In a room with abundant natural light, you don’t need bold hues to create a bright and cheerful energy. In this coastal master bath, for example, crisp white on the walls, countertop, and cabinets makes the slightest hint of contrast from the pale gray towels and natural woven baskets stand out, adding just enough interest to keep the space serene but not stark. Open shelving and Shaker-style cabinetry completes the clean, modern look.
