A fabulously luxurious trend for bathroom interiors is emerging for 2011 – bright jewel tones.
Forget white, white and more white, the most elegant bathrooms this year will have splashes of vibrant turquoise, amethyst, ruby and emerald.
The trend is all about making your bathroom seem like a precious space, alive with colour and really inviting. Mixing the jewel shades makes for the most dramatic effect – giving a look that’s reminiscent of a Moroccan spa or an Indian temple.
If that’s not the look you want though, then just introducing a hint of bright purple, hot pink or vivid green will bring your bathroom up to date.
Savvy home owners can invest in classic white baths, sinks, shower cubicles and toilets, simply adding the colour and atmosphere using colourful mosaic tiles, towels and mats in vibrant shades and accessorising the room with jewel-coloured vases, trinkets and storage containers.
Here at BathEmpire we’re really smitten with this look because it’s both up-beat (probably a reaction to the rather depressing economic climate that we still have in the UK) and also really luxurious.
A bathroom filled with jewel colours will certainly inspire you in the mornings and will be the perfect spot to relax in the evenings with the lights dimmed and some candles lit.
Fortunately, although this look has a high-end feel, there’s no need for it to cost you too much. BathEmpire has some exceptionally good value modern baths, sinks and shower enclosures which can be the building blocks for your new bathroom.
Accessories can be picked up cheaply on the high street or on-line, and you can finish the room with mosaic tiles, which can be sourced from discount suppliers and used creatively so they look a lot more expensive than they were! Here are just a few we’ve spotted that will give your bathroom the jewel accent…
We hope you have fun dreaming up ways of introducing the jewel trend to your bathroom. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out the beautiful baths, showers and heated towel rails available from BathEmpire.
