10 Spa-Like Bathrooms with Modern, Rustic Style

From the offset, rustic and modern styles may seem to be at opposite ends of the spectrum. In some cases, they are. However, when you combine rustic and modern elements together, the results can actually be harmonious and full of character.

The rough, casual look of rustic decor mixed with the clean, streamlined look of the modern style creates a beautiful contrast. The mixture works well in any space but today, I’m focusing on the style in a bathroom. Rustic, modern bathrooms have a spa-like appeal that suits the space well. The cleanliness of the modern style gives you that luxurious feel most people love to have in a bathroom while the rustic elements make it feel earthy and comfortable.

Here are 10 beautiful examples of rustic, modern bathrooms to give you some inspiration and ideas.

10 Rooms That Are Lovely in Lime Green

One of the most energetic colors in the rainbow is lime green. What I love about this color is how lively it is while also having a soothing, relaxing vibe, as well. It reminds me of a tropical forest where you at once feel refreshed and reinvigorated while also feeling at peace with nature all around you.

Lime green works well in any space in the home. A little bit goes a long way in a few accents but if you want to take it a step further, a bold, vibrant touch of lime green on an accent wall or sofa will make a stunning impact in your decor. There are a ton of beautiful ways to use this fresh color.

Here are 10 examples of rooms with lime green decor to give you some ideas and inspiration.
