We have to admit, pastel colors have an undeniable charm. Whether you love collecting sweet-colored dinnerware, prints, or other accessories, we’re sure you’ll agree when we say that these additions can instantly brighten up a nook or an area at home. While we’re used to seeing all-white or neutral-colored T&Bs, adding subtle pops of color can instantly add personality to your private space. Save up for a colorful bathroom redo with these ideas and five cute photos you can bookmark as pegs:

Paint the backing of your shelves.

Don’t leave your shelves plain and bland. Step up your style game by painting the backing in millennial pink or powder blue. Colorful storage pieces are enough to liven up your bathroom—you don’t need to fill it with accessories and toiletries. If you have a similar storage piece as seen in the photo above, you can make it more playful by painting each niche a different color. Work with three light shades that you can alternate for a quirky appeal. 

RL Tip: Consider working with Nippon Paint's Rosy Pink, Sweet Yellow, and Blue Chiffon.

Incorporate pastels through tiles.

You can achieve an accent wall in the bathroom using light-colored tiles. See if you can install blue-colored pieces behind your sink or even in the shower area. If installing the tiles the traditional way is too ordinary for you, you can consult with a designer or a professional to see how you can create a charming herringbone pattern.

Find similar tiles at La Europa Ceramica.

Keep it simple with themed accessories.

Choosing accessories in a single color is an easy, budget-friendly way of updating the bathroom. Settle on a color and pick bathmats, shower curtains, and even towels in the said hue. Take your cue from the photo above—to create a pink-themed private space, the owner opted for pink towels and furnishings in varying shades of pink. By playing around with different shades, you get to create a balanced setup that’s not overwhelming. See if you can bring in pieces with patterns as well to make it interesting.

Have fun with stripes.

If you want to maintain the pristine charm of your T&B while incorporating a bit of color, you can opt for white fixtures and creative walls. Paint vertical pastel stripes on your wall to achieve a private space with a bit of country charm. Light pink, yellow, and teal are ideal color choices as these work well with white. Give your setup a boost by installing a captivating lighting piece or sprucing it up with plants in woven planters.

A captivating lighting piece in a pastel shade? It’s possible! Source at stores like Habitat and Home Cartel for pieces you can add to your space. These stores offer pendant lights in lovely colors that can complement the overall look of your T&B. If you have an solid-colored accent wall, you may want to pick a lighting fixture that matches your chosen color for a cohesive look.
