Homeowners keen to add a touch of Marie Antoinette glamour to their bathroom suites may wish to consider a white and marble scheme in the smallest room.
According to Laura Casey Interiors, the water closet can be transformed into a fresh, bright and regal-feeling space with bleached woods, dazzling porcelains and glittering fixtures.
And although as a material it may not be snow-white, marble can be a subtle way of adding colour to the bathroom, as flecks of muted colours and shining geological details can add texture to an otherwise stark space.
The website suggests that white bathroom suites could be just as timeless as all-white kitchens and used examples of potted plants, claw-foot tubs and translucent curtains or blinds as ways to make the water closet more personal.
The vintage look may work well in a bleach-bright bathroom and Dear Designer author Carole King recommended keeping an eye out for unwanted items that – with a touch of spit and polish – could make statement pieces.
