We don’t put bathrooms on the cover of Your Home and Garden very often – interesting ones are hard to come by and they can also be tricky to shoot. But when we saw designer Vic Bibby’s gorgeous ensuite with its pink basin, blue tiles and luxe brass hardware, we knew it was a serious cover contender for this, our bathroom issue.
