We all know that colorful decor can make an significant impact in spaces like the living room, kitchen and bedroom. But what about bright, bold hues in a white bathroom?
Rainbow-inspired decor, from the elegant chandelier to the striped basket and towel, brightens up this neutral bathroom from House to Home. While not a French empire-style chandelier like the one featured in this space, Urban Outfitters‘ candelabra-style Gypsy Chandelier is equally fun and decadent with its multi-colored acrylic jewels. And at $159, it’s a steal.
If you’d like your bathroom to feel light, airy and glamorous, take a cue from this chic space tagged on We Heart It. Here are some tips for creating this look on a budget. Skip the mosaic tiles and instead paint a white wall with horizontal stripes in a silver metallic or pearlescent finish. Z Gallerie’s Devon Mirror is similar in style to the one here. Then splurge on a Tolix Marais Armchair from Design Within Reach for a glitzy pop of color.
A colorful screen may be the only pop of color you need in the bath. This pierced-rubber divider in a floral pattern serves as a striking focal point and effectively separates the bedroom from the bath. Create a similar effect by hanging The Beat Shower Curtain from my AphroChic collection. Or Pier 1′s Sari Screen can create the same effect with a global twist.
If you’re craving even more color, but still want a bathroom with plenty of bright whites…
…why not wallpaper the bathroom. This teal flocked wallpaper featured in theLENNOXX definitely makes an impact. And the pattern on the wall works perfectly with the pattern in the reversible bath mat from The Koko Company. It’s a cheery, whimsical look that’s not over the top because of the prominent design elements in crisp white that take center stage — the mantel and the clawfoot tub. If you’re nervous about wallpaper, consider stenciling a wall to similar affect. And now that it’s summer, French bistro chairs like the one here should be an easy find at flea markets and antique stores.
