NOD TO NOS­TAL­GIA

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Design Trends -

If you have a love of the past but you have no in­ten­tion of deny­ing your­self a lux­u­ri­ous bathing ex­pe­ri­ence, blend mod­ern bath­roomware with graphic retro-look tiles and real-deal vin­tage buys you can re­fresh or up­cy­cle to your heart’s de­sire. And note how wow-wor­thy greens stand out against a palette of stylish greys.

WORK YOUR TILES

Bath­rooms can be plain and beau­ti­ful, but to be truly out­stand­ing it takes a weeny bit of courage from you. Com­mit to a bright pat­tern floor tile like this green hexag­o­nal one and not only will you en­er­gise your bath­room, the ac­co­lades will fol­low.

REIMAG­INE A BUF­FET

Retro­fit a mod­ern above-counter basin to a mid-cen­tury buf­fet for a one-off orig­i­nal. Con­sider scale when pair­ing a basin (be it shal­low or deep) with vin­tage fur­ni­ture to en­sure the fin­ished height is com­fort­able.

LIE BACK AND RE­LAX Soak up the lux­ury of a deep free­stand­ing bath. There’s a tub for ev­ery bud­get! GO FOR GREY POWER Wall-mount task lights to suit your over­all theme and scheme. PS, aim for hooks over rails. OPEN OR SHUT Shut­ters are not only smart, they of­fer pri­vacy.
