Bathroom / January 14, 2018 / Tiffany Vann.
Since many of the materials used in modern design have a tendency to come off as cold or even a little harsh, it becomes necessary to infuse a sense of warmth and comfort back into the room. One easy way to do that is by layering different textures throughout the space.Fortunately, a bathroom naturally lends itself to lots of texture. Start by anchoring the tub or shower with a plush rug or mat. Make sure the space includes multiple layers of soft towels. Top off the room with a few spa accessories such as fluffy robes to make it especially luxurious.
Traditionally, choosing furniture for a modern space meant staying within the Art Deco, Shaker or Mission styles. More recently, Scandinavian-inspired products have also been included in this category. Whichever design your bathroom furnishings are, try to ensure that they are as simplistic as possible and have a clearly defined shape.
Add personality by combining multiple shades of green with exotic wood grains – perhaps adding metallic finishes for a tropical glasshouse look. Decorative floor tiles in bold trellis and geometric designs such as the Hackney range from bathstore will anchor the overall look. And plants have a hugely positive psychological effect on our happiness, so include plenty of moisture-loving ferns and palms.
Dive into the deep with this season’s favourite blue. Rich, inky indigo (above) will add a dramatic splash of coastal chic when teamed with sea green. Keep it modern with a voluminous contemporary style freestanding bathtub as the centrepiece and team with clean-lined chrome accessories.
