How to create a bathroom look inspired by Palm Springs

Indulge your feminine side with a modern take on old-Hollywood glamour inspired by the sophisticated mid-century style of California’s resort town


How to create a bathroom look inspired by Palm Springs

+ Opt for functional pieces in brass for a luxe yet utilitarian aesthetic. In this space the light fixture, vase, stools and hooks are all brass, an adaptable material that will work with many other trends.

+ To create a Palm Springs vibe, we have combined peachy pink shades with sandy timber tones, and added subtle patterns and textures.

+ You can try this trend in a more affordable way by changing your towelling. There is a great range of patterned towels out there and they need not be expensive.

+ Buy a natural-toned set of main towels as a base, then add a feature hand towel which you can change as new trends come about.

+ For a simple yet effective look, add a cut palm frond for a lush splash of greenery. Palm fronds last a long time, especially if you change the water every few days.

+ Don’t scrimp on luxury items. A linen robe, velvet pouf and scented candle can make your bathroom a more indulgent place to relax in.
