeling to the room. Crystal knobs will be the go.
I want to have some vintage inspired pieces about like jug and bowls filled with flowers, loads of linen towels, candles and clear glass pieces. I really want our home to help dictate what goes into the room to help it feel like part of our home, not just a new addition.
