AWASH WITH BLUE

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

Breathe new life into your bath­room, be it coastal or pe­riod in style, with a breezy palette of blues from soft shades of sky through to teal, denim and navy. If you pre­fer go­ing down the nau­ti­cal route, com­ple­ment these colours with pops of red, oth­er­wise punchy pinks, or­anges or yel­lows will more than hold their own.

SET THE STAGE

Po­si­tion a free­stand­ing bath on a raised plat­form and it will be­come the cen­tre­piece of your bath­room. If you’ve got the space, this raised dais can be of deck-like di­men­sions, oth­er­wise a nar­rower plinth step-up will do the trick.

BRING ON COLOUR

Hav­ing left be­hind the retro pink, mint and av­o­cado bath­roomware of yes­ter­year – to­day white rules. That’s not to say coloured baths are a no-no. Mod­ern tubs come in a range of gor­geous hues lim­ited to the outer cas­ing.

SPLASH OUT FORGO TILES REACH OUT Pretty up a fresh white shower cur­tain with blue edg­ing. Con­sider ma­rine ply wall pan­elling and go tile-free close to a free­stand­ing bath. A stool comes in handy as a spot to rest tea or ‘sham­poo’
