The bathroom might seem like a room that can remain fairly featureless, but a well-designed bathroom is the calling card of a truly accomplished interior designer. Aspire to give each bathroom its own unique personality – incorporating aspects like colour, artwork and fun personal details.

Advise clients to focus on choosing colours they simply love, and suit the space, as these will stand the test of time. Nobody wants to be repainting every year or two!
