Bathroom Basics

Lately it’s all been about the kitchen for me [in case you missed it, we’ve been renovating] but typically, we have barely finished when something else catches my attention. As winter draws closer I’ve been thinking about cosying up the bathroom and recently I’ve been noticing lots of great products that I’ve been dying to get my hands on.

It’s all in the detail…


From left to Right:
[1] Doubling as a playful graphic print, I love the cheery design of this Marimekko style Tvingen Bath Sheet £8 from Ikea which would look great in a kids bathroom.
[2] Inspired by naturally occurring gemstones these Soap Stones $6 from Pelle Design the soaps are handcrafted in glycerine and combine brilliant colours with the potent effects of essential oils such as Eucalyptus and Camphor. They would look so striking piled up in the bathroom.
[3] Could a Toilet Butler be any more beautiful? £25 from John Lewis’s House collection this one is discreet and stylish.
[4] Textiles in the bathroom really soften up the functional space, this House Grey Storage Basket, £10 from John Lewis is great for tidying up toiletries and odds and ends.
[5] I love this whimsical soap dish stamped with a Modesty Is The Best Policy banner from New York based Izola £14.99, from West Elm. [6] Combining the monochrome and striped trend – this Stripes Bathmat £25 from Zara Home is chic and striking.
[7] In elegant chrome these Mira Showers Shower Heads create a luxurious and stylish statement in your bathroom. Founded in 1921, Mira is the UK’s leading manufacturer of mixer, electric, power and digital showers. The entire range of showers and accessories, such as taps and shower trays, use stylish design and innovative technology to deliver a high performance showering experience in every price range.
[8] This beautiful stoneware Faceted Canister  £16 from  Anthropologie is perfect for keeping cotton wool and bathroom essentials out of sight.
[9] Super sleek and made of warm wood, this Bamboo Digital Scale £41.62 from Crate and Barrel adds a spa-like feel to your bathroom.
