I recently found myself in possession of a spare £50 in the piggy bank so I set myself a challenge of updating and refreshing a room for no more than the fifty.
I like to change accessories on a regular basis so spending a little money now and then isn’t a big chunk out of our budget. I pick items that look more expensive than they are – don’t we all – and I find Tesco is a great place to do this!
I chose the most neglected room in the house…. our downstairs toilet.
It is a pretty decent, well lit, good sized area. 3 walls painted magnolia and a feature wall of vivid royal blue (Fired Earth – Jubilee Blue). The toilet and hand basin are white porcelain and are accented with royal blue mosaic tiles for the splash back. The floor is Teak parquet flooring.
The thing I love the most about Tesco Direct is that for the majority of items can be purchased online and delivered to a local store ready for collection the next day. Perfect!
With nautical being a key trend right now, I am jumping on the bandwagon and bringing a little touch of that to the smallest room!
At an Easter Saturday trip to Masham we found a brilliantly topical print from Stephen Cocker which, once framed, will go up above the loo. It’s very tongue in cheek but with 3 cats it seemed quite apt no?

Yes, I went back to the 90s with pot pourri! I wanted something visual to sit on top of the unit and scent the room without overpowering the room with the door closed but after a few nasty run ins with leaky reed diffusers and painted surfaces, I went for a vase presentation. I did in the end find an ‘ocean breeze’ diffuser I had won in a charity tombola (£2.99 from B&M) so added that because I hate to say it but cheap scents don’t last that long so I might as well use it up.
