It's always been a dream of mine to have easily accessible makeup. Currently my makeup storage has a good solution (an open box with compartments on a shelf) but if we had the space I'd love to have something where I can easily see every item.Read More
Right peeps, I hope you all had a lovely christmas! I'm back at it (yes I'm bored of eating and watching TV already) so it's time for a reveal! A few weeks back you may have seen my post about repainting the bathroom and giving it a little bit of a mini makeover after we decided we were bored of the black walls. Well, here's the finished look.Read More
Our bathroom was pretty much ok. It was the first thing we got done when we moved in 4 years ago, so it's not exactly what I would choose now considering how much my design knowledge has evolved, but in terms of a base it wasn't that bad... but it needed a makeover.Read More
You might be wondering why I've made such a tenuous link between our self esteem and the quality of our bathrooms, and I'm here to explain all. Because in my opinion, there's nothing tenuous about it at all. Here's why...Read More
Right peeps, get ready for some proper luxury here! In this post I'm sharing all of my photos from Day 2 of our trip to Valencia with Porcelanosa to see their showrooms and new product lines for 2016. On day one we got taken to an amazing restaurant and then on a tour of Valencia's history and architecture. That could in itself have been enough but on day 2 it was down to business as we got to explore the Porcelanosa factories and showrooms. Yes, I said showrooms - this company is HUGE! I am talking like, every showroom being the size of IKEA. We went to at least 5 of them, I lost count.
Read on to see just a fraction of what was going on at Porcelanosa's design festival. A Michelin starred chef cooking for us and some of the most exquisite bathrooms and kitchen I've ever seen are just some of what's going on in this post. Grab yourself a cuppa, cos it's a whopper!Read More
Been feeling like your bathroom or kitchen could do with an update but don't have much dollar to spend? Read on my friend. A week or so ago I was over in Kensington having dinner at Balans Soho Society and I noticed in the bathrooms they had used a coloured grout. At that moment I realised I've been seeing this around a little bit at the moment, not enough to really call it a trend as such (and we all know this isn't the place to find out about trends anyway) but enough to peak my interest! I think coloured and metallic grouting is such a cool way to update your bathrooms or kitchens and even if you have a quite neutral or traditional design you can spice it up a bit with this trick.Read More
Hey guys. I come to you today with a post that is not of my usual nature... a failure! For those who follow me on social media you will have seen that we have been working on redoing our bathroom, kitchen and toilet room floor (they are all connected). The plan was to end up with a screed floor that was then glossed with a high shine varnish, with the end result being something along the lines of this...Read More
You may remember that a few months back I worked with bathroom retailer Crosswater to giveaway a Kelly Hoppen bathroom tap. As a thankyou, Crosswater sent me two products of my choice to add to our bathroom makeover (that is taking about a year to be totally finished but don't worry about that).
Here's what I chose and how they look in our bathroom...Read More
We've been working for months on getting our bathroom up to the standard that I'm happy to share with you guys. It's nearly there, with just the flooring still to be completed. We're going to experiment with screed flooring which gives a similar effect to concrete at a fraction of the price. Will show you how that goes!
In the meantime, I've been doing lots of fantasy bathroom planning with the current inspiration being a combo of brass, whitewashed exposed brick and concrete.Read More
