Eight contemporary bathrooms coloured with soothing shades of green

Green bathroom interior

Glazed tiles, waxed concrete and tactile plaster are among the surface finishes used to create the earthy green bathrooms featured in our latest lookbook.

The colour green is widely known to have a calming and comforting effect, thanks to its links to the natural world.

This lends itself well to architects and designers designing for wellbeing, particularly in bathroom interiors where the goal is to relax and unwind.

From a flat in the bustling streets of Paris to a secluded forest residence in rural Poland, the homes in this lookbook demonstrate how embracing green is an effective way to create a soothing atmosphere in any bathroom, no matter its style, size or setting.

This is the latest in our lookbooks series, which provides visual inspiration from Dezeen’s archive. For more inspiration, see previous lookbooks featuring imperfect zellige tiles, blue interiors and living rooms with 1970s-style furnishings.
