Natural Tones for an Inviting Bathroom
By: Helen Davies
***We are beyond excited to introduce you to our newest blogger Helen Davies! Helen joins us from the UK, (Yes, across the pond), and will be sharing her insights on all things related to bathrooms…Being a bathroom nut has it’s advantages, such as being affiliated with one of UK’s largest independent bathroom companies, Better Bathrooms. And yes she admittely spends most of her paycheck on bathroom designer swag! We told you she was a bathroom fanatic…***
This is the time of year when I especially LOVE to delve into design magazines, blogs, while also visiting trade shows to see which new trends are gaining ground. In doing so, I have noticed one key design concept that has re-emerged itself on the scene. Are you ready for it?! Yep, the use of natural tones and materials-especially in bathroom design – seems to have exploded!
During the “oh so” chilly winter months, I can always appreciate a bathroom that wonderfully calms me with the softened tones of nature. Tactile rich colours and textures always prove to be the combination needed for my nightly wind down in the tub. Ah, the light pastel walls, the unique grains and patterns of natural stone tiles, and naturally finished wooden bathroom furniture combines to make a bathroom aesthetic which is friendly, relaxing and not to mention one that I can enjoy spending my “bath time” in.
I mean look at these natural, organic bathroom styles, with soft pastel walls in light beige, cream and taupe! Can you say bliss?! I know that I sure can…
Now, if you’re like me and want your bathroom to have a focal point, then a natural stone basin can serve as a glamorous centrepiece to a luxurious bathroom suite.
Also, choosing a natural wooden finish will instantly infuse any bathroom furniture with rich, tactile warmth, while also adding the right amount of character and personality!
I predict a big year for naturally themed bathrooms in 2013. I love, love, LOVE it! Now my only question is: Who’s with me?!
