10 ideas for gorgeous green bathrooms

If like me you’re a devotee to Pinterest, you’ll have seen the increase in green bathrooms being pinned to my Pinterest board, where I store and collect all the ideas that I love.  In fact, across all my social channels I’ve been sharing my addiction to gorgeous green bathrooms especially over on Instagram. To be fair, I’ve been sharing green interiors FULL STOP. So much so, that I might need an intervention, but before someone steps in and says “hold up, wait a minute” I want to collate my best ideas for gorgeous green bathrooms. Maybe then I’ll have satisfied the green demon within.

Green with its wide variety of intensities and hues, suits almost any decorating style, but you could argue so does any other colour. But there is something soothing and calming in green which I believe to be related to the inherent relationship green has with nature. It’s also closely linked to wellness. We all know how that’s the biggest design trend in a century – bringing the outside in. Saying that, as a colour it can be a little bit tricky to get right, mostly because you need to understand the undertones of any given green to build a successful colour palette. There’s a big differnce between olive, sage and emerald green so it’s not surprising that what works with them should vary too.

I know designers who swear that all bathrooms should be white or cream for longevities sake. The thought process being that you shouldn’t get too caught up in the latest trendy accent colour or tile choice. I’m all for a beautiful all white space from time to time, but always thinking “will I like it in 10 years time?” feels like you’re wishing your life away to me. Warm whites and neutrals are very flattering in bathrooms and complement the hues found in many countertops and tiles. Soft greys are also a safe choice – who would have thought 10 years ago we’d be saying this, when grey was considered institutional, cold and depressing. But with all things it’s what you pair it with and how you use it that’s important. Both grey and warm whites can be very good palette partners to green dependant on the tone.

Planning a bathroom should be a walk in the park, I mean we all use one every day, we know what they’re suppose to do and you don’t have to worry about soft furnishings. So here are some examples I’ve gathered of design pro’s and style conscious homeowners nailing gorgeous green bathroom designs.

Green and Grey

Introducing green and grey as interior partners. It works. It’s a surprisingly fresh colour palette that can result in a serene yet crisp modern look.

Green and Brass

Green and brass are a match made in heaven. Brass hardware and light fixtures complement green so well, it’s the strong “yellow” tone of the brass. Yellow and green being close to each other on the colour wheel and of course appearing in nature frequently together. In the example below by Clara Jung of Banner Day Interiors, the olive tiles are also paired with plenty of white – see below for more examples of green and white – which always works well.

Green and White bathroom

Green and white is a classic pairing, it’s also the easiest one to pull off even on a budget. In bathrooms that are mostly white, green feature tiles that are set around a splash back area can be enough. In both of the examples directly below, the green hue is courtesy of green paint, a super achievable way to introduce the colour on a budget.

    So many gorgeous bathrooms here. I love all the deep greens that we are seeing more of now. I have a Pinterest board full of lovely rooms featuring this colour

    These are all awesome but I am a green fanatic. So many rooms in my house are green including mint green crackled glazed tiles in our bathroom. Personally I don;t agree with white with longevity. It’s just boring and wouldn’t bring me any joy. Give me green any day!

    I really love green as a colour, I think it exudes freshness and reminds us all of nature! I love the turquoise tiles you posted — those remind me of the Med!

    These green bathrooms are beautiful! I feel like I am not giving green enough credit with interiors. Your blog posts are making me see the bright green side of things. Love it

    I think my favourite has got to be the Art Deco themed bathroom – the colours feel very authentic. Some great inspiration here.
