Consider the time you last stayed at a luxury hotel or dined at a upscale restaurant. You make your way into the washroom and are suddenly filled with warmth and glee as your eyes scan the printed tiles, the warm lighting and the perfectly folded towels.
You slowly peruse the facilities and then rush back to tell your friend she has to go to the loo.
A pretty bathroom can lure you right out of bed, give you a boost and even kickstart your creativity.
We turn to Pinterest and the very talented blogosphere, to see how to bring a little 5-star luxury into our own personal powder rooms.
