Keep on reading for details on all the products I used and inspiration for the space. Next week I’ll share a post about the bathroom mistakes I made and how you can avoid them!

The inspiration for the bathroom started with tiles… I ummed and ahhed for a long time about what tiles to use. When I was initially planning the bathroom, I thought a marble tile feature wall would be beautiful but as it got closer to locking in the tile choices there was an overload of marble bathrooms on TV and social media — I began to feel like this luxe feature wouldn’t feel that special.
So that’s when I went back to my moodboard (aka a dining room wall I converted into an oversized inspiration board) and spotted a bathroom with black and white diamond patterned tiles. My husband said they just got a new tile in (that’s at Tile Republic) he thought I’d love and that night brought home the petal tile that I of course fell in love with right away. It’s a concrete (or encaustic) tile that feels much softer underfoot than porcelain or ceramic tiles.
With the floor tile becoming the feature, we opted for a softer wall tile and selected a matte white handmade subway tile that has a lovely organic texture (these ones are made in Spain but there is a more affordable option now available from China).
Styling-wise I wanted to play with the black and white palette but didn’t want the space to feel too contemporary or stark so I injected some natural products like the timber accents, terrazzo tray and natural brushes. The Turkish towels also have a gorgeous texture that help to soften things.
Indoor plants fill this space and I move plants about in my home quite a bit (although I know they say you shouldn’t do this as it can give them ‘shock’ and kill them). At the moment there is a chain of hearts plant on the window sill, fiddle leaf fig by the bath, jade plant on the vanity and string of pearls in the shower.
The hero piece has got to be that oversized mirror that I got from Curious Grace though! It’s 1m in diametre and I love how it draws your eye as soon as you enter the bathroom.
