5 True blue

A colourful coat of paint is the least-expensive way to give your bathroom an immediate revamp. Create a tranquil vibe by painting the walls blue — although Serenity has been named colour of the year by Pantone, we suggest looking at other hues on the spectrum, such as this beautiful Observatory shade from Mylands.
