Bathroom / January 27, 2018 / Amelia Cao.
If a monochromatic look seems a little too intense for your home, there’s an easy way to brighten up the space while adding more visual interest: Just add natural materials such as wood, stone or metal. Choose one or incorporate a variety.
The challenge is achieving that middle ground. How do you infuse warmth into the space while still benefiting from stylistic contrasts, and how do you keep it from looking too clinical? Take a look at our suggestions below; we’re confident that you can put together a space that’s as comfortable as it is stylish.
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.
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.
