Blue Gray Bathroom

Gray + White Cool, clean, and classic, this neutral color scheme treats gray as an accent color on the floor and in veined marble wainscoting. Texture plays a big part in this traditional room’s ambience. The floor features an intricate herringbone pattern of rectangular tiles, bordered in black, white, and gray. Large-format rectangular tiles form the wainscoting, and gleaming polished-nickel fixtures pop against the quiet background. A matte-finish painted wall recedes against crisp white medicine cabinets.

Bathroom Rugs for Comfort and Convenience It’s all too easy to overlook the importance of bathroom rugs. Just imagine taking the most refreshing and soothing shower or bath you’ve had in a long, long time. Brushing aside the shower curtains, some warm and fluffy bath towels are waiting to envelope you inside their luxuriously soft embrace. Drying off, you step out of the tub and onto the cold, cold tile floor—and in a second, you’re jolted out of that smooth and relaxed state of mind! Or worse, you end up taking a nasty slip backward into the tub. Avoid this exact scenario by investing in a set of bathroom rugs. Not only do they protect your feet, they’re an invaluable way of adding some color and variation to the bathroom! Coordinate with the shower curtain or the color of the wallpaper and create a bathroom design language that speaks of warmth, comfort and peace of mind. Colorful Bath Mats Serve Many Purposes Look out for that slippery floor! Add strategically placed bath mats or bath rugs right under where your feet go—it’s surprising how much they can help out! Some have memory foam to help cushion and pamper your feet after a relaxing bath—how divine it feels! Many feature non-skid and non-slip material for stable footing. You’ve probably felt that cold touch of icy tile when you step into the bathroom first thing in the morning, which then jars you out of your sleepy morning daze. Adding comfy, cozy bath mats to your bathroom is one way to avoid such an abrupt awakening. Buy mats separately or in a collection, which includes mats of various sizes and a toilet lid cover. Whether its separates or a collection, a rousing red or tame green, your bath mats from JCPenney are sure to be a welcome addition to the rest of your colorful bed and bath collection.

Watery blue hues. These soft, muted greenish-blue hues work especially well for bedrooms and bathrooms, where they offer a calming, spa-inspired vibe.

Cherry Red + Lakeside Blue + Bisque In a space typically awash in neutrals, we say “kudos” for going fearless, as in, pairing a cherry red vanity with a blue-tiled shower. Bold color combos would be amiss if it weren’t for carefully placed details and supporting neutrals. Geometric moldings on the vanity, a metallic shimmer in the tile, neutral walls, and wood floors do the trick in this bathroom.

You could substitute many dark, dark colors in for the midnight blue and still have a striking bathroom color scheme. We like this midnight blue, with all of its subtle tonal variations in different lighting – greens, blues, greys, and even blacks are all evidenced here, set off by the contrasting white tiles and fixtures.

“There’s a lot of light in the house, and on the headboard wall we wanted a nice neutral to dark color,” says Wilson. “We chose that warm gray partially because it’s an easy color to decorate with as a background. You can throw anything against it, and it’s going to look fabulous.” Because the master bathroom is buried a bit in the middle of the house, Wilson used a frosted glass panel in the shower to allow more daylight to traverse into the bathroom.

It’s warm, it’s traditional, and it’s utterly serene. Pale blue and white as a color combination, I mean. As a bathroom color scheme, it’s perfect, particularly when brightened up with some natural light. (And we can’t help but fall in love with a bathroom with that clawfoot tub!)
