Period-style bathroom with a modern touch

The homeowners kept the original bathroom layout as it worked really well. The freestanding bath against the back wall makes for a great focal point and the boxed skirting around the edge neatly conceals all the pipework. They opted for a smart vinyl wallpaper, which is perfect for a humid environment.

The bath and fittings were from Bathstore.
The hot pink toile de Jouy Roman blind is made in Amilie Etienne 3596, Harlequin.
