Welcome nature into the bath for an organic, harmonious design
Posted: December 22, 2021 | Word Count: 474
Architecture and interior design often take inspiration from the environment. Whether it’s the form of a structure inspired by the outdoors or the incorporation of native plants and natural textiles, organic elements make elegant designs. Renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed vision is rooted in the natural world. Pay tribute to Wright’s enduring legacy by incorporating his values in design decisions — from colors derived from the field and woods to prioritizing simplicity and sustainability in the bath.
Adopt a sophisticated, natural space using principles of organic architecture. Be intentional with every material and design choice to conceive an environment that is functional and balanced. Incorporate organic materials such as wood, concrete or metals into a space for a harmonious expression of nature. In the bath, elements such as lighting, wood accents, water features, and fixtures with sleek, minimal lines produce a relaxing bathing experience. Start with a neutral color palette using colors such as sage or tumbled stone for a subtle backdrop. Then, layer more color — such as pops of teal and red — to integrate unique touches that elevate a space, while staying in tune with the overall design.
Simplicity in form
The true value of a design is judged by its effortlessness and repose. A blank canvas allows for the chosen features to shine and can create tranquility within the bath. To achieve simplicity, remove excess and opt for minimalism. Choose fixtures in the bath that are purposeful and add to the overall form of the space. Finally, add touches of warmth through soft lighting and materials to brighten and balance the design, keeping harmony in mind.
Create nature indoors
Bring in elements of the environment throughout the home to fashion a continuous, cohesive design. Establish a landscape-inspired interior by styling live greenery and plants throughout.
Select fixtures that bring together beautiful features found in nature in a modernized way, such as those from the Frank Lloyd Wright® Bath Collection by Brizo®. The collection draws from his philosophy of organic architecture through elements such as avant-garde water flow and natural wood incorporated into the design. The Raincan Showerhead provides a luxurious experience through the distinctive rush of the Canopy Spray, which activates a built-in light by hydrogenator for a dramatic effect — evoking a sense of rainfall.
Sustainability in design
Elect for green living wherever possible. Intentionally select renewable materials — such as bamboo and cork — and consider the environment at every step, to build a long-lasting, timeless abode. Choose fixtures that are at the intersection of sleek, clean design and conscious sustainability. Pick out WaterSense® Labeled lavatory faucets, showerheads and handshowers to ensure a space that is both luxurious and green.
