If you remember blissful holidays in Cornwall, exploring quaint fishing villages and gazing out at the boats bobbing up and down in the harbour then our maritime-inspired look might be just the thing if you’re looking to give your bathroom a new look. There are some easy ways to transform your bathroom, at a budget to suit you.
The simplest way to start is with soft, sumptuous towels and bath mats. Nautical stripes, such as my favourite John Lewis Coastal Stripe Dune towels, bring instant impact. Or go for these quirky and kitsch New Coastal Seaside towels.
If neither of these ‘float your boat’ perhaps a more striking stripe with sea blues and sand colours with bath mats to match would suit. The John Lewis Coastal bath mat goes equally well with sandy coloured towels.
If you’re looking to push the boat out more there’s nothing more fitting than our attractive range of St Ives bathroom furniture. Pristine white with a fresh, coastal feel, the range is characterised by beautiful detailing, clean edges and panelled wood. Made from rubberwood it’s extremely durable, with a water-resistant lacquer for extra protection. Go for coordinated accessories: our John Lewis York bathroom accessories have a classic understated elegance about them - just right for a New England bathroom.
Make a statement with a shower curtain: this John Lewis shower curtain, with its waffle stripe, has a nautical theme with blue and white stripes providing a hint of seaside freshness. It also features anti-rust eyelets and is machine washable.
The finer details complete the look. The New England gifting collection is full of maritime paraphernalia you can fill your bathroom with. I love these pebble candles! This John Lewis White Rope Open Top Box is perfect for all those bathroom bits and pieces. Why not fill with natural sea sponges for a smart, decorative look?
Finally, a couple of necessities: a linen bin, and this handsome John Lewis willow oval laundry bin is made using the full willow stem rather than splitting this ensures durability. It also gives it a lovely finish.. With a white removable liner it’s easy to keep fresh and looking new. And this functional yet funky John Lewis traditional mechanical scale completes the look.
