Guest bathroom – Reveal

A few weeks back I shared my sources of inspiration to redecorate our guest bathroom. I wanted to be a little bold as this is a small room, tucked away and not used very often. It was the perfect opportunity to try something without much impact, if the attempt resulted in failure.

At the time I also took pictures of our guest bathroom as it used to be, and, of course, I then accidentally deleted these, which means I have no ‘before’ photographs to show you. So imagine that it was completely white and very plain.

Our guest bathroom is small (like most guest toilets), got fairly high ceilings and therefore was feeling rather clinical and soulless. My objective was to create a cosier and bolder space where people would actually enjoy spending time (I leave it there).

So how does it looks like now?

As you can see I went for a dark colour on one of the walls to make a bit of a statement but also warm up the space. In this case, I picked Dulux Teal Tension, which, even though is a very dark teal colour, is also quite a warm colour.

For the decor and art, I went for a brass and gold theme as it works very well with teal and really warm up the space.

Scratching map guest bathroom

On the wall I have a scratching map my parents got me for Christmas a few years back, which I yet have to scratch because I find it too pretty all in gold.

Gold picture frames

Next to the map I hung three gold pictures frames from TK Maxx with photographs I took in Jordan, the Seychelles and Thailand. I picked these as all were taken at sunrise or sunset and tie in nicely with the gold of the frames.

The Gossips by Norman Rockwell

Finally, I left leaned against the wall a little bit of entertainment for our guest with an original cover of The Saturday Evening Post, from March 1948, found in a flea market in the US and with the famous The Gossips drawing by Norman Rockwell.

Around the toilet you will find the necessary toilet rolls stand, brush and bin from Ikea.

Heated towel rail

The heated towel rail couldn’t be more conventional and on it I usually have this towel bought in Berlin.

Finally, on the other side of the room, you will find the teeny tiny sink and mirror cabinet.

Guest bathroom skin and Petit Marseillais hand soap

On the sink I have have one of my favourite Petit Marseillais hand soap. I love its traditional soap smell and recommend you get one if you are in France anytime soon!

Argos mirror cabinet and Bath and BOdy Works candle

Finally, above the sink is a small mirror cabinet bought at Argos and on top of it a big candle from Bath and BodyWorks with the perfect ‘clean bathroom’ scent. Unfortunately. they don’t seem to have the candle anymore but they still do have the plug-in scent version.

Aaaaaand, that’s it! A guest bathroom is a small space so be creative and have fun!
