Bring the outside in with Starlight Express


Evoke the feeling of bathing in an old, overgrown ruin in the jungle by bringing the outside in with Plascon’s Starlight Express and hanging plants aplenty.

● Paint the walls using Plascon Waterbased Velvaglo Starlight Express (Y5-E1-3).

● Incorporate your favourite botanical prints. The prints on the wall are by 19th century English botanist Anna Atkins and downloaded free of charge from the image archive of the New York Library (

● Go for greenery that thrives in a damp environment and plants that will grow over and obscure their containers, making them appear suspended in mid-air.

● Create additional focal points in the bathroom with accessories in wicker and copper.
