Watery blue wallpaper brings the look of the ocean waters into the bathroom in this New Hampshire beach house. Soft-sided baskets offer an affordable yet attractive way to stow away extra towels and toilet paper for guests.
A soft neutral palette pairs with classic wainscoting and crown molding for a soothing bathroom retreat. Gold-framed prints add an elegant touch to the space, while a large spa bathtub is the perfect spot to relax.
A concrete trough sink adds a high-end touch to this guest bathroom and is balanced by lower-end choices such as soft-sided baskets that work as storage for linens and other bathroom essentials. Blue accents are in keeping with the color palette used throughout the New Hampshire beach house and echo the colors of the Atlantic Ocean outside.
To use a dark color in a space and maintain a light, airy feel overall, focus the shade in one main area, like the floor, ceiling or an accent wall. This bathroom pairs navy floor tiles with white walls and countertops and a blonde wood vanity.
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.
A large picturesque window provides a beautiful view of Martha's Vineyard from the large soaker bathtub. A sleek floating double vanity features vessel sinks and wall-mounted faucets, while the tiled walk-in shower showcases a rainfall showerhead and porthole window.
