Vote: Which Bathroom?

I wish it was possible to change the interior of your home as easily as it is to change your outfit! Sometimes I just can't decide how I want things to look!
And with only 1 bathroom how do you decide whether to go for the traditional Victorian style...calming and elegant?


Or something that is going to make an impact, and be fun and cheerful?!


I think I am swaying to the elegant Victorian bathroom, but what do you think?! I'd love to get your votes!!

  1. Hmmm, i'm swaying to the fist pic, love the calm elegant feel but i am having a love affair with contemporary colourful bathrooms right now so not sure.

  2. Oh, elegant, definitely. I'd leave the bright for accessories. And I just saw your shop in Elle Decoration, brilliant!

  4. I kind of used to have a bathroom like the second one and it did always make me smile... so I'm tempted to vote for it just because! ;)

    Also just saw your name in Elle Dec (had a hard time getting it this month) so well done you! :D

  5. I don't think I could handle that much colour and energy first thing in the morning so I'd go for calm & elegant.

  6. Calm and elegant - I love having tons of colour around but I agree - a bathroom should be like a minispa -cool, calming, peaceful and full of gorgeous scented candles (another extravagance of mine, oh dear) preferably from Space NK!

  7. I must say I just discovered your blog and I am loving it! I have been looking through your archives and seeing things that are giving me such ideas! As far as the bathroom, I'm afraid I'm a calm girl myself. Twyla

  11. The first one; as others have said, you can always add colour with accessories.

  12. ohhh caroline, i really do wish it was easy to change interiors, especially if you're renting a home. Which bathroom? the white one of course! no hesitations:)

  13. I'm with everyone else... Has to be the calming victorian bathroom I reckon! You could always leave the walls untiled so if you fancy a change you can easily give it a quick lick of paint. I think a rich pink would be a nice contrast... Though maybe not quite so calming!

  14. I really like both of them but I have to go with the first one. It's stunning!

  15. As much as the colourful one is fun and very, very cool. I think it would be too much to live with. I prefer the first one, and can totally imagine living with it.

  17. Although I love colour, I prefer the feel of the first bathroom. Very relaxing and calming.

  18. I would say go with the Victorian but, add a pop of color with the towels and accessories.

  19. I think I'm going to have to go for the first one - even if just for that gorgeous bath!

    The second one is fun but I can't see me kicking back and relaxing in it!
