One of my October goals was to give my bathroom a makeover. I had all sorts of plans, Pinterest boards, websites bookmarked. That was until my landlord said I had damp and I needed to have my entire bathroom walls redone. Hump.

OK, so the walls were out of bounds. But that didn’t stop me from wanting to give it, say, a little refresh instead. I’ve had the same old blue towels and blue striped bathmat since I moved into my own place about four years ago. Don’t worry, they get washed weekly, but everything in my bathroom has seen better days (see below).

I had plans to give the space a black and white makeover, but I spotted a coral paisley towel in interior store Dunelm which kind of threw that idea completely out of the window. And I didn’t just stop at buying the towel. I wanted to add some greenery to the room, so I bought this amazing little faux cactus above to add to my bath rack, as well a faux fern for my window sill. I also updated my tatty old brown caddy to this shiny new white one, and even treated myself to a brand new toilet brush. Woohoo, I must be feeling flush. See what I did there…

Swapping all my accessories to white ones (I had an old mirrored soap dish and tumbler before), has really brightened up the room no end – plus I spent around £85 on everything, which to make a room look this different is good value in my eyes. Now I’m about to go have my morning shower, which might take a little longer than usual now my bathroom feels more like a spa. If you carry on scrolling to the bottom you’ll find exactly where to buy everything in case anything catches your eye.
