When it comes to interior style, the bathroom is often neglected. It’s practical rather than pretty, and it can be hard to see how decorative pieces work in such a functional space.Many bathrooms are also quite small, which makes adding extra detail a tricky task. But if you’re longing for a little boudoir glamour in your basic bathroom, it can be done – just check out our top tips!

 A French boudoir bathroom makeover

Go all white

If your bathroom is on the small side, a clean, white finish will add light and make the space feel bigger. If you can, paint your bathroom walls in a crisp white shade or think about retiling using simple white subway tiles.

Utilise the walls

We hang pictures and prints in almost every room of the house… so why not the bathroom, too? Put old maps and vintage posters in antique frames and hang them from the walls for a mismatched look.

Think fluffy

Nothing says luxury like soft, fluffy towels – replacing the linen will give your bathroom an instant update. Go for a classic white style with an accent colour like black or grey for a chic finish.

Mixed metals

Metallic accents add a stylish edge to a simple bathroom space. We love copper and brass for a more industrial feel – look for gilded toothbrush holders, soap dishes and towel rails.

Mirror, mirror

A big, bold mirror is a must for any beautiful bathroom – match it to your metal accents or look for a carved wood version for that French boudoir style.

Add greenery

Plants are the perfect finishing touch to a bathroom space. Greenery really pops against a clean white background, and many plants thrive in the warm environment.

Keep it clean

A clean space is a happy space! If you can, store bottles out of sight, keep laundry covered and minimise clutter.
