i consider the bathroom to be my personal sanctuary, so when c.p. hart got in touch recently challenging me to create my perfect bathroom based on a blank canvas of one of their white bathroom suites i jumped at the chance!
they’ve invited a number of their favourite interior stylists and design bloggers to participate and showcase their bathroom design ideas, and the winning design will be rendered into a 3d image and included in their 2014 catalogue – fingers crossed!

wanting to create a bathroom design inspired by the colour palette of my beloved blog, i took inspiration from this stunning yellow tiled wet room which i’d originally spotted on daily dream decor, which had long been pinned to my bathe board on pinterest. isn’t is just gorgeous? how could you fail to be cheery each morning, after showering in such a cocoon of vibrant sunshine?
such a bold, vibrant colour requires clean, contemporary hardware lines, so i opted for the axor starck organic range of shower head, hand shower and thermostatic valve (not pictured), which promises to provide an oasis of monsoon-style rainfall each morning, to invigorate the senses. i couldn’t resist adding in the gessi ispa free-standing stool, after having a similar “shower-stool” in my hotel room in casablanca – trust me, sitting down is the perfect way to shave your legs stress-free in the shower, ladies!
there really is nothing more unwinding after a hard days’ work than running a nice hot bath full of fluffy bubbles to sink down into, and to me, the bianco mezzo compolite bath in brilliant white looks like a perfect vessel for such relaxation.
who doesn’t like to surround themselves with candles when bathing, and i love the sound of this sea salt and bay rum scented candle by sydney hale co. which promises to bring the scent of the ocean and theraputic salty air, transporting me far away to a cuban beach, mojito in hand – ahh, bliss! add in some fluffy orla kiely towels and a jonathan adler ponti bath rug to step out onto, and my paradise is almost complete!
my final bathroom corner was inspired by these brilliant white subway wall tiles contrasted with dark grey grout, which i spotted on attic mag. the strikingly graphic trend has become popular of late, as a way of keeping white bathroom walls from looking bland and institutional, and i certainly agree with attic mag who say “rectangular tiles, stacked in neat rows work well in modern bathrooms with contemporary fixtures.”
keeping with the clean graphic lines of my imagined bathroom, i opted for the rectangular vero basin and urban steel ladder rail, and kept the vibrant yellow colour palette going string through my chosen accessories – isn’t that jonathan adler carnaby stash box adorable?
so guys, what do you think – could you see yourself relaxing in my bright modern sanctuary?
p.s. stay tuned for further updates on the challenge (including the winning design!) coming soon…
