  • Traditional cloakroom with fish motif wallpaper

    A cloakroom is not usually an interesting room, but why not add some fun with motif wallpaper? Here, traditional Victorian-style fittings complete with high-level flush are jazzed up with a whimsical design of vividly detailed and colourful clownish fish set on a soft washed background of aqua blue. Warm parquet flooring completes the high-end look.

  • Classic putty-and-white bathroom with traditional accents

    Neutral doesn’t necessarily mean bland. Use textures and patterns in the same colour band, such as tongue-and-groove panelling and encaustic floor tiles, to add interest in an otherwise white bathroom. Additional details, such as claw feet on a bath and curlicues on a mirror frame, add a final flourish.

  • Traditional bathroom with classic roll-top bath and birch branch

    Create a beautiful mix of modern and traditional. To give a classic roll-top bath a contemporary feel, consider simple rather than decorative feet and opt for a delicate painted border instead of an all-over colour. Fixing hooks to a foraged birch branch provides extra hanging space and adds a whimsical touch.

  • Traditional bathroom with vanity unit and wall mirror

    The simple scheme reflects the modern country look found in traditional homes and uses a palette of pale cream colours to enhance the period fittings and fixtures.

  • Country bathroom with traditional bath and modern shower enclosure

    Go for the perfect bathroom combo of a freestanding bath and a separate shower enclosure. This is the kind of bath you will really want to luxuriate in, while the shower allows easy access for everyday use. There isn’t enough space for this bath to be in the centre of the room, which is often when you might have floor-mounted taps. Instead, the taps are secured to the wall, with all the pipework neatly concealed – a great space-saving trick.

  • His and hers basins with Georgian mirrors

    Install a second basin for the ultimate in convenience. Go for perfect symmetry by making them absolute mirror images of each other, with the same soap dispensers, toothbrush holders and hand towels. Hang two mirrors in a Georgian style for a traditional look – these have been positioned to reflect daylight from the rooflight into the rest of the bathroom.

This pretty basin with its traditional cross-head taps has been mounted in a marble worktop and vanity unit, creating streamlined fitted storage that helps keep surfaces free of clutter.
