I want to show you something that Kate Challis, (a designer, blogger, and all round super women) sent me recently. Kate as I just mentioned lives in Melbourne but also happened to fly over here to one of my London classes and also recently attended my class at the Supper Club in Melbourne. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off when I show you these images because what Kate has done to her bathroom totally and utterly takes your breath away!  Bathrooms, as I bang on about quite often in class tend to be quite neglected, we treat them a little austerely in my opinion and rarely soften with stuff that we would have say in our living rooms.

Well not Kate, she has used the most beautiful wallpaper to elevate her bathroom to a whole other level. Its glamorous, its boudoir like, its feels like you would want to hang out here all day. I’m inspired, infact I need to get my act together and work on my bathroom as now it’s the most neglected room in the house. Wallpaper like changing up your paint colour is one of the most transformative things you can do

Thank you Kate truly inspirational  nothing makes me happier then seeing images of before and afters particularly when they are on the darker side.

Kate’s bathroom before:




The wallpaper is Porter’s Lace in Aniseed by Catherine Martin (production designer for all of Baz Luhrman’s films). A mazing!
