The Bathroom

The next room I wanted to blog about is my bathroom. Although it was both the last room I decorated and the one I did the least to, I think the small changes have had a huge impact.

 

The bathroom before was simple and functional. I loved the skylight and the laminate floor which made the space feel very light. I was actually really happy with the room as it was and wasn’t going to redecorate it…until I saw this stunning wallpaper!

A friend sent me a picture of it and I couldn’t get it out of my head. Given that I had finished the rest of the house at this point, I couldn’t think where it would work and then suddenly it was so obvious that the perfect room for it was the bathroom. I did a bit of research and found a website where the owner had used the same wallpaper in a small under the stairs toilet and the wallpaper was doing well after a number of years. Once I had established I could use the wallpaper in the bathroom without any problems my mind was made up!

As the walls are tiled it had to be the ceiling and actually I love looking up at the golden swimming fish as I lie in the bath. I also painted the window surround gold as the white would’ve been too stark. The tiles were actually not that noticeable when I viewed the house, but now the dark metallic tiles work so well with the wallpaper. The wallpaper has completely changed the feel of the bathroom into something unique and very me.

The rest of the bathroom is mainly just my stuff. I had to have a plant in here and this one seems to be very happy under the skylight.

I have a lot of products so I have two storage units and have also made the most of the shelf that runs the width of the bathroom.

I do want to add more shelves mainly for plants and candles, but I am not in a huge rush. I am just enjoying the swimming golden fish!

The Best Shower Oil?

This is a giant bottle of the Bioderma Atoderm Shower Oil (£13.50). I wanted a moisturising shower oil as the weather changes and my skin gets drier. This is an ultra-nourishing oil that cleanses, restores lipids and soothes
The texture is really creamy and silky, with a  subtle scent and it is non-greasy.

A great purchase if you have dry sensitive skin or just like shower oils!

Body Shop Perfume

I love scents that make me think of incense. This perfume from Body Shop was a very pleasant surprise. Its called Nigritella Oriental Orchid (£28) and smells divine! Its floral but musky with vanilla and tuberose alongside the red vanilla orchid.

As you can see I have finished this bottle and am torn between buying this again or trying another one from their range – Bowhanti Spicy Woods smelt incredible too!

A travel essential

I cannot fly without an oversized scarf. It is stylish but can also double up as a blanket, or even a lightweight jacket! I love the Zara “soft scarf” £19.99, they come in a range of colours (I have a grey one already) but this one in blush pink had to come home with me! They are super soft and oversized so a perfect travel companion, my daughter always has one too!
