Bold looks for bath­rooms

jazz up your bathing zones with punches of pat­tern

Living Etc - - CONTENTS / ETC -


the trop­i­cal trend is pick­ing up pace. those who have al­ready braved jun­gle fab­rics and ex­otic fruit lamps in their liv­ing ar­eas are now em­brac­ing a sul­try vibe in their bath­rooms and the re­sults are just as ex­cit­ing. this look is a de­lib­er­ately in-your-face cel­e­bra­tion of colour and op­u­lence: palm fronds, birds of par­adise and hot caribbean shades. If you’re not ready to com­mit to pat­terned per­ma­nent fix­tures – though House of Hack­ney’s Fo­liage col­lec­tion, which can be printed on to tiles, is hard to re­sist – go for broke on accessories. An­thro­polo­gie ticks off trop­i­cal in shower cur­tains, tow­els and trin­ket dishes, while rock­ett St Ge­orge is a trea­sure trove for all things flamingo, pineap­ple and palm leaf. ‘this trend is all about bring­ing colour, air and green­ery into our homes. Bold, vivid pat­tern is prov­ing the perfect an­ti­dote to ster­ile, white bath­rooms,’ adds Dan cook, de­signer at cp Hart.
