Accessorising Bathrooms

Hi there, wow what a couple of days I have had!! First a phonecall yesterday from 'The Telegraph' wanting to photograph one of my homes for thier Saturday Home Magazine!! Very exciting - so stay tuned and I will share more when I can. The photo shoot is set for next Tuesday.

As if that wasn't enough excitement for one week when I get a phone call from 'House & Garden Magazine' today also wanting to photograph one of my homes!!! Oh my god!! I nearly fell over backwards. So fingers crossed we have the right interior for them. I'll  have to come back to you on that one. Still uber exciting just to get a phonecall from them. They are a great magazine that I have subscribed to for many years.

Today's post is on accessorising bathrooms. I have had two queries from clients this week about how to accessorise thier bathroom and just jazz it up a bit. One of them has a new modern bathroom that is just a bit clinical for them, the other is a dated but charming Art Deco style with pedestal basin, art deco sconces and those big old fat crackle finish tiles. So here's the latest on decorating the bathroom.

A new trend that I have seen emerging is to decorate your bathroom with furniture items and treat it as just another room in your house that needs furnishing. This is fine if you have a large bathroom and room for that extra piece of furniture for va va voom. If your room is small then it's as easy as adding artworks, trays, vases, candles and coloured towels. Have a look at these images - hope you find some inspiration.
