Inspiration: Change Your Accessories, Change Your Bathroom

Inspiration: Change Your Accessories, Change Your Bathroom

This weekend, when we had guests over, one remarked "Oh! Your soap matches your tiles!" Yeah, we're a little kooky that way. The soap in our dispenser, our nailbrush, our towels and even the lettering on the hand lotion we leave out, is amethyst. In a bathroom, especially in a rental, where the tile colour may be something you live with rather than something you love, these little touches have a lot of impact...

Turn to a colour wheel to help you choose something other than white. Towels can match your tile color or for something a little more inspiring, try a contrasting colour or an analagous colour. Here, pea-green towels, aubergine curtains and a red vase add drama and contrast to the large tub; the same bathroom with white towels, a clear glass vase and flowing sheer white drapes would create a completely different impression. This is a fairly inexpensive fix that can you can undertake yearly to give yourself a lift (and don't forget to donate your old towels to your local animal shelter)
