Every New Year, I get excited about a fresh start for our home. I have files full of inspiration, colour charts and plans but always have so many ideas, I don't know where to begin.
|Mint Green Bathroom by Lucy Swales Interior Design|
This year, I'd thought I'd start simply with literally the "smallest room in the house". Sadly, I don't have the funds for the new bathroom we need, but instead I'm working with what we have and giving all our accessories a fresh start, with a fresh mint colour revamp.
When we first bought our house, the bathroom suite was in good condition, so we kept it. Unfortunately, it was a mint colour where we would have chosen a more modern white suite. I added a lot of lilac and lavender to the bathroom which complimented the mint. I seem to have finally come around to our mint suite and have found myself planning a white and mint bathroom. My mum gave me modern mint striped towels for Christmas which look stylish on our white towel rail and with a few more accessories, our bathroom has a new fresh, mint look for 2016. To find mint accessories, also search for light blue, light green, turquoise and aqua.
Take a look at these items for more mint inspiration:
Top Row: Mint Creme Luxury Candle, Home Collection Basics Aqua pedal bin, Green Polka Dot Print Cotton Towels, Wild Mint Candle
Middle Row: Pure Soap Dish, Aqua Soap Dispenser, Culture Vulture Set of 6 French Soaps, Ben de Lisi Home Blue "Broken Stripe" Towels
Bottom Row: Ben de Lisi Home Blue broken striped reversible bathmat, Wild Mint Hand Wash, Home Collection Basics Light blue bobble textured bath mat
I know the French Soap isn't coloured mint but I love buying a fresh set of these each year. They look great in a china bowl or even on a cake stand. It wasn't planned but I also have my cleaning products (Method Bathroom Cleaner) and Liz Earle Skin Care Products perfectly coordinated too, so it was a good choice of colour scheme! I may even make my next batch of candles mint coloured and scented.
What are your New Year plans for the home?
