Creating an atmosphere in your room is very important; if you’re going for this type of look, then creating an atmosphere can be done by using light, dark, shine, and shade. To create an atmospheric feel for this type of room, you want to dim the lighting down, so there are no bright lights or harsh shadows (e.g., use dimmer switches); you also want to make sure not to make any of the colors too bright. If you’re using white as one of the main colors, then use a creamy or soft shade of white; if you’re using browns, then try and find some that are almost cream (e.g., raw umber).

If you want this room to look old and antique-y, then faded paint effects would be ideal for you; another thing is rustic walls; however, they will have more of an effect on the atmosphere in a room than just painting with normal paints, so bear that in mind when deciding on decor, etc. Make sure there’s lots of texture going on, too, with things such as wooden beams across ceilings or exposed brickwork; these can give it an old feel too. Finally, when decorating a bathroom, try to keep to the natural look of flowers and plants; when they are fake, try and get ones that mimic real plants or flowers.



Try not to go overboard with patterns in this type of room, if you do, then the bathroom will end up looking cluttered. However, if you’re going for a neutral feel, then polka-dotted towels would work well with this style. Another thing is with soft furnishings until you are sure about what type of look you’re going for, I’d recommend keeping these simple too; earthy colors are good here, such as green/brown/beige.
When decorating this type of room, it’s important to remember there are no set rules on how to do it best, so experiment by using different types of lighting, different paint effects, and also which colors you use. Bad lighting can make the room look smaller than it actually is, so make sure you have some nice big windows to let light in if this is an issue for you.
