We’re embarking down the route of buying a new house. Well, for me my first house. We’ve found a house, fallen in love and right now we’re keeping our fingers crossed that everything goes to plan, but in the mean time I am dreaming about what I’ll do to whatever home we eventually buy. You can see all my other housey posts here
I am planning a nautical bathroom for our dream home and I’ve enlisted the help of the perfect partner in crime in my dad too – here is a man who is a member of a royal yacht club (amongst others), has anchor buttons on his blazer, saves our old sails for me to craft with and knows every knot possible. He’s the man who taught me to sail so I know he’ll help me naut-ify the room a treat.

The problem I’ll have is knowing to stop before it looks like a chandlery rather than a bathroom. I have a boat shelving until procured my mum from an auction but would the cleat loo roll holder be too much? Or a blind made of an old sail? How about creating a fake porthole?
And In a dream world I’d have a bathtub that is also a boat. I’ve shown the pictures to my dad, I’ve done my best ‘daaaaaaaaaddy’ and I think he might be figuring out how to make me one. I don’t even take baths (I’m a shower fan) but this would make me so happy.

What do you think, can you go overboard on a nautically themed bathroom? (sorry, did I take that too far?)
