home: trend [ vanity units ]
Trends have changed a lot across the last decade in bathrooms. No longer are designs so traditional and pieces purely designed for a bathroom.
It’s now about furniture that makes a statement and allows the room to feel more like any other – considered, with thought and more than just a ceramic sink and toilet in a tiled room.
Interiors trends of minimal, maximalist, monochrome, traveller, midcentury, mosaic, herringbone, black – are all trends we see translating into the design of the bathroom.
When it comes to picking the vanity unit it’s about the style and design, the practicality and function, and also now we have a far broader range of furniture to choose from – and even growing in popularity is using furniture pieces that aren’t for a bathroom but converting them to work. Typically midcentury sideboard work incredibly well. The shape lends itself to working well, with good counter area and storage space in the form of draws and/or cupboards.
Consider balance of the size of furniture in the room as bathrooms aren’t often the biggest of rooms. Choose a mirror that suits the style of the unit and is not to over powering in size to dominate the room.

home: made [ bath caddy ]
For some people there is nothing better then a relaxing evening in a bath with a book and a glass of wine. Putting said book and wine somewhere safe isn’t always easy, so have you considered a bath caddy?
This practial addition to your bathroom is straight forward in construction made fully of wood [ cedar is a good choice ], and if you have the correct tools, simple to make.
We have found a great tutorial from themerrythought.com

home: featured [ Found ]
After a recent visit to Bath we came across Found – a great looking contemporary shop full of an eclectic mix of stationary, homeware, clothing and more.
Owned by Olivia Brewer and Nik Blake, it’s described as a ‘mini department store’ which we would agree with. You enter into gifts and stationary, through to tableware and homeware and at the back is clothing and accessories.
The hand selected pieces all work cohesively together creating a very pleasurable shopping experience. It’s hard not to pick up and feel everything as you go round.
Found also has an online shop worth checking out if your not in Bath. But if you are planning a visit then you must pop into this one of a kind store.
