This Summer, Design a Brilliant Blue Bohemian Bath

Saffron Marigold - Updated: July 12, 2019

A blue bathroom is a perennial favorite. Conjuring imagery of sea and sky, rich hues of blue possess the ability to calm and to refresh—no wonder spas use blue frequently. If you long for the beach or daydream about spending time outside under a cloudless sky, then blue is the color for you.

Now, you don’t need to repaint or re-tile to create a bath inspired by sea and sky, nor do you need to fill jars with seashells, hang fish sculptures on the wall, or paint clouds on the ceiling for a blue bathroom to bring you a sense of endless summer. Try these blue bathroom ideas instead:

  • Use royal blue, cobalt blue, or sky blue to add brightness to your space
  • Look for patterned fabrics that call to mind tropical locales
  • Highlight your windows to celebrate any natural light that comes into your bath

Even smaller spaces have focal points, and the shower (or bath) is the common focal point in many bathrooms. By choosing a dramatic and colorful blue shower curtain, you can quickly and easily bring more blue into your bathroom and achieve the look you desire.

Midnight Lotus white and blue floral Shower Curtain: Florals and a classic palette combine to create the perfect design for an elegant blue bathroom. The long-loved combination of blue and white appear in the form of lotus flowers set against a striking royal blue background.

Casablanca Blues moroccan blue shower curtain: Inspired by Moroccan design, a blend of sky blue, royal blue, and Moroccan mint green bring an eye-catching design to any blue bathroom. It’s at once vibrant, exotic, and summery.

Mosaique Blue tile inspired blue shower curtain:  This bright shower curtain sings of summer with its apricot, teal, and bright blue tiled accents set against a sky-blue background. It’s altogether cheerful, capturing the essence of delightful summer days.

Art and Mirrors

In smaller spaces like bathrooms, mirrors are essential: not only do they let you see your own reflection, but they also help bounce light around the room. Seek out mirrors that come in shapes and frames that complement your focal point (typically the shower curtain). Likewise, look for artwork that goes with the design (and makes you smile!).
