If you could design anyone’s bathroom (past or present), whose would it be? And what would you do with it?
 Mariano Fortuny (1871-1949) a very avant-garde designer of fabrics as well as being a painter, engraver, sculptor, photographer, set designer, lamp designer and more.
I could use his fabulous fabrics, silk or cotton, to upholster and line the walls. A Fortuny chandelier, Venetian mirrors, high ceilings and large windows with views of the Rialto bridge in Venice. It would be sumptuous and luxurious and a very special place to bathe in. I may even just design it for me...

What is your favourite bathroom product? Why?
I love Boyd Alternatives because the designs are so organic and have such presence, they really do make a statement in a bathroom.
