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.
If you really want to push the boat out, try painting the bath in the same shade as the base of your wallpaper – or alternatively, complement one of the key colours in the pattern with coordinating tiles. According to Steve, “Wallpapering as many of the surfaces as you can and painting the rest in the same colour as the print’s background will help to unify the space and make it feel bigger. This could mean papering the back of the door (if it is a flat panel door), as well as built-in storage or boxed-in piping. You could even bring the wallpaper onto the ceiling if you’re feeling brave!” 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.
WET AND WILD
Our iconic leopard print makes waves against any wallpaper print or tile pattern.
Stacks of fluffy towels and, space permitting, a Bottoman (ideal for sitting on whilst getting ready) 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.
