Elle Decoration Bathroom Trends 2019

From Monochrome to pastels, we've rounded up the hottest bathroom looks and products to help you recreate them:


The modern way to do monochrome is to ensure you have an intense pattern; Monochrome is the most classic tonal pairing, but there's a new contemporary way to showcase black and white - dazzling geometric designs that overwhelm the eye.  For a standout, bold effect on tiles or textures choose a pattern in which two colours have a equal weighing - think zigzags, chevrons, squares, circles. For something a bit softer try a white base with subtle black detailing.
