The new serenity trend is inspired by the Japanese notion of Zen. Create a simplified, pared-back look that is the perfect antidote to the pressures of urban living with tonal colour combinations and natural wood such as raw oak for warmth. Oversized tiles (above) will minimise the amount of grout lines, which will make for cleaner open wall and floor areas.
Nature provides the inspiration for a calm, tranquil environment with natural textures and green tones in this sophisticated but minimalist spa-style bathroom. Wall hung cupboards can be fixed at a height to suit individual needs, and they not only add a contemporary design statement but minimise any obstructions to easy movement around the bathroom.
