Goodbye, boring bathrooms! This fall, bath decor is making a statement with bold shapes, eye-catching patterns and stripes, and soothing soft shades. If you’re designing the powder room of your dreams or giving a new sense of style to a remodeled bathroom, our picks for the season’s best design trends will give you a sense of contemporary style that won’t fade or look outdated in the years to come. Here are our favorite design elements for a sophisticated, contemporary style.
Bath accessories in jewel tones work in any bathroom, whether you opt for neutral walls and fixtures, or you’re going big and bold with bohemian style. Add a pop of color with a rug like this Green and Blue Jewel Toned Mosaic Bathroom Mat, sold via Zazzle.
Graphic patterns add a touch of your own personal style and can be as understated or as dynamic as you choose. They work especially well on larger surfaces like wallpaper, curtains or a shower curtain like this Chevrons Shower Curtain by Society 6, sold via Houzz.
Color Blocking & Stripes
Color blocking and stripes never seem to go out of style. This fall’s trend is towards more vivid, lively colors such as the Lollipop Multicolor Bath Rug by Graciozza or the Trebam “Sest Redaka Orange” Tangerine Memory Foam Bath Mat by Kess Inhouse, both sold via Houzz.
Soft Blush Pink
Soft, blush pink has been showing up everywhere from graphic design to the fashion runway, so it was only a matter of time before the color trend hit home decor. This gentle, pretty shade works well in bathroom accessories like this Ekoln Soap Dispenser in Pale Pink, sold via Ikea, or this Bathroom Ceramic Accessories Set in Rose, sold via Cox and Cox.
Unique Textures & Shapes
Ultra-modern textures and unique shapes bring a touch of downtown art gallery style to your bathroom. Decorative pieces with unexpected contours are definite attention-getters. Great examples include this Ammie Folded Vase by Menu or the Elkhart 3 Piece Vase Set by Langley Street, both sold via Wayfair.
Stainless Steel in Distinctive Shapes
Gleaming stainless steel in simple yet distinctive shapes brings a sense of modernity and reliability, especially when it’s in an updated take on a familiar product. As evidenced by this Coronado 740 Series Robe Hook, via Seachrome.
