A cool pampering bathroom.
When it comes to bathrooms, nothing beats a fresh scheme that's simple and relaxing. Because bathrooms are generally small spaces, it's good to choose a style that allows you to keep the design lines quite clean and uncluttered. With its eco-greens and streamlined vanity stained with Resene Colorwood Black Pepper, this space echoes with a hint of Eastern promise.
The colour palette is restrained and elegant, anchored by a wall in Resene Coriander, a muted herbal green. The slatted bathmat is painted in Resene Scaramanga, Resene Secrets, Resene Coriander and Resene Seaweed, and sits on top of floorboards in Resene Colorwood Walnut.
The circular top-mounted basin has a certain ceremonial look while the stool is painted in Resene Paddock.
Make a duckboard mat for your front door or bathroom by painting timber slats in whatever colours suit your scheme, then roping them together. We used Resene Scaramanga, Resene Secrets, Resene Coriander and Resene Seaweed to go with our eco-zen bathroom setting and arranged the colours fairly randomly. You could use just one colour, two colours to create a striped effect, or arrange these four colours tonally from light to dark. Anything goes.
Where eco meets zen: Cotswold wall tiles in Sage from Tile Warehouse (www.tilewarehouse.co.nz). Tondo Vessel basin, and Eco High Rise tap, both from Plumbline (www.plumbline.co.nz). African Binga baskets (on wall), Bedouin Societe hand towel, Bedouin Societe bath sheet, Papaya bath towel in colour String, sea sponge, all from Indie Home Collective (as above). Rattan Gable basket, Terra Liquid Marseille soaps, Cube de Marseille soap, all from Citta Design (as above).
