Picture a typical modern bathroom. Lots of white (or gray), minimalist, streamlined decor, right? It may be fashionable, but it’s also sterile and almost bland. Now, that doesn’t mean that the vintage pastel-colored bathrooms are any better, but monochromatic is not necessarily the way to go. You can have both: a sleek, modern, yet colorful bathroom.
While the phrase “pop of color” elicits dramatic eye-rolling groans from those who have pops of color coming out of their ears, a bit of color is absolutely vital in a bathroom. Introduce color into your bathroom to wake it up, but don’t go overboard; a vividly-colored main fixture set against a monochromatic bathroom strikes just the right balance of serenity and drama.

If you’re afraid to make the leap permanently, try colored accessories – soap dishes, linens, seating, even faucets and shower heads – to add some zing.
