The Primary Bathroom – Front Roe by Louise Roe

I’m a big bath fan (especially in the winter) but my priority with our bathroom was to have some space and a few luxurious touches here and there.

It was already a relatively small room but we made the shower smaller so we’d have more room around it. The shower is Burlington Bathrooms and I added a heated towel rail on the wall next to it. It’s a real treat getting out of the shower in the winter and having a warm towel. So snug. It’s also good for space saving which is essential when I share it with someone who loves his products! Our other little touch of luxury is underfloor heating that makes me feel like I’m in a hotel- I was determined not to freeze this winter so I’m thrilled we went for the it. The floor itself is the Ebony Oak Aged Parquet that we have all over the house, by The Natural Wood Floor Company. Wooden floors are fine to have in bathrooms so long as you take care of them. I wouldn’t have put them in the bathroom that the girls use as they wouldn’t survive too much splashing but in the grownups bathroom they’re fine!

The art in the bathroom is a real mix and in a room made up of greens and blues, provides some really fun pops of colour. There are some prints I’ve had for ages which I reframed; a couple of Etsy finds and a beautiful vintage print by Domenica Marland.

The walls are Normandy Grey by Little Greene Paint Company which we had actually bought for the old house and never used it. It’s a sort of sage green colour and goes really well with the blue Burlington double vanity unit as well as with the blind. That fabric is the Deco Blue Larissa on White by Aleta Fabrics which I am absolutely in love with and I found the most amazing artist on Instagram, Sarah Blomfield who hand painted the small sconce lampshades in a bespoke print inspired by the fabric. I couldn’t love them more. The sconces themselves are Pooky.

The big round mirror was in the hall in our old house (another successful re-purpose) and I was inspired by the designer Lonika Chande who had an antique shelf in her bathroom…so I found the same on Ebay. You won’t believe it but one I found (and bought!) was at one time owned by the seller’s mother who lived, with the shelf, on the same street as where it is now, with us. We couldn’t believe the connection and I feel like it’s come home! On it I’ve got some of my favourite bathroom bits; Buly body oil, some Jo Malone, face oil from Rowse and Votary and of course a couple of Penguin Classics.

The WC is also Burlington (soft close seat) as is the double vanity unit. We had a single unit in the old house and always fought over the tap so we have a his ‘n’ hers now which is great. Their finishes are so smart. The scalloped soap dish is Rachael Cocker and I’ve got some Aesop soap in a Rebecca Udall basket (I love her homewares). There’s also a Serena & Lily laundry basket and a pink painted vase from my friends at Wicklewood. The finishing touch are the Paris tiles above the sink from Fired Earth; they’re so pretty and complete the colour scheme perfectly.
