Create a sense of serenity in your bathroom with pared-back pieces in neutral tones and natural textures. Tropical plants and shells enhance the feel of escapism.
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.
