My Dream Bathroom

My Dream Bathroom to pin

After terrifying Anthony with a vision of my perfect kitchen, today I'm posting about my dream bathroom. Even in dream world realism reigns - any bathroom I own is likely to be tiny, so it will be important to make it as light as possible. Without settling for a white suite, obviously. Say hello to pink:

pink bath, sink and toilet

I'd have pink tiles on the lower walls, a band of powder blue, then white on the upper half - except for the bath wall which would get blue with a band of pink:

pink, blue and white tiles

Wrap around shower curtain rails are the best, especially when they're supporting shower curtains like this one - flamingos with a splash of avocado. It wouldn't be a bathroom without it.

You need a little cabinet to store all the essentials. Check out how awesome this one is:

The best thing about liking retro style now is that you can have the old fashioned look, and the comfort of modern technology. With that in mind it would be heated towel rails all the way. Towels would come in His, Hers, Baby's and Guest varieties:

heated towel rail and towel bundles in blue, pink, green and white

Then there are those other essentials, like the shower shelves and the loo brush holder. I really like the idea of having one of these little space saving slide-out cupboards too, to store the extra toilet paper rolls, etc.

Finally the kitschy finishing touches:

Alternatively, we could just take a leaf out of Marianna's book and set up a bathtub in the front room...

  1. I'd have to go with a white suite nothing coloured I'm afraid - I've removed so many avocado suites in my time (3!) so couldn't even contemplate putting another coloured one in! But I'll concede in the right place they can look good, but that's not in my bathroom :) #homeetc

    1. Aw, no! I can't watch any of those daytime property shows because they're always going in and ripping out all the 'cool' stuff to paint it all white, lol. I think my OH is kind of hoping we're going to rent forever so I can't go and salvage any of them. :)

  2. I have to say I'm a white-suite only girl too! I did recently see a bathroom with on period pink bathroom suite on RightMove and did look quite cool. I do, however, have fond memories of my Sindy bath! #HomeEtc

    1. I was totally born in the wrong era, I just find the modern aesthetic for interiors really bland. My OH would be happy if we could paint everything white like a hospital though. They do say opposites attract! :)

  3. oh gosh don't get me started on bathrooms! I've wanted new bathrooms in our house since we moved in! Our suite is a horrible sicky green colour and I HATE it! My suite would be pure white, sparkling white. A dark carpet (can't have a bright carpet - I have boys) and plenty of storage. Oooh just thought... under floor heating, power shower... I could go on forever! ;)

    1. Oh, under floor heating would definitely be good! I love the green suites - my heart is stuck in the 70s, a time I never even knew... lol :)

  4. Aaah I blooming LOVE you!!!!

    I totally love people that have such a clear vision of how they like things — particularly when they don't conform to the norm!!!! :) Just fabulous.

    You would have LOVED my mum and dad's old bathroom. They had your dream bathroom suite!!! 'Camay' pink — with matching pink and white 70s tiles! LOL!!! Thanks so much for linking up with us! #HomeEtc

    1. Aw, thank you! :)

      I know it shouldn't, but that just sounds so great!! :D I really like the avacado and orange combo too, but it might be a bit much to actually live with - one of my upcoming doll house projects is a 70s house though so guess what they're getting, hehe.

    1. Yeah, I think my *dream* dream bathroom would be one of those huge palatial bathrooms with the works - jacuzzi and everything :)

  7. Wow that is a retro bathroom you want. I'm a fan of the bright, clean, modern look Im afraid. You would love the bathroom we have in our rented house! Thanks for linking to #PickNMix

    1. Hehe, it really is! The bathroom we have is just white, white, white but it's so boring.

    2. #making home - loving that shower curtain! Very funky. My bathroom is just boring. Black and white but I do have an upcycled cupboard in green to help it.

  8. It's so refreshing to see someone who loves something other but I'm afraid I am also a fan of the white. I'm of *that* age when I remember pink, green and all sorts of other duck egg coloured suites. These days, I prefer those colours as accents, rather than the main event ;-) Sue #MakingHome

  9. Oh My pink! I'm sure you would find one in salvage, or ask for one on freecycle lol. I have had advocado and champagne but now it's white. I can always add colour with decorations and keep my suite white. #makinghome

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou

50 Free Welsh Language Resources

Unlike literacy and maths, Welsh really isn't a subject we'll be using everyday without a concerted effort to do so. Every morning we've been doing three Duolingo lessons with Marianna - challenging for me and repetition of basic words and concepts for her - and then watching a couple of Welsh language cartoons to listen to the rhythm of the words and so on. Here is a list of free Welsh language resources from around the web, ranging from GCSE revision guides to adult basics to children's cartoons uploaded to YouTube. Hopefully you'll be able to mix and match to suit your own needs over the next few weeks and months. (I'd normally direct people to places like Sain Wales to buy hard copy media, but they're closed for the duration and we should try to lighten the load on the postal service to essentials besides.)
