This quarter, we are delighted to have Tiffany Grant Riley, from the blog Curate & Display, listing her 5 must-have bathroom accessories. Tiffany is an interior designer with Scandinavian and minimalist inspiration, according to her: less is more! She also co-founded Function + Form, an offline community of like-minds celebrating handcrafted design, independent makers and interior style. We hope you’ll find inspiration in her work and in her selection.
It goes without saying that it’s the details that really help to pull the feel of a room together and the bathroom is no exception. As one of the most important rooms in the house, I think it should be treated as a living space in its own right, a place where one can retreat, relax and feel refreshed…
A large bathroom is quite a luxury given that space is usually given to living areas and bedrooms as priority, but had I room enough I’d love to include a lounge chair. The Slow Chair, designed by the Bouroullec brothers for Vitra has an airy, lightweight look which visually won’t eat up space and is the perfect spot for reading in whilst you wait for the bath to run. And mine takes forever.
Keep a small library close at hand for those leisurely baths with a magazine shelf. I’m a particular fan of Utology’s with its minimalist design, made from ash wood, brass and grey felt.
Portable technology has come along in leaps and bounds in recent years and Vifa‘s bluetooth speakers are a beautiful piece of design in their own right. The Oslo (in Pebble Grey, of course) is compact, can be carried around with you and the wool covering the speaker is produced by Kvadrat. Scandinavian style which sounds great too.
No bathroom is complete without stylish skincare – I prefer to use non-animal tested products like the Version Originale range from Compagnie de Provence. Not only are they kind on your skin and the environment but they smell divine and their glass amber bottles add instant luxury.
As a ﬁrm believer in the beneﬁts of keeping house plants, I can’t recommend them enough for the bathroom. They clean the air for you and help to soften the edges of a space that might otherwise feel a little clinical. Choose a plant that thrives in humid environments such as the Boston Fern and display them in a planter like the black plant box by Ferm Living. One of my absolute favourite planters around, I love its minimalist style which can be used as a screen with taller plants, or as an alternative storage solution if plants really aren’t your thing.
