A Color Punched Bathroom with a Modern Edge

A Color Punched Bathroom with a Modern Edge

Let me preface this by saying that I am a natural born renter. I've never actually thought what the perfect bathroom would be; I've just thought of ways to perfect my existing bathroom. For my dream bathroom, I wanted to start with a bold statement and add from there. Since my aesthetic (in design, fashion, interiors) tends toward modern, clean and basic with a couple of accent pieces thrown in for good measure, the rest of the design is geometric and neutral.

I love the idea of using a statement wallpaper in bathrooms. However, this wallpaper is pretty bold so I'd opt to use it on one or two accent walls with white walls everywhere else and tile for the bathtub surround. To tone down the pinkness of the wallpaper, I chose green towels to not only add some contrast, but also a bit of masculinity. The floors are divine and add a bit of warmth to the space. I also love how the organic, free flowing nature of the wallpaper contrasts with the angular nature of the tub, sink, tiles and flooring. And while the space feels somewhat graphic, there is still something calm and relaxing about it all. Hmm....makes me rethink renting forever after all.
