Creating a fabulous bathroom and Pebble Grey Giveaway

roll top bath
Love this fresh and stylish bathroom (image)


When we moved into our new little cottage one of the main things letting it down was the bathroom. It had awful carpet tiles on the floor in a totally uninspiring grey/brown shade. So of course the first thing that had to go was them, which we replaced with some simple repurposed tiles which have already made a huge difference in the transformation of our small bathroom in the eves. That's the thing about small spaces such as bathrooms that even simple changes can have a huge impact and by keeping the floor one colour and uncluttered it's made the room feel more spacious and airy.

Our bathroom before we laid the tiles


The next step was to do a complete repaint it looked like it hadn't been painted in years and really needed to be freshening up. We decided to go for Jasmine white on the walls to create a more bright and fresh feel and opted for Farrow and Ball egg shell blue on the woodwork, keeping things simple, subtle and stylish. Between the new tiles on the floor and a fresh coat of paint our bathroom feels like it's really starting to take shape, although we are not completely finished.

Our bathroom after the tiles have been laid - much fresher and cleaner finish

We still need to replace the glass shower panel which has probably been up there for the past 10 years and is well overdue an updated as well as the taps on the bath and sink which are somewhat outdated and buy investing in some high quality traditional style taps it will really transform the bath and sink without actually having to replace them altogether.

I love unusual, simple and stylish mirrors (image)


Something else that has been on my mind a lot is the mirror, since every bathroom has a mirror it's a rather important accessory and should not be overlooked as every guest will be looking at it at some point when they come over the visit. Again we want something simple and stylish as less is always more and investing in a quality mirror is very important and Pebble Grey have a beautiful and inspiring collection and also offer some unique choices that you would otherwise struggle to find on the highstreet. They also stock a large selection of bathroom accessories and lighting.

So top tips for redesigning a bathroom

  1. Work with what you have and only replace what you need.
  2. Go for neutral and simple shades that make the bathroom feel bright and airy
  3. Address storage issues and keep bathroom clutter to a minimum
  4. Invest in a stylish bathroom mirror – you will be using it daily
  5. Less is always more


Savio mirror
