Panelling and plumbing!

Things are moving along, albeit slowly, in the bathroom.   The flooring has been fixed down, the wallpaper is up and the panelling is in place.   Originally I had planned for the panelling to be a bit higher than you see here, but after placing some of the items, it just didn't look right so I lowered it by an inch.

Original set up -

Now -

The lights have also been added.   These are lovely little handmade lights by Art of Mini and I'll disguise the wires with gold paint.   That's the beauty of close ups - they emphasise the tiny details that can be missed.

I've been playing with furniture placement and this is how it looks at the moment.   The cistern has been heightened as it was just a low fitting and it still needs its pull chain and some brackets.     A covered table will sit front left but I needed a feel for the space.  

Still lots to do!


  1. Hello Irene,
    The bathroom is looking wonderful. Good call ont he height of the wainscot, it makes the room look bigger. I love the lights and think your plumbing fixtures are superb.Great work!
    Big hug,

  2. Ciao!!! Questa stanza da bagno e' una meraviglia!!! Bellissimo lavoro!!! Mi piace tanto il colore che hai usato!!! Bravissima!!!

  3. Hi Irene
    I really love the colour and I think you made a wise choice re lowering the panelling height slightly.
    The bath is glorious - I could spend hours in there!
    Very pretty lights by the way, thanks for the link.
    (Im about to "publish" this so Im praying it goes through smoothly...)

  7. Hi, Irene!

    Just read your comment on my blog so thanks for that! I am loving your bath. Irene! Please don't tell me you made your bathtub from a discarded tin or I shall die! Though, I would not be surprised if you had...

    More, please!

  8. Hi Irene! I agree with the others that it was the right choice to lower the wainscoting! Sometimes being true to the "feel" of a room is better than slavishly copying the real dimensions. I LOVE the wallpaper in this room... and the lights and the mirror are perfect together. As for the Tub... That is one Fantastic piece of plumbing!!!! Wish I had one like it in RL!!! Lol! This room is looking Great!

  9. It seems I'm not the only one to think that the panelling is far better with an inch off. I love the colour.

  10. Nice bathroom. I absolutely love your bathroom floor. It is so complete and gives the room class.
