Modern Country

This bathroom was designed within a master bedroom suite (design by Veronique Hendriks/Design Studio V). The choice to paint the walls with Fresco in the color Black Smoke creates a good backdrop for the wall art and bathroom furniture, and adds a pleasant contrast. The color mimics the stone vanity top and metal lights above. The walls were given a finish with Dead Flat Eco Sealer so they’re protected and easy to wipe clean. It’s a wonderful sealer to use, easy to apply and the Fresco walls still have that lovely matte, authentic finish. But do keep in mind that it’ll deepen the color somewhat, which worked out perfectly in this scheme.

The organic shape and soft white color of the stone bath in front of the same Fresco Black Smoke finish adds to the purity of the bathroom. The ceiling is painted in Pure & Original’s Traditional Paint color White, which keeps it all pure and simple as well as light and airy.

But if you’re like me, you’re probably happy to have one particular element in the bathroom that could be given the eye-catching make-over, or could be the element that gives you the inspiration to choose colors. Like these…
