Let’s be honest – after a hard day at the office and a stressful commute home or a busy day at home preparing breakfasts, packing lunches, carpools, several after-school activities, homework, making dinner, and taking care of the dishes – we all long for just a few precious moments of silence, serenity, and rejuvenation. That’s why so many on Pinterest are looking for an inspiration and ideas to create their own home oasis – spa-like bathroom with nature-inspired design elements, serene wall art, and reclaimed wood textures for a soothing effect. Natural stones, custom teak wood furniture, rain showers – these design elements not only bring energy into the environment but create a spa-like atmosphere to nurture the soul and bring peace and calm to the mind. Let explore some of the timeless design trends that will help you create your own oasis.
Learn from nature
No matter what Pantone color of the year is dominating the charts, you’ll never find bright colors in a high-end spa. The colors that you see in nature, such a warm whites, cool greys, muted blues, and calm greens will always evoke the mood of tranquility and peace. You can still create a visual interest with a natural palette by including various shades of earth tones throughout your space: walls, plush towels, vases, textured rugs, floor tiles, and wooden accents.
Borrow a few elements
Elements we find in a natural oasis, such a stones, plants, water, and the sky will do the trick to recreate a similar atmosphere in your spa-like bathroom at home. That’s why skillful designers will place a free-standing oval tub by a picturesque window surrounded by stone tiles and statement plants. Oval-shaped bathtub makes a luxurious statement while its sleek form adds an organic yet modern touch for your spa-like bathroom. Add a few reclaimed wooden elements, such as a towel ladder, wooden centerpiece, black rocks for a hot stone massage and you have created your own everyday spa on a budget.
Remember the gentle massage from a waterfall you stumbled upon in the mountains? Why not recreate a similar experience at home with a rain shower that will bring the serenity of nature and healing powers of water to soothe your muscles and body aches?
Focus on serenity
Close your eyes… what is the first thing you remember about your last visit to the spa? It is probably the invigorating smell of lemongrass and lavender essential oils. Don’t forget to incorporate essential oil diffuser for your spa-like bathroom at home. While lavender and chamomile reduce stress and promote deeper sleep, citrus and peppermint will help sharpen focus in the morning. Strategic sensory infusion of essential oils will help you create a perfect environment for your at-home-getaway oasis at any time of the day. Candles instead of bright lights, soft music, a serene wall art, and potted plants – all these natural elements will put the necessary finishing touches on your home spa oasis.
