You may not think of turquoise and brown as colors you would use to decorate the bathroom, but you’d be surprised at the great looks you can achieve! While turquoise is often bold and bright, brown is a neutral color that balances and soothes. From modern to jazzy or classic, you can create many looks using shades of these two contrasting colors.
By the way, we’re not talking boring brown here; shades of sand, peachy brown and chocolate work to make your bath its most beautiful ever!
Start with the floor
By starting with the floor, you can create the basis of your decorating. Linoleum or ceramic tile can be found with an interesting mix of turquoise and brown shades from light to dark. Once installed, you can build the room around the shades in the floor. Even if your tile or linoleum is light, you can add deeper shades in the room for depth and contrast.
Have a large bath? Start with chocolate brown
If you have a large bathroom, you can afford to use darker colors for the walls. Consider a chocolate brown, which adds a rich, soothing atmosphere to the room. Porcelain sinks and chrome fixtures along with bright turquoise accessories add punch and pizazz.
A shower curtain with bright punches of turquoise in a modern design brightens up the room. Add wall art and a free-standing cabinet painted in turquoise, and you have a room that is bold, modern and yet relaxing.
Think of the beach
When you go to the beach, think of how the colors play off of each other. Turquoise water, sand, stones and other elements of nature play together to create surroundings that are soothing and spa-like. Use the colors of the beach in your decor if you want a lighter, calmer look. Shades of sand, peachy-brown and turquoise make for a room that brings the beach to mind.
Add accents of wicker, a glass vase filled with twigs, artwork depicting the beach for the walls, and plenty of plush towels in sand and turquoise patterns, and you have a refreshing retreat!
Want more drama?
If you want to liven things up a bit to make your bath sparkle with drama, consider bringing shades of coral or red to the mix. While brown can be the dominating color for walls and floors, a mix of coral and turquoise really makes the room come to life. Consider sparse splashes of red or coral in floral arrangements, candles and artwork, while keeping turquoise as the main color for bath rugs, towels and the shower curtain. The addition of some red brings in warmth and spark and makes the room dazzle!
It may be hard for you to imagine how a bathroom would look using these colors, but it is absolutely beautiful – especially for those who enjoy a more modern, chic look. Browse through magazines and search online for photos of bathrooms decorated using these colors, and you will see that the look is extremely vibrant and appealing.
