Soft ’n dreamy

Ren­o­va­tors Ash­leigh and Brett Holmes of Port El­iz­a­beth de­signed a ro­man­tic open-plan en-suite bath­room that’s beau­ti­ful and bud­get-savvy. In­stead of in­vest­ing in ex­pen­sive long-length or cus­tom-made cur­tains, they draped sheer fab­ric over a cur­tain rail po­si­tioned close to the ceil­ing to cre­ate the same ef­fect. “The fab­ric re­ally soft­ens the room,” says Ash­leigh. In­stead of towel rails, the cou­ple opted for a coat­stand. “We got this one from Colo­nial An­tiques for just R600. To add some green­ery to the space, we hung a macrame planter on one of the hooks. This is a nifty way to hang plants if you don’t want to drill holes into your ceil­ing or wall.”
