In my book Romantic Style which has just been re-released in paperback I share my style and decorating ideas for how to bring a sense of romance into your homes and gardens. The beginning of the book covers my romantic inspirations with chapters on Vintage, Simple, Modern and Elegant Romantic styles. I have included chapters on Romantic Styling with ideas for Colour, flowers, display and lighting. It then moves on to romantic rooms which covers all spaces from cooking to bathing. Romantic Style bath rooms are beautiful spaces to relax and even the smallest of bathrooms can still be made into romantic spaces. Add a ton of candles, some posies of flowers, invest in a pretty mirror and add some hooks where you can hang towels and pretty robes (I'm a fan of Caro London robes and shower hats). I like to use lace panels as window treatments and pretty details like french Savon Soaps. A bath is a luxury and great for a long soak and a decent shower is a must for any bathroom. I'm quite in love with gold / brass bathroom fittings at the moment, Homebase sells this Gold Westminster bath/shower mixer tap which I think would look amazing in an all white bathroom and the vintage style and luxe gold will certainly add a romantic feel. For more inspiration for your romantic bathroom please check out my book Romantic Style and also follow my Selina Lake - Bathrooms Ideas board on Pinterest. How do you create a sense of Romantic Style in your bathroom?
