POP UP MY BATHROOM

Single | An Outfit For The Bathroom

How about a little black number? Or perhaps a classic straight-cut three-piece in white? Maybe combined with a natural shade of brown, or would metal appliqués be better? Seriously, though: even in a bathroom showroom, salesmen sometimes need a keen instinct for fashions and people.

A bathroom speaks volumes about its users. Take Thomas, for instance, a spartan type with a simple shower curtain and solitary tooth mug; Kathy next door has a pastel vanity overflowing with tubes, pretty bowls and candle stumps that sometimes migrate to the edge of the bathtub, whereas Margaret downstairs has chosen a turquoise- and-white backdrop for her collection of maritime mementoes. Finally, the mellow sand hues and vintage-style dresser in Alex’s bathroom seem to have come straight out of an interior design magazine.

Singles can indulge their dreams without worrying about other people’s tastes, and are increasingly doing so with an eye to fashionable furnishing trends. Many a bathroom collection embodies a fittingly self-confident lifestyle concept. Even the differentiation between product ranges labelled “Elegance”, “Classic”, “Modern Country” or “Metropolitan” is based not just on interior trends but on the latest developments in fashion as well.

Many singles consciously embrace the up-tothe-minute aspect and thus the principle of permanent change. The recent craze for “white on white”, for instance, now needs a little update – a few contrasting touches in black to keep up with the latest “back to black” trend. And although walnut-coloured wood might still be attractive, it’s nowhere near as trendy as pastel or limed oak. Or bold splashes of colour. And metal accents are particularly in right now – as are emphatically soft forms that can be interpreted with either a retro or futuristic touch.

Fashion and lifestyle trends are moving into the bathroom – which only goes to show how much we have come to see it as living space. We want to feel at home in our bathroom – and put our own very individual stamp on it.
