Objects Of Design #169: Sicily Wall Cabinet

Add a splash of colour to your bathroom

I have come late to the colour purple and I find I rather like it. Indeed I have used it in my own bathroom (Pelt Farrow & Ball for anyone who’s interested).

My purple bathroom

So, back to the cabinet. This has rather pleasing curves and a couple of glass shelves inside for all those lotions and potions that don’t look pretty enough to be on display. For those of you who don’t fancy aubergine (to give it its proper name) it also comes in white and stone. £99

  1. Absolutely love your bathroom, that is something else! Very stylish!

    Me too, have come to purple late in life and am starting to team it with silver grey in my bedroom. It’s an ongoing process…

    1. Hi Lona, sorry for not replying sooner, I have been away. Thank you for your kind comments on the bathroom. I do really enjoy being in there. Do send some pictures of your purple and grey bedroom – it sounds amazing.
