I’m really craving a bathroom that fits the rest of our home. Or, should I say, ‘that fits US.’

We’ve done the best we can with the pink-beige nightmare that existed from the previous occupants. I’ve whitewashed and painted out as much as I can. But after a sink emergency that brought our plumber friend round to our house, this ‘house-proud’ lady was feeling sheepish about our upstairs bathroom. But like most things that I find embarrassing, I welcomed our friend to explore that awkwardness and give me a quote on how much it would cost to fix the offending room. It’s a little out of our budget right now, but I can start dreaming.

Now.

How would you style a master bath in a townhouse, keeping in mind a penchant for framed art, wooden trays on the vanity and shiny taps? Thinking pinks, grey and antique white.
