A few flowers are used as decor, perched next to the black wall. Flowers are very calming and relaxing, and a great way to bring the feeling of nature indoors. It's a good idea to include a few flowers in a home spa. The mirror here too is a great decorative accessory. It has a fun shape, almost in the shape of a sun, that adds a unique character to the bathroom. Even the wall art here, large floral designs, add a nice touch to the bathroom to create an overall mood and experience that feels like a spa retreat.
Tiles of course are very important in any bathroom. When choosing tiles for a spa bathroom at home its important to be very strategic with colour and design. Don't choose anything too loud as it will take away from the soothing affects a spa should have. These bathroom tiles are a great example of the look you should strive for. The shower tiles are a cool mosaic pattern using a light palette with the colours of greens and blues. These two colours are extremely relaxing and perfect for a spa. The rest of the bathroom uses white tiles which keeps the space light and airy, and coupled with the blues and greens of the shower, provides a perfect set up for an at home spa.
