There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style.

These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.

Most people have closets in their homes these days, but sometimes there’s always that need for the stuff that just doesn’t fit or belong in there.

If you have a bathroom that fits one, an armoire is a beautiful way to add more storage — especially for towels.

Here’s another Caroma tub, this time in a pearly shade of white. In fact, this Caroma Pearl (also available through Reece) boasts an oval organic shape. Note the way its simplicity is the perfect contrast to the ornate wall in the product shot below. Would you choose an acrylic tub for your crisp, clean powder room?

The rustic-modern bathroom often presents a blend of strong, simple forms and warm, earthy details. Note how the wooden shelves and charming view soften the modern features of the bathroom below from Jasmine McClelland Design. Once again, we see a lovely Apaiser tub take center stage.
