    Brights, brights and more brights – if you’re decorating your bathroom, it’s clear there’s only one way to go this summer. I’ve been flicking through bathroom ideas on housetohome for ideas on how to inject a bit of interest into my largely plain, white bathroom, and it seems like the easiest way to give your WC a little TLC is to go for bright and bold accessories. Great if, like me, you’re renting and therefore can’t crack out the paint.

    Pink to make the boys wink

    This pink bath is number one on my lust list. With the white-painted boards and pale walls, this room allows the real star of the show to shine through. I know pink isn’t to everyone’s tastes, but this idea would work equally well in teal, yellow, orange… whatever colour tickles your fancy.

    Bold colour + texture = gorgeous

    This deep-sided bath is also high up on my bathroom wishlist, coming a close second to the pink number above. The mix of textures and tones of red and orange add a warm, lived-in touch to what could be a rather stark, cold room. Room screens are a great way of adding some privacy to open plan ensuites too – the fretwork on this one makes it a feature in its own right.

    Great idea - why not update an old cabinet?

    Finally, think about using colour in unusual ways, like on the inside of cabinets. This plain cabinet has been brought to life by stencilling on a pattern, then reversing it on the inside – unexpected, and really effective.

    What do you think – which of these is your favourite?
