The general perception is that live‐ edge furniture is only in homes with a rustic bent and should only be used in spaces with farmhouse, Mediterranean or other exotic styles. That, of course, is a fad that you will quickly get past once you actually start seeing how amazing live‐ edge pieces can be when used in contemporary and modern interiors. It is no different in the case of the live‐ edge vanity top and the contemporary bathroom clad in sophisticated gray or relaxing white. The neutral backdrop of a modern bathroom allows the vanity top to shine through, even as its rough finish and woodsy charm bring a whole new dimension to the refined setting.
Despite its diminutive size, the powder room can make a big impact, especially when you are hosting guests and having friends and family over for holidays. And trying out a style like Victorian in the powder room is a safe decorating choice, as you will not be stuck with a garish living room or over‐ the‐ top bedroom when the trend starts to fade away. Always engaging, elegant and refined, the Victorian powder room is all about glitz, glamour and a celebration of all things wonderful.
Many homeowners like neutral shades when it comes to choosing the paint colors for bathrooms. Colors like brown, beige, white and ivory can be considered ‘warm without overpowering‘ and they never go out of style. One can also add a splash of color by selecting brighter accessory pieces, linen and other decorative bath items. Peach, apricot, pinks and other skin tones also make for some flattering bathroom color ideas. Not only are these cozy, they are ideal to pair up and coordinate with the timber and laminate you use for your bath cabinets. A bolder choice in these can add a dash of color to the space. Pale shades can also make the bathroom appear airy.
