Today’s guest post will showcase some fabulous tips on a somewhat challenging subject: how to style your bathroom. Designing a bathroom requires a heavy focus on how the space is used, as well as great attention detail when it comes to materials and finishes. With those challenges in mind, we’re delighted to present one of the best designer in London Cate St. Hill with some tips and tricks.
With an eye for minimal, Scandinavian design, Cate St. Hill’s design philosophy centers around beautiful, pared-back rooms that celebrate the ordinary. She offers personalised services to create spaces that suit the users. Her blog features some truly beautiful photography, great writing and useful information, and we’re excited to hear from her today on some bathroom design tips that celebrate #thesimpleeveryday without sacrificing style or quality.
When it comes to the bathroom, every little detail counts, even the toilet roll holder. This powder-coated, black metal design from Danish brand Ferm Living will add a simple, minimal touch to any style of space. The black is smart, elegant and won’t show the dirt as much as a shiny metal equivalent. Use it to display a beautiful, patterned hand towel in the downstairs loo or to stylishly hold your toilet roll in place.
With a bathroom, it’s important to think about the key touch points – the door handles, the light switches, the taps, and of course the hand towel, sitting in pride of place on a heated radiator or in your black holder if you’ve bought the one above. This is a lovely, soft, waffled cotton design in timeless grey, with frayed edges by Hay. Simple, Scandi and wonderful to touch.
A decent mirror is a must. Designed by Javier Moreno Studio, the Flip mirror for Normann Copenhagen has a clean, simple shape and organic expression. The mirror can be turned up, down and twisted 360 degrees, while the tray base can be used to store lotions, potions, and bits and bobs.
Stock up on a couple of these cylindrical baskets in braided jute, perfect for tidying away and sorting out your cotton buds from your cotton pads, and your nail varnishes from your eye shadows.
Create a calm, spa-like sanctuary in the bathroom with a couple of indulgent, scented candles. Byredo is up there with the best, and not only because of its minimal, monochrome packaging. This sensual scent, Peyote Poem, combines a rich blend of Mexican aromas, from Tonka bean, fir and juniper, to clove, patchouli and hyacinth.
