Get the botanical look in your bathroom

Posted: 16th Feb 2016

Do you find yourself after a botanical theme in your bathroom? It really doesn't need to be a problem - you'll be surprised as to how easy it can be to make it work!


1 Be bold!
Don't be afraid of mixing patterns. For instance, you can combine leafy and botanical prints to create a fantastically eclectic, jungle-like setting for your bathroom.

2 Utilise the great outdoors
Don't be afraid to bring items you've found outside into your bathroom. You can add some real character with something as simple as a house plant or foliage. And if you feel your bathroom is lacking for natural light, preventing plant growth, you can always use artificial plants!


3 Prevent the closed-in feeling
If you do go for this look, you have to avoid ending up with a closed-in look. This can be countered by creating an illusion of space, through reflective surfaces such as glass.
