How to Truly Optimise a Small House

Posted on 16 Sep, 2019

It can be a challenge to decorate a small space and can seem like quite a difficult interior design job - but it doesn’t have to be!

The rise of luxurious, hotel-style bathrooms dominated with stone, natural materials and neutral colours have pushed themed bathrooms out of style, but in recent years they have seen a reprise. 

In 2019, a bathroom based on a theme is seen as a way to inject personality and even a touch of fantasy into a room that can often be plain and is usually focused on practicality.
