The Christmas edition of the Loo Series

And it's only the Christmas edition because the photos were taken around Christmas and our afternoon tea had a Christmas theme, and not because there was a Christmas tree in the loo. Unlike yesterday's post where there was a Christmas tree in the bedroom - I still can't help but think that's a little bit decadent.

This is probably one of the softer bathrooms I've posted and it belongs to St Ermins hotel in Westminster. It's feminine too isn't it?

The pale pink walls, the fish scale lampshade and the mother of pearl inlaid mirrors.  The repetition works well too, doesn't it?

It was harder than usual for me to get photos of this loo as both times I popped along there was an attendant paying close attention to the tidiness, it was that kind of classy establishment. It was also the first loo I've covered that had an auto flush, not that we need pictures of that, but it's something to note.

The mirrors were beautiful, so I'm not sure why I'm looking quite so thoughtful or grumpy!

 I'M NOT AS GRUMPY AS I LOOK, HONEST

Looking back though, I'm quite impressed at how the pattern on my dress echoed that of the mirror surround. Completely fluke as I'd never been here before, and well, it would be very weird to dress to match the decor wouldn't it?

Heading back up to the table, as the light fell outside, I was also captivated by the light reflecting through the glass. It's almost dancing, I think.

So what do you think, pretty and feminine - is that your kind of loo?
