Maryam from My Marrakesh has the mammoth task of fitting out 12, yes 12, bathrooms in her guesthouse currently under construction. She’s asked us for some inspiration and we’ve come up with a few ideas. Key words for bathrooms on the cheap – colour, rendered walls, repurposed vintage furniture, tiles where necessary and unusual wallcoverings (sealed of course).

P.S. These were some quick ideas thrown together. Hope you like them Maryam. I’m craving indoor outdoor bathrooms with plunge baths and open air showers. Very spa like and organic. Think Balinese resort but with Moroccan twist. Ahhhh to dream!
Lisa, a loyal lurker from Canberra, Australia sent me the link to this 70’s time capsule. What do you think? Is this the home of a little old groover hanging on to the past or is it the lair of a hard core retro buff? Either way it is an amazing trip back in time. Love it all!!!!!
WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we think you’ll like to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. It’s a short WINKS this time. I’m up to my eyeballs in UFOs (unfinished objects) and the weekend list of jobs to do is huge!
Thought I’d show you what is going on in my new place. First let me say that the carpet is going. YUK!!!!! I have ordered a room size coir rug. Everything here is thrifted, bought on etsy, found in secondhand shops or through retro dealers except the screen which is from an interior design student exhibition from my university days. This is not how the room will look, just an idea. Wait till you see the travertine, chrome and glass coffee table I have coming. I’m going for a Wary-Meyers retro boho look with lime green, navy and a clash of chrome and gilt. I am trying to pull this all together on a strict budget and with mainly thrifted finds because a)I want to show that it can be done, b)I believe in reuse and recycling and c) I’m broke at the moment!
