When creating a bathroom that soothes the senses and revitalises the soul, nature is the ultimate source of inspiration. Rich, earthy colours like sun-dried ochre, honey limestone, deep burgundy, scorched gold and olive green will intensify the atmosphere of the room, so these are the perfect hues if you’re working with a large space with good natural light.

If your room is on the small side, don’t think that a spa retreat is out of your reach. Choose cool colours with low reflective value like turquoise, azure and aquamarine to soften natural light. Heighten the effect with textured surfaces, like a pebbled floor tile that gently massages the feet or a textured paint that mimics the feel of cool stone.
