It’s the Queen’s official 90th Birthday month, and here at Heritage, we’re raving about the regal trend. With a history of product inspiration taking notes from palatial surroundings – we adore ornate traditional finishes that take us back to bygone eras.
From our stunning Blenheim suite influenced by English baroque style, to our period-inspired Victoria range, Charlotte Conway discusses regal style – the crowning glory of bathroom design.
The bathroom is the perfect place to incorporate a regal design - and there are many different ways to get your bathroom fit for a king or queen. From little finishing touches to a full redesign, here are some of my top tips to get the royal seal of approval:
Firstly, opulent metals are guaranteed to add a glamorous feel to the bathroom. Rose golds, brass and copper are all bang on trend for the bathroom, and will add a truly high end finish. Team with sumptuous tones of blush and deep yellows for a wow-factor finish.
Next, add some elaborate and ornate accessories. Think grand for this one and bring in a stunning baroque mirror like Heritage Bathrooms’ Chesham Grand to make a real statement. Be sure to dress the space with jewellery inspired finishing touches too such as chandeliers, gem-stone handles, antique photo frames and vases for an elegant finishing touch.
A roll top bath, of course, is the epitome of period glamour and is a great way to add a brand new regal centre point to your bathroom. Why not give it a real royal touch too by selecting a bath like Heritage Bathrooms’ appropriately named Buckingham Cast Iron bath, which comes primed and ready to paint in whatever colour you like – and in celebration of the Queen, we suggest purple.
Finally, embrace timeless designs in your suite to tie the whole look together. High level WCs and console basins are guaranteed to give a vintage and glamorous finish. For this look, we recommend Heritage Bathrooms’ Blenheim and Victoria ranges which take their design cue from their architectural and royal name sakes. Featuring sweeping curves and luxurious lines, these will ensure your bathroom is the epitome of palace-inspired luxe.
