Go natural by adding some earthy, natural tones to your bath spaces. Bhopal-based interior designer Priti Tatiya tells us how to get started.
Trending Now: Moss and Grey
We call this project The Earth & Wind. Our client wanted a cosy and creative abode, so we worked in that direction to create a personalised and happy place. Earth & Wind is a perfect blend of nature and contemporary aesthetics, and was designed keeping in mind the owner's love for greenery and their desire to host guests. Each washroom was designed keeping personalised tastes in mind, and gave a rich, vintage look to the common washrooms. Each had plants and natural light, providing a soothing and calming effect.
We have used a variety of tiles, ranging from plain greys to bricks, stones, planks, carpet, heritage tiles, and more. And have added in some coloured sanitary ware as we felt white would be quite stark. With coloured fittings, one can choose the hues that blend well with the theme and do not overshadow the overall look and feel of the washroom.
⦁ In one washroom, we used muted tones to highlight the mirror wall and the greens in the washroom. Use of carpet tiles for the highlighter wall is to give a classic look, and chandeliers add to the beauty of the space.
⦁ In the other, the son’s bathroom, we wanted to give a rustic, earthy and youthful look to it, so we used stone and brick tiles for the walls and wooden tiles for the floor.
⦁ In the third, we wanted to give a vintage look to the powder toilet. So we made use of heritage tiles for the highlighter wall and added a touch of beauty with the peacock-hued WC and basin, which merge well with the overall theme.
Priti’s quick tips to add greens to your bath space…
⦁ Greenery added anywhere and everywhere is beautiful, so why not in the washrooms – it’s always a feel-good factor to be surrounded by nature
⦁ When you add planters, remember to provide skylights above them to keep the plants healthy with natural light
⦁ Introduce greens through colour and texture with materials like tiles or small inserts for the walls and floor… or include a basin and faucet keeping the same theme in mind
⦁ Be open to experimenting with colours and textures, and add in a plant or two for that extra earthy element.
