There is a reason why the classics are the classics and if you love a bit of timeless traditional charm in the bathroom, then now is the time to shed the modern cloak and give the space an upgrade. Giving the bathroom a more classic appeal comes with bathroom fixtures with warm, metallic glint, a touch of gold here and there and plenty of textural contrast as well. You can still choose a predominant style – be it eclectic, rustic, art décor or shabby with a touch of elegance! A vintage bathtub, weathered wooden vanity and a lovely chandelier should complete this refined space.
We do get quickly bored with more of the same; not just as a set of individuals, but as a collective group of people. This is probably what drives our spirit to try out new things and keeps the trends chart alive and kicking at all times. Of course, trying out new materials in your home is a tricky and even risky affair. It is not for those with commitment issues when it comes to decorating their home. But for the confident few who wish to give the trendy new finish in town a shot, concrete is undoubtedly the way forward! Nothing revolutionary and yet delightfully fresh, exposed concrete finishes are once again ‘cool’!
You do need the right style and size to get it spot on. Even in the most polished contemporary bathroom, the upcycled vanity is a welcome addition that provides textural and visual contrast. It is even more at home in rustic, farmhouse and industrial style bathrooms.
There was a time when wood, brick and any other unpolished surface was considered simply ‘unacceptable and regressive’ in the modern bathroom. Unsurprisingly, that wave has passed and the trends of 90’s are starting to give way to more organic design elements. If you are not already on this bandwagon, the mirrors with wooden frames give you a fine and easy start. Once again, view this as a piece that brings warmth and contrast to a bathroom that is otherwise sophisticated and largely monochromatic.
We are always exploring new ways in which we can bring color and pattern into our homes. Of course, we want to do this in a curated and classy manner. It should not feel forced. Finding the right setting for the right theme and style is essential here. And there are few rooms in our homes where we can try out ‘something new’ without it being garish or over the top. The powder room is undoubtedly one of these places. It allows you to experiment with ‘hot trends’ before bringing them to the living room, bedroom or the kitchen. Today, we explore one such trend with ‘modern Mediterranean’ style and ways in which it can be used to revamp your tiny powder room.
