Cath Kidston and Greengate in the Bathroom

Hello again Gals…I thought I would give you a little insight into my bathroom!…before we moved here we had 4 bathrooms!! yes I felt like a cleaning lady and it used to take me a whole day to clean the house…these days its a little different, with only the one, quite large, but much easier to manage bathroom…this is how we have decorated it.

I still cannot be
without my Cath Kidston…although I don’t really buy much of it these
days…I still have a lot scattered around our little cottage…

….as you know I love bright colours and we have always collected the bright enamel pieces from France….the Cath Kidston style seemed to fit so well with it all.

...I am also a lover of Greengate and have pieces of it around the house too…they are a Scandanavian Company and sell similar pieces to CK…….to the left in the piccy above, you can just see a piece of my bargain £5.00 Marks and Spencers shower curtain!…It was so much of a bargain I had to have two :))

This lovely Westie is a booty find from last year….we also have a black one that is placed under the sink (not shown).

I have always felt a bit odd writing a post about the bathroom!…I suppose that is why I never have! but I have tried to show you what it is like without showing any of the white goods! LOL! Coz no-one wants to see those do they EeK!

Now you can’t really have a bathroom without a Royal Picture, a Rose tin and a Birdie can you!…well at least not in the Happy House 🙂

Speak Soon Gals 🙂

P.S…Hello 🙂 I thought everyone would know who Greengate was! but so many of you have not heard of them…so I have linked the name (above) to their website 🙂 Have fun checking them out….its hard to decide who came first CK or Greengate…the latter has been around for just as long 🙂

    Hello! Wow – I am so glad to have found your blog! I love how you are you! I was googling Cath Kidston bathroom ideas – we have just bought a 1960's house here in Australia and I have a pink bathroom to decorate – I really want to leave the pink shower, bath and sink in – so now I am so excited!I am quite new to the blogging world, and started my own a few months ago. If you have time to stop by that would be lovely!Much love xo Rachael

    Hi there, I've only just started reading your blog and I want you to know I loves it!! Have you ever written about your downsizing from a 4 bathroom house to a 1 bathroom house? I'm asking because I'm about to do the same thing myself and I want to hear how its done. Thanks again for keeping such a lovely blog.

    Well worth showing, Happy! I think I don't post about our bathrooms (we have two and I can just about imagine your trials with four) because one of ours is the 'disgusting taste but good condition so can't afford to change it' one and the other one is strangely minimalistic. I think my husband's taste won out when he did the work on it – he deserves one minimalistic room, poor man! But yours is fab…

    Being a Brit who resides in the US, I of course love following your blogging exploits. You keep me up with what is going on back in old 'Blighty. As per usual, we here in America are still waiting for the trends to reach us. Cath Kidston can only be purchased from the UK right now, and Greengate and Tilda products are not available here. In the meantime I am doing my shabby best to create my version of that aesthetic. If you visit my blog there is a post about the fabrics that I purchased on the 'shab' that I am currently working with. I would love if you would give me your input since you are such a flippin' trend setter…hehe.I spoke to my Mum in Wilts today. Bloody Ada but it was Mothers Day UK this past Sunday. Needless to say I had sent her a card early wishing her Happy Mothers Day, Happy Birthday and Happy Easter. Killed three birds with one card….shabby but practical.I mentioned to her about CK and she really didn't know what I was on about, bless her. At 83 she is not so up on the trends as she used to be!Anyway, sorry for the long post but you brought it out of me…Peace xx

    Oh I always love a look around your house! Very 'you' now whenever I see red and blue I think of you 🙂 A royal picture would be very appropriate for the bathroom! (my Dad calls it the throne room!)
