How To Style It; MAHRI basin

Written by Sarah Horner-Sigre


Posted on March 08 2021

Our Mahri basin is right up there in our bestsellers and it's not hard to see why.

MAHRI – The Way We Live London Ltd.

The ethereal green shade is a calming and timeless choice for a bathroom or cloakroom space. The crackle glaze and textured embossed detail around the middle gives it a pretty and interesting look.

We are often speaking with clients about their basin choice and what sorts of tiles, colours, fixtures and fittings would work in harmony with our range of standout basins, it is hands down the favourite part of our job.

If you are looking for help, opinions or advice, we will always make time to talk and look through your ideas and offer our help on sourcing complimentary products.

When we styled Mahri for our shoot, we knew exactly the look we wanted to create; distressed decadence. The stunning backdrop was created by Sam Cunningham who helped with the styling and dressing process. Sam creates these wonderful backgrounds and surface effects through a mix of layered paint techniques and texturing materials to create depth and give the perfect blend of distress and detail. While some more heavily textured designs are only advised for temporary events and shoots, Sam can also create similar beautiful effects in your own home if desired, see more of her work here Surfaces — SAM CUNNINGHAM (

We’ve put together a three idea’s below of how you can build a look around Mahri.

All stockists’ details can be found at the bottom of the post.

Let us know your thoughts on which is your favourite and if you need any help then we’d love to hear from you.


The deep green mottled wall covering sets the tone for this dramatic look. We have mixed in aged, muted metallics and smoky tones. We are huge fans of mixing in some vintage pieces and the chandeliers and tiles we found on eBay. The whole effect is decedent, vintage and elegant.


A muted colour pallet but oh so fun. The right tone of blush pink is a perfect pairing for Mahri and we love this majestic Lynx wallpaper. We have used neutral tones with the exception of the mirror which  reflects the playfulness of the wallpaper and the subtle arabesque shapes of the tiles and towel.



If you prefer a lighter and breezier look then this is how to do Mahri. It’s all about the natural materials; linen, rattan, terracotta and a touch of luxe with mother of pearl. We also love an interesting towel and these ones have a lovely sumptuous texture. 


So tell us, which is your favorite look?
