The cold tap on our shower was about to fall off, so Jim decided it was imperative to redo the ENTIRE bathroom. The real answer is to improve our home and to have a space that we look forward to walking into every day!
It’s so special to complete something like this with your husband and look back at the before photos and realise you had made your bathroom/ house dreams come to life. It was an efficient decision to do this last bathroom because it just completed the home.
I drew inspiration from my recent trip to Europe and all the various natural tones and textures in certain places like Italy and Greece. I also wanted it to tie into the design of our other bathroom, but with a new flare.
I also wanted to have a play with a different floor colour to what I had ever seen before, hence the terracotta style. I had seen a more pinky/ peachy TileCloud tile featured in the Three Birds Renovations project, House 10.
I had a vision of it being light and bright, but with warm and cosy features that you don’t see much in the properties nearby. Our 1960's and the VJ cladding I chose to put on the walls above the tiles get people thinking when they come in, that’s how it had always been.
What are your go-to sources of inspiration?
I love scrolling through Instagram to draw inspiration from the things and places I love and speak to me. I love looking at Spaces magazine, and I watch shows on interior design. I was thinking about even dabbling in a little design course! I’m super lucky that I have a husband that trusts me and loves all the design choices i make - probably makes the planning stages easier.
We think Jordan's aesthetic is pretty perfect too! It is not a wonder that Jim agrees...
