When it came to the bathroom I decided to call in the experts to help to make better use of the space. I visited the Ripples showroom in Hassocks near Brighton for inspiration and met with the bathroom designer Alex who was able to interpret what I wanted.
I like slate-grey and stone colours, but was keen to move away from the limestone and travertine and go for a different finish.
The WC didn’t really work in the right-hand corner, and moving it to the other side would free up the space for a walk-in shower area.
I asked Alex to include some mosaic tiles; she showed me some beautiful shell tiles. I fell in love with them and they shaped the rest of the scheme. The colours range from blue and grey down to brown and they change with the light. Our designer also suggested opting for a curved bath to soften the sharp edges in the room.
The real beauty of our new space is that we can effortlessly update the look with a simple change of towels and a few accessories. Burnt orange, raspberry and turquoise all work really well.
