Au naturel
Natural elements are known to invoke serenity and, when combined, create the perfect bathroom sanctuary. Bring the outside in and incorporate materials like concrete, marble, stone and salvaged wood for a harmonious, organic look.

Expert advice:
If using wood to bring natural warmth to your bathroom, ensure it has been treated so it is resistant to moisture. Lyndon suggests “decking-style timber floor inlays and indoor plants” to add some natural serenity to your space.



Keep it green
Transform your bathroom into a zen retreat by adding a little greenery. The health benefits of bringing plants indoors are infinite and creepers like English ivy are natural air filters that look beautiful winding their way up a wall. From a vertical garden to hanging potted plants, it is both easy and aesthetic to incorporate nature into your bathroom.

Expert advice: Connecting with nature by creating a view into the garden from the bathroom is a great way to create a small green space. People are also buying brands that help to reduce their carbon footprint, says Lyndon.
