Finding a balance between black and white in the powder room can be a tricky affair at the best of times and a good segue between the two is to use the different shades of gray on offer. Gray is undoubtedly the hot neutral of this decade and its ‘power’ only seems to grow with each passing season. Giving the powder room a gray tint while embracing the black and white look is a great way to combine both trendy and timeless elements in a seamless fashion.
The easiest way to add freshness style and a relaxed ambiance into the bathroom (or any other room of your home) is by adding a potted plant or two. Indoor plants do not often require meticulous and constant care and a light-filled bathroom with slightly damp conditions is perfect even for cool air plants or a scintillating living wall. With bathrooms going down the path of seamless indoor-outdoor interplay it definitely is now far easier to usher in a healthy dose of natural goodness.
Powder rooms are usually small with the ultra-tiny ones barely having enough space for a person to squeeze in and make a proper turn inside! But we have been lucky enough to stumble upon a few powder rooms that are larger than some of the more modest bathrooms we have come across! If you are blessed with that amount of space feel free to go more ornate with your Victorian overhaul. 3D wall paintings and wall art are always welcome here as long as they fit in with the broader more classical theme and bright colors can be used more freely inside these larger spaces.
The perception that wallpaper in the powder room is only useful when you want to usher in bold pattern and bright colors is pretty far off from reality. Even those wanting a stylish and sophisticated black and white backdrop for the powder room can use wallpaper that brings plenty of pattern and personality to the limited space without actually disturbing the color scheme. Whether it is simple stripes or playful patterns inspired by the sights and sounds of nature wallpaper in black and white is as much of a showstopper as those in striking shades.
Maybe your bathroom already looks rustic and old-fashioned but maybe it’s more on the modern side. Either way a copper tub is a good choice! It will either perfectly match the rest of the rustic interior or be that one vintage element that feels like a soul of the room!
Taking the living room into the bathroom might sound a bit crazy at first but this definitely is the way forward for those planning for a brand new bathroom. The idea of ‘bathroom living’ is gaining momentum across the world with designers and homeowners gravitating towards this innovative and luxurious concept. It is a trend that has also been personified in the many bathroom designs that we recently witnessed at Salone del Mobile 2017. Allowing you to add everything from bookshelves and comfy couches to a fireplace and TV to the bathroom this fabulous upgrade will turn your existing bathroom into a soothing private sanctuary.
