Despite being the smallest room in the house – or the hotel – the guest bathroom can be a calling card, a place to express personality and experiment with colours. Bathroom objects in strong colours can be combined with expressive wall coverings that highlight an individual wall or smaller surface. Wallpapers, like the vibrant range from Graham & Brown with graphic designs or botanical patterns, along with selected tiles, or coloured paints are especially well-suited for such a project.

All of these design elements  form the perfect backdrop for Duravit’s Vitrium bathroom collection with its reserved designs and intense matt colours. Furniture, washbasin, toilet, and bathtub in strong colours The Vitrium colour concept was curated by Christian Werner, who was also responsible for the formal design of the furniture and washbasins. The total of six colours make their presence felt without dominating and they harmonise perfectly with one another.

The colour palette can be divided into the three neutral shades Matt Light Gray, Matt Dark Gray, and Matt White as well as the three rich shades Matt Green-Blue, Matt Parlour Blue, and Matt Cinnamon. This broad range of choices ensures that the right tone can be found for any bathroom – from the minimalist designer bathroom through to the modern rustic style.

“Colour also determines how we perceive a product,” explained Christian Werner, Designer. ” It’s an emotion, because everyone responds to it differently. Multiple colours create a kind of colour resonance, something that ideally creates a harmony. And colours for an interior can never be thought of in isolation, but always in the context of the room.”
