If you’re interested in interior design, then it probably won’t have escaped your notice that a key trend for 2023
continues to be incorporating nature-inspired tones into our homes. This is also big for bathrooms, as the colour
palette of nature helps to promote a feeling of calm and relaxation, reducing stress levels and helping us to unwind
As our bathrooms have increasingly become sanctuaries to escape from the stresses of daily life, this is the perfect
trend for creating a calming space in which we can relax and unwind. Biophilic design is the term which describes
this trend of connecting nature and interiors – a popular look which can be achieved in a variety of ways.
Earthy tones such as rich browns, terracotta and beige all feed into the natural look and are grounding colours
which provide a sense of serenity and calm. They can also easily be paired with a range of décor, including
wood-effect tiles and flooring, as well as stone-inspired tiles and can be rich and opulent or have a lighter hue,
depending on your preference.
Connecting nature and interiors is an ongoing trend in 2023.
Adding earthy tones to your bathroom
There are many ways to infuse your bathroom with earthy tones – from the tiles you choose, to your flooring,
washbasins, baths and accessories. Warm and
inviting, earthy colours are all about bringing a cheerful and optimistic vibe into interiors – creating a welcoming
space which lifts our spirits.
It’s a good idea to mix one cool and one warm shade, if you want to achieve a more balanced look. For example, rich
chocolate tones can be paired with lighter neutrals – cool creams and more Scandi-inspired décor.
Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2023 is Viva Magenta, which is a blend of warm and cool tones – a hybrid colour
inspired by the rich red found in nature. It signals strength and is a bold shade which can nevertheless be
incorporated in various ways throughout your bathroom.
Indeed, you don’t have to go full-on Viva Magenta if the palette is a bit too zesty for your tastes. Instead, you
can simply use it to inspire your bathroom décor by choosing colours which give a nod to magenta without fully
embracing it. Think somewhere within the pink-purple colour wheel, if you want to introduce some of this into your
A very versatile trend, earthy tones subsequently include everything from warm browns, bronzes and golds to more
fiery russet reds, blush pinks and magenta shades, along with honeyed tones and greens.
