Soothing Bathroom Color Schemes

Blue-Green bathroom
The right color palette has the ability to inspire tranquility. Transform your bathroom into a spa-worthy sanctuary with our favorite calming color schemes.

Pewter + Ivory

In a colorful, busy world, coming home to a calm, neutral space feels like a breath of fresh air. Soft pewter walls mingle effortlessly with a classic double vanity in ivory. The gray hue continues in the curtains and marble countertops and shines against the room's creamy trim.

Beige + Chocolate + Creamy White

Brown tones bathe this traditional bathroom in warm and inviting character. Deep chocolate covers a wood-clad built-in bathtub, which blends seamlessly with lighter khaki-color walls. Creamy white emphasizes the architectural detail of surrounding windows. 

Navy Blue + Silver + Powder White

Blue universally pleases due to its familiar associations with sea and sky, its calming properties, and its versatility. A deep blue backsplash showcases a clean, modern tub. The hue repeats in a window treatment that visually expands the space while highlighting silver finishes found in the bathroom's chandelier and vanity.

Buttercream + White + Light Blue

Incorporate the warm undertones of a sunset with a neutral yellow hue that hits the just-right note between stark white and full-on color. When combined with white, the glowing gold creates a decadent backdrop for plush blue accents.

Seafoam + Cottage White + Silver

With its pale feel that doesn't overwhelm, seafoam is the perfect soothing shade of green. White beaded-board paneling on the ceiling and walls balances the color and provides an architectural layer. Vintage silver fixtures add glamour to the calming wall color.

Sand + Light Pink + White + Silver

A beachy palette of mixed-sand hues ripples through this master bathroom. Color comes in the form of punchy pink towels. Silver fixtures and accessories provide shimmer against a crisp white tub and trim.


Taupe + Light Gray + Wood Tones

The rain-cloud gray found in marble relaxes and cools a bathroom. Warm it up with rich neutrals like a deep taupe, almost brown, wall color and wood plank floors. A metallic bathtub provides tranquil texture and sheen.

White + Lavender

An old-fashioned favorite, lavender fits in well with cottage-style interiors. The soft and sweet purple shade is a chic upgrade to an otherwise all-white bathroom. 

Charcoal + White

Don't be afraid of dark bathroom walls. Deep hues can create a sense of comfort and element of drama. Charcoal, which is warmer than other grays but not as harsh as black, combines with white in this serene space for understated elegance. Royal green accents found in the curtain trim and wall art rev up the combo. 

Periwinkle + White + Silver

Teaming pale blue with white is a no-brainer; the duo packs a pleasing punch in this master bathroom. A bit of silver and marble mosaic floor tiles bring an adult sensibility to what could otherwise be an overly sweet pastel scheme. 


Eggshell White + Tan

Make neutrals the starring role of your bathroom with a blend of beige hues. A variety of textures help contrast the color in this spa-like guest bath that features both matte pebble tiles and sleek white subway tile. An off-white linen window shade and wood-like porcelain floor provide an extra layer of rustic warmth.

Dusty Teal + White + Mocha

Just like in nature, various shades of green play well together. Layer light and dark shades of a single hue in your bathroom backsplash with a neutral accent color such as white. This rich teal wall color strikes a pleasing note between green and blue. The bluish green emits cool luxury against a warm wood vanity.
