Bathroom

INTERIOR: HOUSE OF HACKNEY X C.P. HART COLLABORATION

Sometimes, we all need a moment to escape. To switch off from the outside world and reconnect with ourselves. To do nothing except while away an hour in a scented bath, lit by the gentle glow of candles. While it may seem like a luxurious thought, in our demanding times, indulging in a little self-care is truly essential.

Any bathroom can be reclaimed as your own sanctuary and, depending on your vibe, transformed into a space rivalling either a chic hotel spa or the powder room of a cool member’s club. The fastest route (and, somewhat unsurprisingly, our favourite) is to splurge on sumptuous wallpaper. As bathrooms are often the smallest spots in the house, covering all four walls is an easy and enticing prospect. Given that you’re only in there fleetingly – except for time spent languishing in the tub – you’re unlikely to tire of your choice of print. So, why not opt for something playful and unconventional: think troops of climbing monkeys, flourishes of tropical foliage or painterly wildflowers unfurling in psychedelic colour. Deep, rich shades make an even bigger splash, contrasting beautifully with white ceramics and metallic finishes. If you really want to push the boat out, try painting the bath in the same shade as the base of your wallpaper – alternatively, complement one of the key colours in the pattern with coordinating tiles.

BATHING BEAUTY

If a subtle wash of print is more your thing, made-to-measure blinds will imbue the room with a drop of personality while granting you some much-needed privacy. After that, it all comes down to the accessories. It may go without saying that a mirror is a necessity, but it’s not vain to hang up a decadently oversized design – in fact, it will help to bounce the light around. Though your pharmaceuticals are best kept behind closed cabinet doors, a line-up of your prettiest toiletries looks Instagram-ready displayed on a shelf or trolley. Stacks of fluffy towels and a statement cushion on top of a chair, if you enough space, will soften the room’s hard lines. So too will a botanical oasis; many plants like it hot and will thrive in a bathroom even if sunshine is lacking. Oh, and speaking of humidity: our wallpaper is made from a high-quality substrate, which ensures it won’t wander off the walls no matter how steamy it gets. And there you have it: a relaxing haven where you can recharge your batteries in peace – if you do ever get a minute to yourself, that is.
