…and bathrooms (sometimes)Romans can look lovely in traditional-style bathrooms – choose a toile design for some shabby chic period elegance. However, think about how close to potential splashes your blinds will be, and whether your bathroom is well-ventilated, as moisture can cause mould. If this is going to be a problem, Venetians or moisture-resistant rollers may be a better bet.Find out if you should choose Venetian blinds for your windows instead

Turn it into a living areaIf your living room is your favourite part of the house, extend the theme into the bathroom with comfy seating and rich fabrics. This upholstered chair wouldn’t look out of place in the cosiest of living rooms, and the pretty blind is an unusual choice that lends a sense of occasion to bath time. The pink floral prints contrast with the monochrome theme to make this one chic and comfy bathroom.
Laze in a bathroom chairWhen you’re planning your bathroom, ‘chair’ probably won’t be the first thing you think of. But if you have space to squeeze one in, it can make a world of difference. It’s somewhere to lay towels and clothing, is super-handy if you need to sit down while bathing little ones and, apart from anything else, adds personality to what can sometimes be a sterile space, adding a more relaxed, bedroomy feel. This mini armchair in a floral fabric adds a soft, feminine touch.Discover ways to create a luxurious bathing and sleeping space
Soften up a spaceJust a pinch of vintage floral can transform a simple monochrome scheme. This bathroom might look rather masculine and austere were it not for the floral armchair and Roman blind.
