Bathroom Make-over

The bathroom is one of those rooms that we don't spend enough on. When we move into a new house, we may choose nice tiles, a set of new towels and make sure we have a cupboard to put all our lotions and potions. There are always other priorities that take over. But just remember, the bathroom is the place where we actually go to chill out, especially if you are into your long soaks in the bath. So we want it to look pretty, right? A few candles sitting about ready to be lit, a display of 'good' towels, trendy trinkets for holding your toothbrushes and soap. You don't have to go mad to update your bathroom and make it feel more homely and chic.

SOHO HOME - House Robe, £60
Dressing gowns hanging from the back of the bathroom door can sometimes look untidy and kill the overall style of your room. So, if this is where you keep yours, buy one that adds to the style of your bathroom and matches in with your accessories. Bathrooms are rooms we live in, not show rooms, so we need to have some homeliness about them.

These striped towels from Soho House are available at Liberty London in lots of different colours. They look great on display in the bathroom and feel very luxurious. We favour the grey Malibu House Pool Towel - £55.

KELLY HOPPEN - Black Wicker Basket, £95
These decorative baskets are a great storage item to have in your bathroom, they look good tucked in a corner and they are different to normal storage cupboards. They can hold towels, kids toys, laundry or anything you don't want lying about.

SKULTUNA - Small gold tone boule vase, £130
There's nothing like a colourful vase with a few twigs or flowers to brighten a bathroom. This is where you can really inject colour if you want to keep everything else neutral. 

KELLY HOPPEN - Rectangular Black Lacquer Tissue, £30.
Keep boxes of tissues stored inside this beautiful tissue box so as well as not displaying the tissue box itself, you get another decorative piece in your bathroom.

KELLY HOPPEN - Ando Ribbed Metal Tray, £39.
These display trays are one of our favourite decorative accessories for the home. They work well in any room for setting bits and pieces on, many of which you find in the bathroom (cotton buds, perfume, clips etc).

BYREDO - Cotten Poplin Candle, £54
And of course no bathroom would be complete without the burning of a scented candle while soaking in the bath. One that also looks good when it's not lit.
