PUT IT TO­GETHER

Your Home and Garden - - Bathroom Ideas Book -

> Stick­ing to a black and white pal­ette gives you the free­dom to mix pat­terns and tones. Here we have used black, grey and white tow­els sport­ing a range of de­signs, tex­tures and edg­ings.

> Layer it up. To make a pat­tern or de­sign stand out even more, place a plain-coloured mat or rug un­der­neath as we have done here.

> Matte fin­ishes are pop­u­lar and are read­ily avail­able in bath­room ac­ces­sories and tap­ware. A matte piece will add a mod­ern, up­scale look and an ef­fec­tive fin­ish­ing touch, es­pe­cially in black. Here we have fea­tured a matte black towel rack, tum­bler, laun­dry ham­per and mir­ror along with a matte white pen­dant light.

> Make your ac­ces­sories pop. If you have a mainly white base – white tiles and walls, for in­stance – add more black pieces. If your base is darker, use more white.

> When set­ting up your bath­room, spread tones through­out the space, rather than clus­ter­ing too many black things or white things to­gether.
