Bold and Beautiful

With a more unique trend certainly being seen across social media at the moment, and one I love to see, as our homes should be something unique and personal to us. One area to create a great start of something bold if you're a little afraid of deeper tones and bold wallpapers is the small forgotten rooms, for example the w/c. We will cover just a few things to push your uniqueness by starting small, and creating a space which balances style and function.

Adding Art-

Bringing artwork small or large will help to reflect your personality as well as add interest to the space. This can also create a connection to the rest of the home, as this space can often be left to feel forgotten and lost.

Bold Wallpaper-

With wallpaper you can push the maximalist look with larger busier patterns and ranges of colours, and don't be afraid to use dark colours to create a dramatic space that creates an impact for visitors.

If you're a fan of panelling, as I am, then this is perfect to incorporate into your w/c, this too helps create a connection with the rest of your home. With a range of styles of panelling to choose from, incorporating this feature creates a warm, homely scheme, that stops the room feeling cold or isolated.


Here is another way of creating a unique focal point, experimenting with shapes and sizes, patterns and colours. This can create a piece of art on its own. If the space is small push the pattern to the floor tile and create a texture on the walls to avoid a feeling of being enclosured.

Other ideas to consider incorporating into your design could be floating surfaces to create a space feeling airy that doesn't overcrowd. Also, metallic finishes for the luxe look that may stand out from the bold colours.

Overall, a w/c is certainly a great way to start your confidence to creating a more unique home and something a little bolder. The way colours, pattern and texture can be used to bring personality, will hopefully help you visual the same mixture throughout your home.
