This Interiors Expert Styled the Byron Bay Bathroom of Our Dreams
You could argue that the bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your house. But, its need to be practical, while also storing our hordes of necessary beauty equipment, can often mean it's the most neglected room in the house when it comes to thoughtful interior styling. We've been on a bit of a quest lately to help us make every room in our abodes Pinterest-worthy (honestly, a viral pin is our goal) without the need for any renovations, so we asked Allira Bell from the Temple & Webster style team to give us practical and easy ways to turn the setting of our morning maintenance rituals into a blissful coastal escape.
As we say goodbye to winter we're definitely lusting over all things Byron Bay, and wouldn't mind in the slightest having more than a few aspects of a chic-coastal aesthetic seeping into our lives. So, to nail the look, with an elevated touch, see below for Bell's four styling tenants she uses when trying to attain that coastal vibe in any bathroom.
ADD Tassels AND TEXTURE
"For an instant bohemian vibe, start with simple, yet effective, touches. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is to update neutral bath towels by choosing styles with on-trend tassels, chic fringing, and subtle textures. Turkish towels with rustic patterns in lightweight materials are a perfect alternative come summer. Also, hanging a classic cotton robe on the back of the bathroom door is a secret styling hack that offers a feeling of everyday elegance."
INVEST IN unconventional storage
"Look to clever storage solutions in rustic and eclectic designs, such as woven baskets in various sizes and shapes. Worry less about sleek minimalism and instead think in terms of proportion and placement—an intentional mess is the way to go."
Bell also suggests considering the textures you use. "To create the perfect carefree ambiance, a practical stool can easily be transformed to a stylish and edgy shelf space. Make sure to choose materials that translate eccentric tones, such as wood, woven bamboo, or Moroccan-inspired aluminum completed with an elegant cutwork."
LOOK FOR SMALLER DETAILS
"While coastal styling embraces the idea of incorporating rustic elements and vintage pieces, the addition of luxe touches can really help elevate your bathroom look. Bath and beauty products in sophisticated packaging look great when paired with vintage candlesticks and clay mugs."
FIND THE STATEMENT PIECE
"Now you have finessed the details, consider adding a statement piece to round out your look. Transform a reclaimed dresser or chest of drawers by repurposing it into a unique vanity, then complete the picture with a detailed, retro-infused mirror, and soften hard flooring with a natural jute rug. Harmony is key to making this look work."
