Equal Parts Versatile and Calming

Green is a calming, centering color, ideal for time in the tub or for a moment of mental peace while shaving before a busy day. Try the color as floor tiles, as wall color, as fixtures, or as cabinetry. All hues, from bright to muted, from yellow-tinged to blue, are good choices, really; yellow-greens are more energizing, while muted blue-greens will have a more mellowing effect. Here are some of our favorite green bathrooms, gathered in a gallery to inspire you.
