A last minute change of plans means that soon the bathrooms at home are going to get some much needed love. It was going to be the guest bedroom you may remember but that is now unfortunately on hold. So first up, is the downstairs cloakroom. We did half tile it when we first moved in. That was out of necessity because I refused to go with the builders recommendation of tiles (one large tile in actual fact. WTF!) above the basin only. So it already has white metro shaped tiles with dark grouting. The floor is black. We also hung a IKEA wall cabinet for some much needed storage and an IKEA black pendant light. It has a chrome toilet roll holder, tail rail and taps. Boring as hell. It needs something to give it some oomph and look like it actually belongs to me.
A Simple but Effective Plan (I Hope)
So, the plan is for wallpaper on the top half of the walls. You can see my thinking here. But actually I was already planning this long before that other post. And as the cloakroom is actually in the corner of the kitchen which has palm print wallpaper, I’m going to continue with the theme. Except it will be a different colourway – green leaves on black. I wouldn’t normally repeat like this but it just makes sense in this instance. And as there’s not much scope for anything else, I’ll add some lovely accessories. Some coordinating towels, a new gold framed decorative mirror, a small shelf, soap dispenser and a small gold dish for rings. Job done. Well, it soon will be.
