Objects Of Design #166: Clawfoot Bath

Paint your bath in any colour you fancy

This is the stereotpyical luxury bath. Many of you might prefer something a little more modern but if you have the space, the great thing about this one is that you can paint it in any colour you choose. I recently styled a friend’s bathroom with a bath like this in shocking pink, with black and white floral wallpaper and white painted floorboards. The joy of going monochrome round the edges is that you can just repaint the bath in any colour you fancy if you get bored.
