For Rana Darbyshire (@ranadarbyshire and @thefinchleyproject), who lives in a 1926 Mock-Tudor semi in North London, transforming what was once an all-black bathroom into a warm, light and cosy space was key to making it both stylish and child-friendly. It was when she spotted the National Trust Tile Collection’s Woodland Glade on Instagram that she knew she had the perfect fit. “This Collection is all about bringing the outdoors in and I love that idea, so then I started thinking about trying to elaborate on that and making it feel like the bathroom was almost a garden. The Ca’ Pietra Brewhouse porcelain tiles made me think of brick walls in the gardens of beautiful estates, so I felt they’d be the perfect fit with Woodland Glade.”
