50 shades of grey... bathrooms

A couple of weeks ago, Tom and I finally ordered a new kitchen, after three years of living with the green kitchen, wonky cupboards, and three layers of tiles (yep - every time the previous owner decided he wanted new tiles in the kitchen, he just tiled over the old ones!) So much in our house feels botched or done on the cheap (our conservatory for example, which leaks and has a wonky floor) so it's going to be amazing to finally have a room in the house that feels completely 'us', with nothing inherited from the previous owner's bad attempts at DIY.

We've gone for quite a modern kitchen, and after much deliberation, decided on grey high gloss kitchen cabinets, with a black worktop.  I hadn't really considered grey as an option for a kitchen (or really any room in the house) before, but now it's ordered I can't wait to see what it looks like.  Although it's going to cost a fair amount of money, being able to order the new kitchen and plan it all exactly how we'd like it has made me realise quite how easy it is to modernise a room, and has me dreaming of sorting our bathroom next - peach walls and more pine cladding than a Swedish ski lodge is what it currently looks like, and I'd love something more contemporary.

So, when CP Hart asked me to share with my readers what my dream 'grey' bathroom would look like, I immediately hopped over to Pinterest and started pinning, as well as having a good old nose of  their website.  You can see more grey bathroom inspiration via the #cphart50shades tag and their own board.

My dream bathroom would look something like this - a grey tiled wall and floor and a huge freestanding bath.  Our bathroom is fairly small so we'd want to keep it quite simple and classic.

I absolutely adore the Victoria and Albert Amalfi bath on their website, it looks like the perfect bathtub to lay back and have a soak in.  I can imagine whiling away quite some time in there with a book and some candles burning.


I also love this Alumix bowl, plus look at that space below it, perfect for stashing all of your toiletries away!


And here's another rather lovely grey bathroom as some food for thought - if my bathroom were this lovely I think you'd have to drag me kicking and screaming out after bathtime!

When the time comes to start on our bathroom (I must wait until we've paid off our kitchen, I must wait until we've paid off our kitchen...) I'll definitely be hitting up CP Hart for bathroom inspiration, and maybe one of their gorgeous baths if I save my pennies! If you'd like to see more of what they do, you can look for your nearest showroom, or they also have a professional site for trade orders and bathroom planning.

  1. I am a huge fan of grey as a neutral in most rooms! I can't wait to move into our own house (very soon, hopefully!) and a lot of my pins on pinterest seem to be based around grey - with pops of colour and accessories to add colour as well as interest! I just think it's a really great base for a room, and not as boring as magnolia!! xxx

  3. How exciting on your new kitchen - I'm sure you can't wait!

    I really like grey interiors at the moment - I think it very elegant, and timeless, but more exciting than sticking with plain whites.

    Your pin choices are wonderful - I adore the last bath pin - you could swim in it!

  4. I adore grey interiors. We actually painted our sons room grey and it looks amazing if I do say so myself. With a white cot and draws and other accessories it really looks great. I've never thought to have grey in a kitchen or bathroom though but I'm really liking the idea. I cannot wait to see your final kitchen.

  6. Our bathroom was pine when we moved in and we got some special paint for wood from B&Q and painted over it and now it looks really nice. It's grey! Tweet me if you want some photos!

  8. I'm well into grey around anywhere in the house actually. Really liking the look of that first bath, I was recently in a hotel which had one similar shaped but wooden!
