My bathroom is my sanctuary. I get ready for the day ahead in there, take a shower if I’ve had a stressful one and get ready for a night out.

Victoria Plum asked me how I step up my bathroom game, especially when you have guests staying over. I want them to feel like it’s a home away from home.

A threadbare towel hanging on the towel rail – NO! You need to pick some seriously stylish towels if you are going to impress your guests and take your bathroom to the next level.
