How to….accessorize your bathroom


Why yes, this is a thing. You may not call it accessorising – to be honest, I don’t usually either – but adding nice, aesthetically pleasing objects to your bathroom to make it just that tad more inviting/spa-like/luxurious is definitely worth doing. Most of these things (soap dishes, toothbrush holders etc) are necessities, so by upgrading them you have a very affordable way to change the whole feel of your bathroom without splashing the cash…



Art Deco and old Hollywood style are big decorating stories this year. If you want your bathroom to have a touch of ornate glamour then these accessories are the way to go…

White is a classic bathroom theme and for good reason. Calming, neutral and easy, white accessories add the perfect spa feel, whilst this wooden bath tidy by the White Company is a best seller for good reason.

Colour and Pattern


Colour and pattern can look fab in a bathroom (our new one has fab Moroccan tiles which I will forever thank the old owners for…) With a little tweak, these shelves (above) would look great in a bathroom. Keep your cotton buds in a glass jar, add a few creams and install a candle, and you not only have a great storage system, but a beautiful looking space.

Whether you’re using hurricane lanterns, small votives, tea lights or ornate displays, candles are an obvious (and great) way to add atmosphere.

While the picture above isn’t strictly from a bathroom, just think how great your bathroom bits – toothbrushes, tweezers, make-up, cotton wool would look in glass containers. You could even use your old candle containers which always look great…
