Let the bathroom blogging continue! We hope you’ve had a chance to look at some of the other participants’ blogs; they’re all amazing with great, helpful tips. There’s only a couple more days left of this year’s Bathroom Blogfest so get your reading glasses on and enjoy the designs!
The colors of the ocean just seem to work in a bathroom. It could be the connection with water that makes these colors work so well. We’re not sure why so many of us are drawn to the colors of the sand and sea when designing our bathrooms, but we are. Blues, creams, beiges, greys and greens in soft hues can all work in a sea inspired bathroom.
Whether you choose to design your bathroom in coastal style or not, you can still use ocean inspired colors in the bath. Floors, walls, shower curtains, towels and mats can all be found in beautiful shades of the ocean and sea. Colors inspired by sea glass, soft blues, greens and white, are a lovely combination for the bathroom that is neither masculine nor feminine. If you have a bathroom that has white tile on the walls and floor, you can add these colors as accents as either paint for the wall or vanity, or in smaller doses by using colorful towels and mats.
Colorful glass tiles inspired by the ocean are beautiful in the shower or on the floor in a coastal or ocean inspired bathroom. Mosaic tiles used as a border or on the floor can also bring in ocean colors. Mix these colorful tiles with neutral stones like white marble or travertine to bring in another layer of natural beauty.
If the ocean does not inspire you, think about your favorite outdoor space. Mountains, lakes, meadows and deserts can all be color inspiration for your home.

Glass mosaic tile really does look great in any bathroom and the color combinations are endless. The blue tile you show looks great.

Ocean inspired colors are my absolute favorite – relaxing, uplifting, energizing.
You actually make it aaeppr really easy with your presentation however Ito find this matter to be actually something whichI think I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I’m looking ahead to your subsequentpublish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
