You’re pretty lucky if you have a large enough window in your bathroom that could use a seating area right beneath it. A bathroom reno featured on Beneath My Heart uses an upholstered loveseat bench with added accent pillows for the window area. How about a built-in? This vanity featured on Home Bunch has a bench area near the window, while this other example (also from Home Bunch) creates a window seat out of a bathroom storage unit. You could also try a bathroom storage unit on a much larger scale with a bench as well, like the third option below from BHG. Built-ins are great, but they’re not for everyone. You could try a simple wicker bench with an elegant cushion to place by your bathroom window, like the one below featured on House of Turquoise.
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? This Nazzano Acrylic Modern Bathtub from Modern Bathroom Vanities has the advantage of being nonporous, which means it’s very hygienic and easy to clean.
A vanity bench can always help if you spend a lot of time in the bathroom putting on makeup or doing your hair. Have a look at this incredibly elegant tufted bench from Alice Lane Home that could do the trick. A more compact option is a simple stool, like this gorgeously elegant selection (again from Home Bunch) that matches the style of this bathroom. This vanity from APD Architects actually has its own seated area, with a matching cushioned stool. Even a regular ottoman can work in a bathroom. This one featured on HGTV has a space against a wall right across from the vanity. This next very interesting bench featured on BHG stems out from the vanity beside it, where there’s a window. If the size and architecture of your bathroom make it work, then why not?
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. Warm wooden tones are also alive and well in the next featured powder room. We’re loving how the round form of the tub perfectly complements the modern Vernor Panton Large Globe Light, which adds industrial flair to the space.
A creative approach to form, functionality and color triggered the development of the Tube Chair by French designer Jean-Pierre Martz. Each of the pieces in the original Martz Edition comes with a special approach, relieving the many sides of the initial creative idea. Curves are at the bases of the project design and with every standpoint you are likely to discover surprising details. The name of the chair-Tube- seems to...
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom, then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior. Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding, accessories, nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing. Those who feel that an accent wall in green or décor are not your thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy, eco-friendly and healthy choice to turn to that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.
The TREEANGLE table by Russian designer Anna Strupinskaya triggers the imagination with an image of a curved tree, split up at the top. The leg of the table is smoothly transformed into a small white vase. The sleek composite pillar created with nature-inspired, asymmetric forms composes a dynamic bend. We love the way this project blends artistic and practical features, resulting in an original home decorating piece. The concept recalls...
The bathroom is perhaps the one room that doesn’t allow you to do very much in terms of furniture. With so much space taken up by the shower, the tub, the vanity, and the toilet, it can be a challenge to figure out how to bring in a little more style, even with the smallest pieces of furniture like shelves and benches — especially if you’re stuck with a really small bathroom! Lucky for you, there are lots of benches and stools out there that are versatile enough to fit any bathroom, small or large.
Adding green to the bedroom is easy if you already have a muted color scheme going in the room. It is a color that works beautifully with the likes of white, gray and even brown. While the yellowy-greens add warmth to the bedroom, the blue-tinged variants bring a touch of coolness along with a vibrant ambiance. Here is a pick of 25 gorgeous bedrooms that incorporate green in a gorgeous fashion.
