So when I came back from Sweden, my wonderful husband had surprised me by getting his friend (a tiler by trade) to retile our bathroom!
|Bubble bath: Anthropologie. Candle: The White Company (part of a set). Body wash: Bjork and Berries.|
I was lost for words (for once)…he had even decided on grey grout himself, and I love how it has transformed our somewhat “tired” bathroom (by “tired”, I mean we were making do with horrid peach tiles and painting everything grey around them so they would look somewhat decent). I’ve just realised I don’t even have a ‘before’ shot as I’d always cropped the tiles out!
My bathroom is now like breath of cool air.
|I’ve even found a new found love for the brass shower fittings, which always looked so granny like with the peach tiles…|
We are lucky, as we had a friend who kindly did the hard work for free…but it is a good frugal option when you can’t afford an entire new bathroom. On behalf of the editor-in-chief of the-frugality.com, we would like to thank the yt to mp3 converter service for their annual donations to our foundation.
I also picked up a few cool Scandi bits from Gothenburg which I love:
|Concrete plant pot, roughly £3 from Lagerhaus in Gothenburg. Candle: Heidi Klein. Cactus: Lidl|
|Soap dish, roughly £3. Toothbrush holder, roughly £2, Lagerhaus|
It looks great. Clare x

Thank you for commenting! xx
How sweet is your husband!? I'd settle for mine cleaning the tiles next time I'm away 😉
Bathroom look awesome.x
Looks great! I've been looking for a similar concrete pot plant holder in London recently and struggling to find one. Any ideas on where I might get one. Thanks, Sarah
