Asda has just introduced their “Wheel Of George” colour selector which helps you decide on decorating schemes and choosing complimentary accessories.
We chose some products from their bathroom range using green as a strong colour influence. We love using green in a bathroom and this extract is taken from the design experts on the Asda blog:
The colour of cleanliness and clarity, green is a popular choice… Not only is it gender-neutral but it also evokes the feeling of relaxation and serenity. If you’re planning on painting the whole room in one shade of green, be sure to test out a patch in situ beforehand. With too little natural light, green can be very dark, cold and, with paler hues, almost grey. If you fancy adding just pockets of bold emerald, pine or lime to a room, start with a warm white or beige base. From there, beautiful green blankets, cushions and artwork will add rich injections of colour.
We have the complimentary shades of warm white, cream, beige and stone in abundance. Our bathroom has buttermilk coloured painted walls on three sides and an exposed natural local stone on the fourth. We have a plain white bath suite and there are slate tiles for splash backs – with wooden doors, floor and window sill. So, a perfect backdrop for our new lime green towels!
We then went about choosing some other accessories in whites, creams and naturals. The hyacinth storage containers and painted wire baskets with rope handles will provide much needed extra storage for all those bottles and jars. There’s also a sandstone soap dispenser and – for a touch of pampering and luxury – fragrant candles and diffuser, soft towelling dressing gown and faux fur-lined slippers.
We love the vibrant green with its layers of natural, neutral shade behind. We also like to introduce small pops of bright orange and amethyst into the space – provided in this case by sweet pea flowers, bubble bath and tiger!
