5 ways to add vintage style to your... bathroom


The second in our series, created to inspire you with ideas on how you can add vintage design to different rooms in your home, this week we are focussing on the bathroom.


Recent trends have seen coloured suites return to fashion, as well as geometric 60s-inspired tiles and Victorian-inspired sanitaryware has long been in style for those looking for a classic period home feel. By adding vintage touches - from lighting to mirrors - to your bathroom, it is a chance to add character and colour to give your smallest room the biggest impact:


vintage mirror bathroom


We sourced this peach-glass vintage mirror for style editor, Erica Davies' home. The Venetian-style with mirrored frame maximises the light reflected into the space and bounces the light from the glass wall sconces beautifully.

Side tables

Storage in a bathroom can be beautiful AND practical. I love lucite to keep all my lotions and potions organised as I can see everything at a glance and it's waterproof too. Wicker and rattan side tables also work brilliantly next to a bath to hold a candle, plant, book and all-important glass of wine!

I always use wall lights in a bathroom space, typically either side of a main vanity mirror for the most flattering and relaxing lighting design. Opt for vintage metals to tie in with your taps and hardware, or I love a vintage coloured murano light that you can use to pick out your paintwork or tile palette with for the prettiest, twinkly lighting.

Opaque glass pendants are a great option if you do want to go for overhead lighting, as they're not too harsh. Always make sure you use a trained electrician who can ensure your vintage light is compatible with a bathroom environment.


If you are incorporating a dressing table or make-up area into your bathroom, a boudoir chair is a great vintage addition. These French silk chairs create a really opulent, feminine feel to your bathroom sanctuary. Often clients ask me to source a statement lounge chair for a bathroom too, they are great if you have a busy family and need to supervise bath-time!



I love adding vintage artwork to bathroom spaces - its a chance to add something fun to a private space - whether it's vintage Pirelli posters or retro advertising campaigns. Ensure you talk to your framer about suitable materials for a humid bathroom space to keep your vintage artwork in the best condition.
