About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children.

How are you with paint effects? What about painting it to match your (gorgeous, might look at this myself for the bathroom)floor? I love distressing things (as my hubby will testify!!). You could add some sea glass style knobs.



My 3 kids have decided without argument...yellow for your cabinet. they can justify their decision apparently because it means you will always have the sun in your home!

so...yellow. "super summer sunshine"


sash!!! you can always put a lock on the bottom half to stop the little people falling out!! One of the reasons I bought my house (Edwardian terrace) is because the original sash windows were still in place - they only become a pain when they get really old and won't open easily - but new ones would be great!! Re bathroom cabinet - I always love Farrow and ball's blue grey for woodwork - but that really depends on what you do with the walls!!! a wonderful little shop here in Norwich,has a wonderful selection of ceramic door knobs, cream with a choice of coloured dots on them - they would look fab on the cupboard doors!!!

Good luck - what lovely decisions!!

OOH! I ordered lots of those lovely stripey samples a few weeks ago! I can't stop fondling them they're so delicious! Am desperately trying to find a use so I can justify buying a few metres!
Re. cupboard. ANY of the colours in that delicious bath mat! A pity they don't do a giant one for the sitting room too! t.x


I know it sounds boring but WHITE is my vote.


Turquoise maybe ???


Sky blue like your shelf! I love that colour. But sunshine yellow sounds good as well!
You think you're slow with your bathroom - I'm still waiting for ours to be done and we've been here over 10 years, still got the yukky pink units and cracked toilet LOL


I think the cabinet should be one of the colours in your mat (not all of them... control yourself and choose one! lol) and then do the cabinet in stipes using the chosen hot colour, seaglass aqua, white and cream and a thin stripe of the sky blue! with white ceramic knobs!

Oh how I dream of a nice bathroom!

What a gorgeous, sunny bathroom! I'm a first-time commenter but couldn't stay quiet since I'm an interior designer. ;) I love both the top and bottom fabrics and vote for a RED cabinet! With some sparkly new hardware! I love the combination of aqua and red. And I'm also loving your new socks. :)


sexy pink is so lovely with aqua, it's a dulux colour and makes you feel all happy and bright,

you'll love it!

Hi Lucy,

I would say go with 'victorian sash' they look amazing and very in keeping!

Also colour hhhmmmm, maybe turquoise something bluey and sea like, but not something dumbed down as I'm guessing that wouldn't go with your personality though you could choose a colour from your new rug to link it it - ohhhh that is a toughie and I'm sure your make the right decision! Though failing that lot's and lot's of tester pots.

Have a lovely day,

Blue to match the shelf! Or a sand-yellow. Love the stripes, wish they were available across the pond.

I love the striped rug and pom-poms. Why not do the cabinet in a weathered grey driftwood sort of finish. It would compliment the floors nicely. Little shells for knobs would be nice....


Top fabric, hot pink for the cabinet, and definately, definately sash windows. A must. Worth the expense, and will look fabby doo dah in your new bathroom and your beautiful victorian home.

yellow-y, to match the starfish in the photo above the cabinet. Kind of a pale maize shade, I believe....

rachel whitworth

Oh Lucy,that bathmat is so you!I think the same colour as your shelf for your cabinet.Love the flooring,lino is amazing these days.We need to do our bathroom floor so I'm off to look at the Rhinofloor.Thanks for the link!

blue to go with the shelf I would do. Love that flooring and the stripy mat is so cheerful with the pompoms. What fun.


Sky blue to match the shelves. I think it would look very bright and cheery. Love the bathmat! xxx


I'd go for the sky blue too. The stripes for the curtains and the bath carpet would be sufficient as color. You can pic one of the stripes colors for the nobs or dotted ones ; )


That particular shade of blue is my favorite color--so I think you can guess what I'd say about the cabinet! K x

Mmmmmmmm, this is delicious. I feel like I've just had a vacation at the beach. I sure do love a beach-y look in a room. So refreshing!

Shelley in SC

Oh, and if you're going to paint the walls some shade of aqua/blue, I would go for a contrasting color . . . pick one of the bold colors out of the floor mat and let it make a statement!

Shelley in SC

(speaking of the cabinet in the post above)


Go for the blue or a bright sunny yellow...

Love everything you have done in here so far - and agree with most - definately sash windows :)


I think red for the cabinet. That bathmat is lush!
