October on Instagram my favourite bathroom inspiration

It seems only fitting that this months Instagram finds should be dedicated to the bathroom. You know, just because I’d feel I was doing you a disservice if I didn’t absolutely bombard you with all things bathroom to be honest. So for October on Instagram my favourite bathroom inspiration is my gift to you. You’ll be wondering how people have bathrooms this beautiful and why there isn’t toothpaste around the sink, towels on the floor and more bottles and potions on the worktops. I ask this every morning. But then I also know that doing it for the ‘gram is a day job for many and also interior designers now invest heavily in getting their work photographed professionally. It makes me feel a whole lot better as I survey my rather drab family bathroom! Have I mentioned at all that I’m renovating it early next year? And that all of this is fueling the most epic list of requirements that both my builder and especially my husband are shaking their heads about. In fact, I’ve been told to step away from Pinterest and from Instagram by my lovely husband. It seems my idea of a dream bathroom isn’t quite the same as his….. well, that might actually be something to do with how the budget keeps needing to be bigger. Oops.

I didn’t know until recently that Conde Nast had a property account on Instagram and now it pops up in my feed with the beautiful interiors that oligarch’s and billionaires experience every day. This jewel of a green bathroom is enough to crash the internet as far as I’m concerned.

So simple yet so impactful, in such a tiny space. The colour of the grout is a triumph especially when matched to the ceiling colour. I do have one quibble though, the grout lines and the tiles don’t match up on the left-hand corner. Think they needed a tile plan for this one.

This monochrome powder room has so much impact for such a tiny space. Designed by Widell and Boschetti this little space with its graphic tiles and gorgeous wash stand got my heart racing. Instagram my favourite bathroom inspiration as otherwise, I’d never of found this little gem.

Who could fail to love the gorgeous bathroom of Jordan and Russell from 2LG Studio? Now they know their way around a tile plan. Everything precisely thought out so all those grout-lines line up and the shelf appears to float. Plus hello, wall to wall pink.

Impressive curves for a Friday morning! And checkout those tiles. #Repost @archdigest ・・・ “This is not the typical French architecture that you find in Paris,” notes @juliedelibran of her home in a former archive structure near Montparnasse. As #AD100 architect @charles_zana explains, a goal when converting the industrial storage space into a home was was “to maintain its original spirit, so we opened the spaces, uncovered the underlying brick and steel, and reoriented the house to the gardens.” The daughter and niece of interior designers, de Libran already had a clear picture of exactly how she wanted the home to look when she took it over, which not everybody can do. But then, she has spent years training her mind to see clothes that don’t exist, as a designer and most recently the creative director of @soniarykiel. The most vital additions were the two gardens—a big one in the courtyard designed by Louis Benech, and a more private terrace around the back. In the entrance hall, Libran often arranges flowers from them in the stone sink, seen here. Vintage Gio Ponti tiles line the walls and a pendant from @rwguild illuminates the nook.

My friends at Reed Harris know a good tile when they see one. But I am equally enamoured with this monolithic stone sink, can’t even begin to imagine how heavy that is. Throw in some brass with that forest green tile and it’s a match made in heaven.

Rustic is not my go-to design choice these days, although a touch of Wabi-Sabi is always satisfying. This sink is beyond epic and paired with these wall sconces has me all giddy.

Interior designers Carolina Gentry and Beth Dotolo are the founders of Pulp Design Studio’s based in Texas and Seattle, and having met them in Italy the pair won me over before I’d even clapped eyes on their designs. This Palm Springs inspired bathroom they created for the DXV Design Panel and was seen in publications such as Wallpaper, Architectural Digest and Vanity Fair.

I’m on my soap box again today and talking colour! I’m on a mission to wedge it into every room in your home and bathrooms are not getting off the hook! This time of year all the big paint brands are launching their new colours and I’m thrilled to reveal that @toppstiles are getting in on the colour loving action having just launched their Tile of the Year campaign. I was thrilled to collaborate with them on this project and be the first to reveal that the hot new hue is… all the squeals…teal! The Lampas Peacock tile is a beautifully rich and deep hue but has a lovely earthy warmth which is just perfect for bathrooms. Team with must-have brass taps, a pink sink and some rather eclectic styling, including this up cycled mid century modern sideboard and you have all the ingredients for something rather fabulous. My design tips include taking the colour all the way around the room for the full immersive impact, but pop a lighter tile above to keep the overall effect bright. Could you go all-out for colour in the bathroom, I’d love to know! . This post is part of a paid partnership with Topps Tiles. You can read more about this bathroom design, over on my website, the link is in my profile @sophierobinsoninteriors . . . #interiorstrends #colourlover #banthebeige #toppstiles #bathroom #bathroominspiration #teal #tileoftheyear #thinkyouknowtoppstiles #midcenturymodern #vintageinterior #eclecticdecor #jungalowstyle #darkdecor #colourmyhome #interiorstrends

I just can’t take my eyes off this colourful bathroom that Sophie Robinson designed for Topps Tiles. Glossy and bold saturated colour it’s a win-win.

Someone who’s motto seems to be “go bold, or go home” is Designer Kelly Wearstler, she’s not afraid of colour or using materials in unexpected ways. I feel it’s like looking at a fashion runway show, you know that those bum revealing trousers (famously by Alexander McQueen) won’t be worn by many and certainly not down a street in Tunbridge Wells, but elements and inspiration will eventually filter down to the high street. Her love of coloured marbles has had a directional impact on bathrooms particularly with stronger saturated faux marble tiles. The very definition of an influencer.

This I actually want to do this paint effect in my own home. Unfortunately, my bathroom isn’t quite as large so I think the impact may be lost. It’s so calm though. Not sure where all my bottles and options would go though, maybe on the floor?

Another deceptively simple design for this black bathroom that is modest in size, not dissimilar to the kind of bathroom sizes we have in the UK’s Victorian housing stock. I think the pattern floor makes the world of difference here.

Looking for a silver finish which is warmer than chrome and has a rich aged effect? Then #Antique #Nickel is your best ally. It works just as well in modern spaces as in retro interiors. Case in point : our double Locky vanity basin against this beautiful green background. . . . . . . . . . . #drummondsbathrooms #antiquenickel #nickelfinish #luxurybathrooms #marblevanity #luxuryvanity #retrobathroom #luxurydesign #luxurylifestyle #bespokemakers #bespokebathroom #traditionalcraft #traditionalbathroom #chelseadesignquarter #designmatters #designtrends #homedecor #homeinspo #luxuryhomes #luxurydecor #interiordesign #greenbathroom #marblebathrooms #luxurywash #luxurybathing #classicbathroom

It’s a stunning bathroom no two ways about that. But I have as much love and inspiration in the form of white bathrooms too.

Bathroom goals 💯 #TheHoxtonParis

A post shared by The Hoxton (@thehoxtonhotel) on

Instagram my favourite bathroom inspiration, so what do you think? Do any of these get you all in a dither? Any that you think hell-no, absolutely no way? There are elements in all of these that I love but I think some of them might have a very marmite reaction and it’s just a good to know what you don’t like. That way you can make informed choices. If you could possibly be looking for more bathroom inspiration check out my favourite black taps and those lovely tiles from Cersaie.

The treat for those of you who’ve read all the way to the end is this gorgeous tile that I’ve had my eye on. Now if I could just find this in the UK and remortgage my house, it would be in my bathroom I tell you.
