Introduce elements of nature
Get the look by choosing paint finishes and matching accessories in tones inspired by the natural world, for a relaxing space in which to get away from it all.
Surfaces such as flooring – sealed wood, stone or marble tiles work beautifully and make a great canvas for a stunning suite and luxurious shower. Deep blue tiles in a chic herringbone pattern provide the perfect backdrop to our Gracechurch shower, which is available in a range of options to create your ideal showering experience.
Consider adding warmth and personality with tactile accessories and plants. The bathroom is generally a humid environment so look out for plants that thrive in these conditions, such as ferns, spider plants and ivy. Don’t be afraid to go all out and create an impressive trailing display – less is most definitely not more when it comes to greenery.
Warm up your space with metallics
Another key trend to look out for is metallics – an easy way to add finishing touches in the form of brassware and accessories. We predict taps in soft vintage gold will be popular this year, perfect for achieving an air of sophistication.
If you’re looking to make a real statement, a showstopping freestanding bath is a must. Our Holywell bath, available in gold, copper or stainless steel effects, is finished with real metallic leaf and coated with a high gloss acrylic to ensure it stands the test of time. Whichever effect you choose, it’s sure to create a sense of luxury, especially when co-ordinated with other metallic touches in the room.
Add a touch of drama
Achieve an elegant look in your bathroom by using a distinctive palette of dark, moody shades. If black isn’t your style, why not opt for Pantone colour of the year Very Peri, a beautiful blue with violet red undertone.
As pictured, set beautifully against a pretty floral backdrop, our Granley suite boasts iconic bold lines influenced by the work of Edward Lutyens, considered to be one of Britain's greatest architects.
If you don’t want to replace your whole suite, you can still recreate this scheme with some carefully chosen accessories. Add a basket of neatly rolled towels in your favourite colour. Or consider fitting a simple shelf to display items such as flowers and candles.
Whether you take inspiration from your favourite boutique hotel or a stately home, the good news is that this look is right on trend too, and, what’s more, it’s timeless, so you can rest assured that your bathroom is likely to be in vogue for years to come.
