Bathroom Edit

For women, nothing beats a beautiful bathroom. It's where our beauty regime starts and finishes every day, a place where we come to relax and destress. Style director Louise Hilsz shares her top three trends and how to create them in your home.

FEMININE

For some lucky ladies, they have their own bathroom - no trace of masculinity and styled to perfection using pretty prints, textured detail and fresh flowers. Make this space yours with no compromise.

MODERN LUXURY

For that restful vibe after a stressful day, a bathroom with clean lines will be your sanctuary. Neutral tones and luxurious finishes like marble, matte, wood and chrome make this trend. While this look can be stark, keep a modern bathroom feeling warm with your favourite scented candle.

STATEMENT COLOUR

Of all the rooms in your home, the bathroom, especially a guest bathroom is one that you can load with colour. The best place to start is a bold wall covering. If after a year or two you have had enough it's easily taken down and a new pattern or texture can be applied. When planning the colour you don't have to choose one shade and match all the accessories - play with complementary colours to keep the balance.
