A small space can be just as restorative as a large one -- and color is the main ingredient for setting a peaceful mood. In this bungalow bathroom in Seattle, the mix of materials is limited to two colors: cool blue (which is calming and evokes natural elements) and warm cream (which suggests coziness and comfort). The effect is the visual equivalent of a long, cool drink of water. At the vanity, chrome towel rings, unadorned mirrors, and other minimal accents add to the peaceful mood.
The blue tint of the frosted-glass shower surround stays in step with the wall color, while the translucency of the glass allows light into the shower and adds to the open feel. The shower's half-wall creates the perfect shelf for pampering products. -Cottage Living
