A few carefully selected items can really make a difference when you want to update a room in your home. This month, we look at the bathroom and how you can make it a luxurious haven. Think timeless and minimal – we think you’ll love these Scandinavian design touches.
Mette Ditmer, ‘Brick’ towel
The Brick towel series, by Danish brand Mette Ditmer, has a graphic herringbone pattern woven into the fabric structure, so the pattern becomes a relief detail on the surface. The style and colours create a beautifully integrated and serene look in your bathroom.
Mette Ditmer, ‘Brick’ guest towel (35x55cm), two pack, approx. £16
Mette Ditmer, ‘Brick’ standard towel (50x95cm), approx. £14
Mette Ditmer, ‘Brick’ bath towel (70x133cm), approx. £28

Zone Denmark, ‘Ume’ soap dispenser
Add a touch of Scandinavian minimalism with a few new decorative items. Ume is the Japanese word for plum tree and a symbol of elegance, patience and strength. The series by Zone Denmark is inspired by the letter ‘U’, giving it both a modern and classical personality with exquisite and functional details. Available in five colours: black, grey, white, nude and this season’s deep maroon red.
Zone Denmark, ‘Singles’ tray, black, £39.95
Zone Denmark, ‘Singles’ tray, mud, £49.95
Zone Denmark, ‘Ume’ soap dispenser, £34.95
Zone Denmark, ‘Ume’ toothbrush mug, £17.95
Tangent GC, ‘TGC106’ tulip organic soap
A new soap bottle can work wonders, not only via its look but also with the lovely smell it can give the bathroom. TGC106 tulip is a perfumed, organic soap crafted with pure vegetable oils. Imagine, if you will, the freshly harvested bouquet: still cool from outdoors, with close-fitting petals and watery stalks that make a slight squeaking sound when handled. Now, who doesn’t want their bathroom to feel like that?
Tangent GC, ‘TGC106’ tulip organic soap, £18

Vipp, pedal bin
The pedal bin from Vipp was not created in the strictly traditional sense, but got its visual expression in response to a series of functional criteria – one being a pedal for hands-free operation. Designed by Dane Holger Nielsen in 1939, this bin has become an international design icon.
Vipp, 13 pedal bin (4L), £189
Vipp, 11 toilet brush, £149
