I was so happy to see that one of the décor trend predictions for 2018 is neutral metallics. Don’t you just love the whole look? I really wanted to incorporate some of that into our little holiday home.

When we originally bought our round house she was only 31 m² small big.  That’s about 330 ft². Just enough space for a bathroom, bedroom and an open plan, kitchenette lounge area that doubled up as a second bedroom.

Our little round house

We saved like mad until we could afford to build a second floor and a patio. One of the things that always bugged me about our little holiday home was that it only had one bathroom. When I’m on holiday I love getting up really early and soaking in the bath for a few hours. Me time ๐Ÿ˜‰ But that made it difficult when someone wanted to go to the loo. They either had to do their business outside, or I needed to get out of the bath. So the first thing we added when we went up was a tiny bathroom.

Building work in progress

It’s only 850 cm wide and 1.9 meters long (1.62 m² or 17.38 ft²). Just big enough for a toilet, shower and a small basin. The bathroom is so small you have to get into the shower to open the door ๐Ÿ˜€ I originally wanted a sliding door but because the walls are curved it wasn’t an option. Have you ever tried decorating or fitting things into a tiny room with two curved walls? But I think we managed to pulled it off.

What do you think? And it all started with a little help from an angel ๐Ÿ˜‰

As luck would have it, I stumbled across this painting I’d done two years ago of a semi-nude angel. Yeah, I literally stumbled over the portrait while trying to tidy up our craft room ๐Ÿ˜‰

It's not your imagination, sometimes a ‘coincidence’ comes with a lot of angelic effort. Click to Tweet

It was the first full body portrait I’d ever completed and like all “wanna be” artists I really wanted to hang him up somewhere, but I could never find the right spot. He seemed to fit the neutral metallics trend quite nicely, so he became the focal point in our tiny bathroom.

Old lantern

Everyone needs a sexy angel looking over their shoulder when they go to the loo, right ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ideas For Incorporating Neutral Metallics in a Tiny Bathroom

The copper leaf on the angel’s wings and silvery, grey body tones meant that I could play around with all kinds of metallics. Like using that old rake hanging on the right hand side to hang the towels. There’s also a narrow, rusty little shelf on the wall that holds extra loo paper and a copper candle to light the way.

A small rusty shelf

And this lantern that we found on a rubbish dump, which the hubby converted into a bathroom light. He’s a very clever man, that hubby of mine.

Sheet metal door

We added sheet metal on the back of the door to mimic the look of an outhouse. The sheet metal was just cut to size and screwed onto the door. Nothing says neutral metallics like sheet metal ๐Ÿ˜€

Slate floors

We tiled the shower floor with glass pebbles and left over bits of slate. We have lots of bits from making our slate serving boards. Did you notice the galvanized watering can in the previous photo? That’s the shower head. The hubs made that for us too ๐Ÿ˜‰ He’s not good with taking fotos of every step though. Probably because he was hanging like a monkey from the ceiling trying to get the shower head up. Sorry about that. He used a flexible stainless steel hose and silicone to attach a shower head to the watering can’s spout and then hung the whole contraption from the roof.

Watering can shower head

Don’t you just love the contrast between the galvanized metal of the watering can and the natural thatch on the roof? And finally, a little silver kitty on the floor that reminds us that we have purr babies angels waiting for us at home.
