Plants are key to this look.

Try sourc­ing a range of plants that will grow well in a bath­room. Ask your lo­cal gar­den cen­tre for ad­vice – let them know where the nat­u­ral light source will be and what size plant you need.

Mix it up with pot­ted plants and cut stems.

An ef­fec­tive look can be achieved by adding wa­ter to a large glass ves­sel and pop­ping in a cou­ple of palm fronds. Try us­ing two bird-of-par­adise leaves, with one cut shorter to cre­ate a bal­anced look.

Use dif­fer­ent wood tones to­gether.

This bath­room mostly com­prises mid tones, but dif­fer­ent fin­ishes in the mir­ror, bath mat, stool and lad­der cre­ate in­ter­est.

Bring the ocean into your space

with a shell neck­lace, nat­u­ral sea sponge and shell planter. This cre­ates a tran­quil, is­land vibe that will truly make your bath­room a des­ti­na­tion.

Top it off with beau­ti­ful tow­elling.

Turk­ish tow­els work well here. Layer them with heav­ier tow­els for added tex­ture.
