These are the images being pinned like crazy this week
One of this year’s biggest trends has been concrete bathrooms – and we don’t see your love for all things concrete slowing down any time soon. In this rustic, concrete Cornwall cottage, concrete is matched with back-to-nature textures such as the wide, wooden sink. The oversized bathtub was originally created for use as an animal trough, but it works brilliantly as a bath. The trough itself cost under £200 – though it took five men to get it in place. It could have cost four times that amount to have it made.
2. MODERN MURAL
We love a good wall mural. This show-stopping image shows a floor-to-ceiling mural from Tres Tintas. The brave, eye-catching mural dramatically spans the dining room wall from top to toe, and arrived as five huge panels. It’s no wonder it’s one of this week’s most loved pins.

3. MODERN GEOMETRY
Modern wallpaper is a great way to add an instant lift to your dining room. Dress your walls in decisive, modern patterns to create an entertaining space packed with wow-factor and allure. A study was transformed into this bright, companionable dining space. It strikes an elegant but informal note, thanks to a Palm Springs palette and rosewood dining table.

Ever-popular (it’s also one of this year’s top trends), Crittall style translates well in the bathroom, where creating a stylish space that feels both light and open but retains an element of separation is a key objective. Work an industrial aesthetic with classic metro tiles or ramp up the luxe with marble. If you have an unusual-shaped bathroom like this one, go for a custom-made enclosure. If you’re worried about the bathroom looking too industrial, team a natural material like marble with the steel frames to give it a spa vibe.
5. TAKE IT TO THE MAX
Colour in the bathroom has spent too long being confined to accessories and the odd sanitaryware line. But change is afoot. From fearless hue combinations and in-your-face patterns, designers are challenging the norm and exploring the infinite possibilities of maximalism. To master this trend, confidence is crucial – it must be embraced wholeheartedly or not at all. Indulge in shades that bring you the most joy and patterns that speak to your personality. Break all the style rules, except one – try not to suffocate the space. You can achieve this by introducing white areas into your scheme that will offer a dash of light relief.

6. IN THE FRAME
Crittall-style windows are enjoying a moment. In fact, the metal-framed windows – first invented in the 19th century – are so popular, their comeback includes doors and partitions too. Elevate a monochrome scheme with a metal-framed shower panel. Here, it pairs well with the vanity unit. What its basin lacks in depth, it makes up for in width, extending into the shower to create a handy shelf.
