Homes: Wigan house - bathroom In the bathroom, Timorous Beasties’ Thistle wallpaper was the starting point for the design. “I saw the wallpaper in a bar in Manchester and based the rest of the room on it. The look I was going for is rough luxe.” The sink sits on a table that was a junk shop find; Bev found the taps on eBay. “They’re from an old hospital.”
We admit it, ever since spotting it in J.Crew’s Jenna Lyon’s old apartment, we’ve been hooked on herringbone wood floors in the bathroom. It’s hip but homey, riffs off traditional tilework, and just looks that much more special. Keep your stain on the lighter side so that the design is easy to make out.
