Think outside the bathroom. Give this utility space a defiantly un-bathroom look by using ornate rugs and upholstered furniture. Living room chairs, dressers, a painted vanity and bedroom lighting add to the dressing-room feeling.
Display heirlooms. Adorn walls with collectibles, personal mementoes and tchotchkes. Storage: Urns, busts and vases all make great places to organizeand display jewellery and fresh-cut flowers.
Embrace vintage hues. Paint pieces in matte heritage tones to create an eclectic English country-house feel. Add to the historical look by framing unusual objects in deep shadow boxes to make interesting art pieces that tell a story.
