It’s been a little while since my last decorating up date. You may remember from my previous decorating diaries postings that I bought my first house at the end of last year, and have been busying trying to make it our own little space.

|Here at Roman at Home one of our favourite bathroom items is the bathroom towel. Picking the perfect towel not only means indulgent bathing, but they can also add to your bathroom design if you pick a coordinating colour. Towels can be a complicated business, so here’s a quick rundown of all you need to know to pick your perfect bathroom linen match…|
What exactly does Egyptian Cotton mean?
Egyptian Cotton Towels have a long thick loop which makes them super absorbent and soft. If you are looking for a luxurious and indulgent towel then Egyptian Cotton is the must have for your bathroom.
They have a long life span and wash well so are very much worth the investment. There are other alternatives available, such as your standard synthetic towels and waffle towels, but these are not as absorbent and have a shorter life span. All towels available from Roman at Home are 100% luxury Egyptian Cotton.
You should aim to allocate each member of the family two bath sheets and two bath towels so that they always have one of each when the other is in the wash. In terms of hand towels, a couple per bathroom is fine.
There is a variety of towel sizes available including:
You will also need guest towels and if you like to show your best side off to visitors, then make sure they are Egyptian Cotton towels.
What Colour to Choose?
This all comes down to the colour scheme and look you are going for in your bathroom.
If you have gone for a traditional bathroom feel and look, then some light blue towels may complement this – they particularly fit in with nautical colour schemes.
If you are trying to achieve a boutique feel, then bright white towels can help to create this – these will complement any bathroom colour scheme whether you have gone dark, light or neutral.
If you prefer neutrals, then choose towels that tone with the tiles, paint or flooring – you can go for soft cream towels or a latte towels for example. These look particularly stunning with travertine and natural stone tiling.
A towel bale makes a perfect wedding gift or new home moving in gift. Treat them to an Egyptian Cotton Towel Bale for the ultimate in luxury.
And finally: Caring for you Towels…
On the 30th of March 2012, Julia Kendell and the team at 60 Minute Makeover went to surprise a single mum in Witham for a home makeover.
Nikki, the mum, had no idea about the makeover of her ex-council house that she bought only a few years ago, but yet hadn’t got the funds or time to do it up.
Julia and the team did a magnificent job in only 60 minutes by decorating the main living area, Nikki’s bedroom and her daughter’s bedroom, Skye. Roman at Home were proud to provide a range of products for the makeover including: Continue reading
There’s a new social networking site that seems to have just exploded onto the scene, and us lot in the Roman at Home team have a confession to make…we’re addicted! It’s called Pinterest. Whether you’ve heard of it or not, we think it’s a trend that is here to stay!
What is Pinterest?
The best way to describe Pinterest is that it’s a kind of online moodboard of things you like. This can be anything from: products for the home, to animals, to recipes, to colours, to fabric, to books. You have different boards, which you can theme and then ‘pin’ things to as you browse the internet. Here’s Roman at Home’s Spring Interiors and Ideas board so you can see the sorts of things we like and that we’ve been ‘pinning’.
At Roman at Home we were fortunate enough to break up for the festive break on the 21st of December. So from the moment I got home all I could think about was the massive task at hand. I must have made my list twice, and checked it three times – I now know how Santa feels with his ‘list’!
I had my Christmas dinner plates all cleaned and now placed safely in the dining room, this was such a relief as my crockery kitchen wall cupboard went on a suicide mission and fell down on the morning of the 23rd. Not quite the way I had the start of my Christmas Holidays planned. Continue reading
