The Perfect Bathroom with
Nicky Haslam
Interviewed by Joel Donovan
Edited by Alice Kelpie
From his first watercolour to the finished product, Nicky Haslam’s bathroom designs always exude the eclectic glamour that his work is best known for. Whether it’s the decadent marble he uses for his clients, or the use of chintz in his own home, they never fail to be utterly chic. We caught up with Nicky to find out about his recipe for creating the perfect bathroom – whatever the size.
Joel Donovan:What is your favourite colour for a bathroom?
Nicky Haslam:I just saw a bathroom by Robert Moore in House and Garden. It looked wonderful - the walls are deep blue, and everything else is white. I’d like to do a blue bathroom. I tend to do them in off white or pale pink. As my friend Nan Kempner used to say ‘Give a woman a pink bathroom and she’s happy’ - as it makes you look so wonderful.

 

JD: How do you warm up a chilly bathroom?
NH:Heated towel rails do it pretty well! It would be quite fun to do a bathroom in the House of Hackney Palmeral print. That would be rather wonderful – to make a bathroom look unlike a bathroom.

 

 

 

JD: What are your bathroom essentials? Bath or shower?
NH: I think bathrooms look funny without a bath, there’s something weird about it. I did a house for a client who didn’t want a bath, so she had a huge bathroom with no bath – and it seemed so wrong. If you’ve got the space then certainly both.
JD: Do you have a bathroom storage secret?
NH:The key is to have plenty of it! Wash bags from House of Hackney all lined up would be nice.

 

JD: What gives a bathroom glamour and how do you create drama?
NH:I’m not sure drama is what one wants in a bathroom, but glamour certainly. Being able to see oneself perfectly, every pore, is a good place to start. Good lighting is the essential element of a bathroom I think. As well as very hot water and plenty of towels!

 

JD: What are your favourite materials to use in a bathroom?
NH:You’d be a bit mad to use satin in a bathroom. It might be rather beautiful though. I like chintz bathrooms. Bathrooms that don’t look like bathrooms are rather wonderful.

 

JD: How do you decorate a small bathroom such as a downstairs loo?
NH:Use the largest scale print you can, or largest size whatever. It takes your eye to something bigger than the room is.

 

JD: What would be your basin of choice?
NH:The loo is more important really. The Westminster is the prettiest loo ever made. It has a basin to match, I think. It is slightly octagonal, it’s a very pretty basin.
