What Houzz contributors are saying:
Glam up the detailsTile trim might not be at the top of your list of design decisions, but your bathroom designer will have it on theirs and will know that making the right choice – white? aluminium? tile? rounded? square-edged? – can have a positive impact on the look of your new wash space.Here, Emma Merry of Emma Merry Styling has chosen a striking brass finish to tie in with the towel rail and taps, upping the style and tying all the details together.
Sharpen a classic combinationThere’s a gentle 1950s Hollywood glamour about the mix of pink, white and brass. Picking indigo blue as an accent colour removes any risk of sugary connotations and lends a sharp, serious touch to this space by Emma Merry Styling. The towels and floor tie things together nicely – the blue works with the vanity unit, but the shade of it matches the pink tonally, and creates a formal, pulled-together look.
To change the layout, Emma and her team needed to update the pipework. “We encountered difficulties, as the pipework in 1990s homes was traditionally taken internally rather than running to an outside wall and down the side of the house,” Emma says. They managed to locate the soil pipe and streamlined this to encompass the waste for all the sanitaryware. “This created more wall space for the beautiful brass heated towel rail,” she says.Are you planning to renovate your bathroom?

Give it some metalTake your bathroom up a notch by adding fittings and fixtures with a metallic finish. Copper and brass are particularly popular for bringing some bling into your washroom.Less is more when it comes to getting this look right, though, so stick to the same metal throughout the space and hold back on introducing too much. This elegant bathroom, created by Emma Merry Styling, has been lifted by just a few key metallic elements. The brass complements the white walls and navy vanity unit for a subtle boost.
