Is the bathroom your morning or evening place? For some of us, there’s nothing better than the morning sunshine streaming in and mixing with colorful art — this bright combination can energize the entire day. For those of you seeking an evening retreat, draw inspiration from the soothing effects of water: choose art and hues of blue or images of reclining figures to create a relaxed atmosphere. If there’s a free-standing tub and the walls near it are protected from water, stretched canvas can be placed where you can see it while soaking, or set a very large piece on the floor to lean on the wall. Even several small pieces on a shelf can have impact and be easily moved or changed to suit your mood. If there’s a wall by the sink with a bit of space, consider a pair of lush botanicals that remind you of fresh air and nature. The bathroom, with its limited space, is still a great room to get creative when placing art.
While it might seem an unlikely room, the bathroom is one of our favorite places to hang art. Sprucing up your powder room with a small painting or hanging a print in your ensuite is one of the easiest ways to add a “designer” quality to your home. Art can completely transform the vibe of your bathroom, so don’t be afraid to have fun with it!
