Ornate bathrooms are elegant, delicate and more than a little bit fun – think beautiful boudoir rather than minimalist space.
Use intricate detailing on cabinets and mirrors and a soft colour palette to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Careful combinations of textures and patterns on walls, tiles and floors will tie the look together.
Choosing high-quality basic accessories, such as robe hooks and towel rails, will finish off the look in style, resulting in a room that is a real bathing beauty.
Expert advice: “An embellished mirror is a worthwhile investment that has the power to transform any bathroom,” says Simply You Living editor Trudi Brewer. “As the star of the show, other furnishings and the overall décor should complement the mirror, which will bounce light around the room, making it feel larger.”
