“For those colours which you wish to be beautiful, always first prepare a pure white ground.”
– Leonardo Da Vinci
The most common colour for a bathroom is undoubtably white or some kind of variation thereof.
White helps to achieve that minimalist look of organisation and clean lines which we associate with cleanliness.
The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in our home, so it’s important it looks clean and uncluttered. Healthy body, healthy mind.
As Da Vinci suggests, you don’t just have to stick to pure white. White can be paired beautifully with greys and black for that monochrome look.
It also provides an excellent basis for adding a splash of colour in the form of wall hangings, towels and other accessories, without diluting those smooth and crisp clean lines.
“White…is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black. God paints in many colours, but he never paints so gorgeously – I had almost said so gaudily – as when he paints in white.”
– G. K. Chesterton
