There’s no reason for a modern bathroom to look sterile and cold. We often spend so much time thinking about the bath and basin, the tiles and practical things, that we overlook the things that make it a room that’s a pleasure to be in. Mixing styles and periods is also a good trick to keep a bathroom looking warm and inviting. So for example if the rest of the house has period details, by all means go for a modern bathtub, but keep some of the traditional features in the room too.

Cotton Waffle Towels from Soak & Sleep
This lovely bathroom is a perfect example. The bath and taps are contemporary but the window has been painted a deep grey to highlight it’s detail, and the radiator is traditional in style. The tiled floor is practical, but the hexagon shaped tiles are modern. There are touches of luxury in the bathmat and waffle towels, and the accessories have been carefully chosen to be on-trend. And check out that wall light! It would sit happily at home in an art-deco scheme, a mid-century scheme or a modern but characterful bathroom.
