Walnut & Blue bathroom palette

Bathroom Design, Home Styling, interior design

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.

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.

Bedroom Wall Clock

This bedroom is looking for a wall piece to liven up the plain white walls.

The room is very minimalist, with grey and copper accessories meeting current trends.

I have collated some wall clocks that suit the style and colour scheme.

A clock with a slate grey background would work best as it will best break up the expanse of white. The slate clock from made.com is the perfect colour but the stone material is too rustic for the space. After an hour of browsing online I couldn’t find quite the right composition. Next step, find out how to make a wall clock!

The corner sofa

The corner sofa is a fabulous piece of furniture for so many reasons. In this post we see how a corner sofa is perfect for open plan, multi-functional spaces.

The corner sofa creates a room within a room; it can make a very large room feel more cosy by creating a smaller space.

The corner sofa is particularly successful at providing segregation between a kitchen and a living room in an open plan space.
