So, avocado and peach suites are out, right?
Totally agree! And there's nothing sharper or more fail-safe than than an all white combo. There are an abundance of differing styles available that work every time, each becoming timeless classics that will fit into any scheme without issue.

However, there are other options!

I've designed this bathroom with two things in mind - the recent leaning towards greenery & botanics PLUS the ongoing trend for taking personal time-out for self care.

I've moved right away from the slick, clinical polished white that we ordinarily refer to when we talk bathrooms. I spotted this bath (that beautiful black, layered structure in the centre is a stone composite bath, you can actually bathe in it!) and it was just perfect for this latest scheme - Unwind.

There's no better antidote to stress than to get back in touch with nature and so I've created the bathroom from an amalgamation of natural textures and materials to stimulate the physical senses and soothe the soul.

Warm timber flooring and smooth pebbles underfoot; slate walls; dark stone basin & bath and plenty of lush greenery (its everywhere at the moment!) If your'e green fingered go for the real deal, if not there are some amazing faux plants available these days, like this fabulous bamboo screen from RSG - so go ahead and just fake it! Ive kept the colour scheme deliberately dark so it encourages the brain to slow down and the body to relax at any time of the day.

At the very least, every bathing experience should gently address each of the senses -

  • Steamy hot water - Touch ☑
  • Soft, low lighting options - Sight ☑
  • Music - Sound ☑
  • Something that smells divine, like one of these amazing, customised bath soaks from The Bathory - Smell ☑
  • And a last but not least a glass of whatever takes your fancy, purely to tick the box of course! - Taste ☑
