I have been putting a bathroom scheme together for a client based around a palette of walnut and blue.
The painting on both moodboards is in the clients’ master bedroom, along with a wall decorated with walnut panelling and crisp white paint. It is important that the en-suite to this bedroom follows this theme to allow the two rooms to work as one.
The first scheme (above) uses a fairly light colour palette and creates depth using texture. Alongside the walnut panelling I have proposed using a concrete plaster on the walls and a dark grey textured porcelain floor tile. The blue will be introduced in the accessories, including some glass pendant lights.
Above are two examples of how concrete plaster works in bathrooms. The material is hard wearing, can be used in shower areas, and can be used in recesses for a sleek finish.
Below, the concrete plaster, walnut panelling and Porcelanosa Venis Newport tile in Dark Grey.
The second scheme (below) uses a slightly warmer colour palette, as I received feedback that, as the bathroom is quite large, the concrete and light palette feels a little cold. As we can afford to give the illusion of a smaller space in this room, I have replaced the concrete with copper panelling and a deep blue paint to add warmth.
Below is a closer look at the chosen palette. The paint is Farrow and Ball ‘Drawing Room Blue’, with the same walnut panels, the same Porcelanosa floor tile and the copper panelling.
Here are some examples of how a copper clad wall may look.
