I started shooting this post absolutely ages ago, and have been trying ever since to get a picture of the whole bathroom but it’s a) too small and b) too dark, and after having a total paddy about the rubbish pictures, I decided life was too short to weep over blog posts, and gave up.
I really like our little bathroom, even though the emphasis is on the word little. As you go in, you can walk straight to the toilet or get in the bath, and that’s it – and you can’t get to the sink without shutting the door right up either. But it just feels really calm, and in the summer it gets the evening light which is gorgeous; the sunlight filters through the gaps in the blind and makes the whole room glow.
I’ve collected loads of bits over the years that have ended up in here; some like the shells and the cacti, which were gathered specifically with the bathroom in mind, while the little home-y bits like the enamel jug and floral tin were found at boot sales and charity shops and have just ended up in here by accident. I think that’s the best thing about having lots of ‘stuff’ – you can always shift things around and get a brand new look without buying anything else.
