Warm and contemporary are not usually thought of as going together. Contemporary design, with its minimalist decoration and clean lines, is often referred to as being cool or cold. This bathroom is a great example of a contemporary design that can feel warm and inviting. Despite the lack of flourishes and a plethora of stone surface, this bathroom has a warm feeling.
The warm neutral color of the wall above the sink has enough tint to counterbalance the cool grey of the marble tiles in the shower. Continuing the same warm cream from the wall onto the counter creates a wide swath of warmth. Both the stone countertop and wall color are complemented by the warm wood of the vanity.
The lack of flourishes and clean lines actually puts more emphasis and color and materials in this bathroom. Wood grain, wall color and the stone all stand out as key design elements. The marble of the shower or the warm wood of vanity could either be put on the floor for a cohesive overall design. Another choice would be to carry the countertop and wall color onto the floor.
Adding an orchid brings in a beautiful organic touch to the cool surfaces and straight lines of the room’s designs. A single natural element like a plant or vase of flowers stands out in a sleek space. The orchid adds a pop of color as well as visual interest. Wood accessories would also add organic, natural warmth to the cool stone that dominates this bathroom.
