Get the Look: The Harbour—Part 4

Posted by Nicky Kingston in Style guides | 3 years ago 6 min read

Ready to make waves with your new bathroom? In the final edition of our 4-part Get the Look style guide, I’ll show you exactly which Victoria Plum products we used to achieve The Harbour look, helping you to create a nautical style that’s got your name written all over it.

If you haven’t already read parts 1–3, it’s definitely worth going back through and catching up on this look.

In part 1, I introduced you to the overall look and explained how it differs from other nautical styles in terms of products, colours and accessories. The products themselves form the main focus of part 2, where we discovered which items lend themselves to this style. Finally, in part 3, I had loads of fun accessorising the bathroom with the right colours, textures, walls and flooring.

Get the Look: The Harbour—Part 1

The Harbour: Shop the Look

The Harbour look is a more refined nautical style, so we’ve opted for bathroom products with a traditional feel from The Bath Co. However, there are some contemporary touches which keep this bathroom looking fresh and modern.

When creating a coordinated bathroom design it is usually best to stick to products from the same bathroom collection but, of course, you can deviate off course to add a personal touch to proceedings. With our bathroom room set, we mainly chose items from the Winchester collection, Camberley collection and Beaumont tap range. You’ll find all these products below:


The Bath Co. Traditional single ended slipper bath

This classic bath forms the centrepiece of the whole bathroom design. With its slipper design, meaning one end is higher than the other, it actually resembles the shape of a boat which sets the tone for this nautical style.

Made from high quality acrylic for durability and easy cleaning, your taps can be deck mounted at one end. We chose a white bath with chrome ball and claw feet, however there other colour and finish combinations available which could work equally well.

Shower and enclosure

The Bath Co. Camberley thermostatic exposed mixer shower

Adding to the refined look, this shower set is traditional in style with a gorgeous wall arm and classic shower head. Further vintage-inspired embellishments can be found around the thermostatic shower valve, like chrome levers and a cross head handle.

A detachable handset is ideal for washing hair and rinsing around your shower area, whilst an anti-scald cut out device provides safe and secure showering for the whole family.

The Bath Co. Camberley 8mm traditional framed quadrant enclosure

Combining both contemporary and traditional elements, this sleek, space-saving enclosure from The Bath Co. will keep your bathroom feeling light and spacious allowing The Harbour look to really shine through.

The 8mm British Standard safety glass conforms to BS EN 14478, the relevant standard for shower enclosures, whilst the traditional Victorian cover caps and vintage-inspired handles complement the more traditional look.

Basin and toilet

Period elegance is the name of the game and what better way to add a touch of classic style than with this beautiful pedestal basin. Complete with traditional embellishments and a surround that looks totally shipshape, this high quality basin will fit seamlessly with your nautical design. Add a second if you're sharing with shipmates!

Orchard Winchester close coupled toilet with painted wood seat white

Whilst we haven’t displayed the toilet in our larger room set, it pays to go for something classical that’s in-keeping with the rest of your décor. That’s why I’d heartily recommend this close coupled toilet. Complete with a traditional and ultimately satisfying handle flush, the decorative ceramic on the cistern even reminds me of waves on an ocean.

Orchard Dulwich basin pillar taps

These traditional taps do a great job complementing the overall style. Cross head handles work brilliantly well with nautical style interiors as they replicate the look of wheels, dials and pulley mechanisms, which can be found aboard boats.

The Bath Co. Camberley lever bath shower mixer tap

This bath mixer tap is from the same collection as the shower, for a coordinated look between the two. With lever handles, it is really easy to operate, especially if you find regular taps a little fiddly.

Walls and floors

Pure white flat gloss wall tile 100mm x 200mm

Metro and brick style tiles continue to be incredibly popular in both bathrooms and kitchens due to their versatility. As a timeless tile design, they can be used to complement both traditional and contemporary bathrooms, and can also be used in a variety of ways.

In The Harbour bathroom, we’ve used these flat white gloss metro tiles around the shower area, to create a clean, spacious feel. White forms the main colour in our palette, but we’ve opted for black grout to give contrast.

The Harbour nautical bathroom walls and floors

Kronostep Camelback oak SPC flooring

With good quality vinyl flooring, you can easily achieve the look of a real wood floor without the maintenance issues that accompany it. We chose Kronostep Camelback flooring for our boat-themed decking as the vinyl planks come in a range of shades for a weathered appearance.

Kronostep flooring is actually so simple to install, you can do it yourself. It’s self-levelling, with no adhesives or underlay required, plus with a scratch and stain-resistant, anti-bacterial surface it's easy to clean, so you can keep your bathroom looking shipshape with very little effort.


Forum Solis cylinder bathroom wall light

Finally, to add a little extra illumination, we chose this gorgeous wall light from the Forum lighting range. Whilst the style is certainly more contemporary when compared the rest of our decor, the cylindrical shape lends itself well to the nautical theme—think portholes and rings.
