No bath or bathroom is complete without soap, but this essential can also be used to dress up the space. Opt for bars wrapped in decorative paper and make a display of it on a platter or line up mason jars filled with various coloured varieties. If that sounds like a task, you can always count on designers like Mukul Goyal to come up with witty fittings instead. His Delhi- based label Tattva Hardware retails whimsical soap stands in metal and ceramic combinations ( see right). Another Delhi décor favourite Ishatvam too stocks retro- themed dispensers. Just in case you want a more glamourous option, the retail chain Bathline Sensations as well as international luxury brand Sherle Wagner offer fancy fixtures which are gilded enough for the true bling lovers.
