Interior design has long been inspired by regal abodes and lifestyles, with the grandeur of palaces the world over filtering down into the most luxurious hotels, spas and homes.
While not everybody has the disposable income to live like a king nor necessarily the inclination to opt for floor-to-ceiling opulence in their own home, the regal look can work wonderfully as a stand-alone statement or in subtle, sparkly touches throughout.
For centuries, the colour purple has been associated with royalty and what better time than 2018 for ultraviolet to be unveiled as the Pantone Colour of the Year! Prepare to be dazzled by some vibrant examples of this vivid hue being used in the kitchen and bathroom, Purple Reigns.
If there’s one room in the house where you can go to town with palatial décor, it’s the bathroom, so we’ve rounded up some breathtakingly beautiful fixtures and fittings that will make this space truly splendid, The Royal Treatment.
We also shine a spotlight on double basin vanity units guaranteed to provide a romantic bathroom experience fit for a royal couple, from those inspired by past eras to the latest in modern- day luxury, Focus on Elegant Double Vanities.
Keeping it regal, we catch up with the queen of interior design, TV presenter Linda Barker, who wants to make 2018 the year of the bathroom, In the Spotlight.
