Heather (@heatherrosieolivehome) is 33 years old and previously worked as a nurse for the NHS and has started pursuing her passions for DIY and interiors. Their home is based in Fife, near Dunfermline and is a 1930’s villa. The house previously had an extension added on; allowing for a playroom and additional bedroom, complete with en-suite.

She decided to give their family bathroom a well-deserved makeover, as the time had finally come to give it a full renovation; following a little touch-up when they first moved in back in 2017. It was important to Heather to wait until they had saved enough money to complete the project properly, and really bring their visions to life…

The project would include a number of different trades and materials, but getting it right was imperative. As this room is so regularly used by the whole family, Heather spent the best part of 12 months deciding on how she wanted it to look and ensured no finer detail was left unknown.


The original bathroom consisted of brown floor tiles, beige wall tiles, a panelled bath and very poorly designed hardware fixtures and fittings. The vanity area was a large, pale wood cupboard with a basin on top. As work began, they found numerous faults with the previous tiling and electrics; and were so glad they could finally rip it all out and start from scratch!

Heather has a huge crush on the colours pink and green, so she knew she wanted to use these shades in the bathroom. She discovered Lick through Instagram, and fell in love with Lick's Green 08 paint. Using the chat feature on the website, Heather sought advice for a shade of pink that would not only complement this colour, but also be durable enough for a bathroom.

Opting for the winning combination of Green 08 and Pink 03, Heather was equipped to add some serious colour and character to her bathroom.
