Orig­i­nal touches

‘This room has such a high ceil­ing that we needed a state­ment light to fill the space. We had to hunt on­line to find some­thing suitable for a bath­room at a rea­son­able bud­get, and this big chan­de­lier fit the bill. The two wall sconces on ei­ther side of the mir­ror are quite sim­ple but have an Art Deco look. Our elec­tri­cian ques­tioned why we wanted the lights on a dimmer, but we love how you can just dim them right down and have a nice re­lax­ing evening.

‘The doilies are my grand­mother’s work. She used to be an amaz­ing knit­ter. She has se­vere Alzheimer’s and my par­ents asked if I’d like to have these. Hav­ing doilies round the house wasn’t what I was go­ing for, but by fram­ing them, it’s an homage to her hard work. They’re like pieces of art.’
