Summer and tropical style is a match made in design heaven and it is barely a surprise that as each time the warmer months roll in everyone wants to tap into a bit of tropical richness and beauty. Once again you need not completely alter the style of the bathroom and adopt a tropical-centric look just for the sake of a few months. Instead usher in elements from the style like lush green plants with their giant leaves natural finishes like bamboo blinds or a rattan stool or maybe lighting fixtures inspired by the tropics. Mixing modern and tropical styles is pretty easy and often the result is truly spectacular.
Mirrored frames are once again ‘in’ and they work equally well in classic and modern bathrooms alike. They are a practical choice in the small bathroom as the frame of the mirror adds to the sparkle of the room and gives it a more airy and light-filled vibe. If mirrored frames are not your thing then you might want to give colorful round mirrors like the ones from Valdama a shot. Whether you want a dash of peppy red in the bathroom to enliven a neutral bathroom or wish to elevate the colorful allure of the bathroom with a touch of nautical blue it is the colorful mirror frames that come to the rescue.
The mirror above the vanity makes a big impact on the style and ambiance of your bathroom so it is essential that you buy one that fits in with the overall theme and look. If you are simply revamping an existing bathroom then your options are already largely defined by the style of the bathroom. Mirrors with gold frames and ornate pattern look great in wide range of bathrooms that vary from Victorian to retro and art deco. Combine them with a smart sleek vanity that fits in with the overall look and you have a stunning focal point that is both bright and beautiful.
A beautiful chandelier adds glamour and brings a sense of opulence to the room without altering its color scheme. Styles such as Victorian Art Deco Hollywood Regency and even eclectic definitely need this sparkly touch to really give the black and white powder room that unmistakable allure. Add in a couple of chic sconces next to the mirror and you have a powder room with a ‘high-end’ feel!
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.
A bold splash of color in the powder room has become something of a trend in recent times with homeowners willing to add audacious wallpaper and bright hues to give this small space a huge personality. Much like the other ‘hot trends’ this love for vivacious color might not last forever but one color scheme that never goes out of trend is the classic duo of black and white. If you have ever stepped into a black and white bathroom you will easily understand the timeless elegance of this combination and why it is perfect for your fashionable powder room as well.
