Introducing Private Room


We celebrate the ‘other’ room through our online magazine and social channels. We take our readers into inspirational homes and introduce them to the brains behind the beauty, we show the newest and best trends and innovations in bathroom design and we say where to shop to create your own, beautiful Private Room.


We’re here to inspire the celebration of the ‘other’ room we live in and to make the experience of creating a new bathroom aspirational, engaging and characterful.


Our guiding principles


We had the big idea but now we need the experience and expertise to bring our vision to life. This is a new role for a fresh brand so we’re after a special individual who will have a creative impact on our future success story.


What better place to start our search than by referencing the 4 guiding principles that form the backbone of our brand.


If you’re someone that can always see the big picture and if you can relate to these guiding principles you might be just who we have been looking for!


1. Champion inspiration
Find it, share it, create it. Share ideas, be creative, introduce people to other creative people and always look for ways to do something a little bit different.


2. Tell the truth
We’re a ‘true’ brand, rooted in real life rooms, not sterile environments that nobody lives in. Give an honest picture of everything - from the inspiration you show to how something will fit and work in someone’s home.


3. Be big on personality
Show your personality and encourage others to do the same, everything we do is in the context of real life and we applaud
engaging experiences.

We’re on a constant journey to find inspiration and bring creativity to life.
