Bathroom Three Ways #3

BRIGHTIcelandic bathroom post #3. Are you ready?! This is the final one and I've called it Bright.

To remind you what we're working on, that's the bathroom above. It's being remodeled as we speak and my moodboards are just the icing on the cake for this reader as I'm sure the bathroom itself will be stunning.

Here are the components in today's Bright theme. I've chosen mainly sources available on Iceland but also webstores that offer some international shipping:

1. If this were my bathroom and I'd choose this theme I'd go for pure white walls but there's also a nice shade of white from Jotun called Bomull (=cotton) which would give a little more warmth.

2. Again just to remind you that there are cute ways to disguise random ugly tiles in your bathrooms.

3. Love these colorful hooks. Each family member could get their own color.

4. Black and white goes well with the bright colors and I can never resist polka dots. Toiletry and makeup bags pretty enough to stay on a shelf or counter.

5. I had this Fräck mirror in my very first apartment and I loved it. Did you know that Fräck translates into Cheeky?

6. I would consider switching from a shower stall door to shower curtains. There have been discussions here on my blog about this before but I just like the idea of something flowy instead of that cubicle feel you get from the door. Also a lot of shower curtains can easily go in the laundry machine which I prefer to scrubbing the door. Curtains can be sewn out of any fabric and then lined with a polyester liner which can also be laundered.

7. Check out this unusual laundry basket. The image went weird on me but you can see it more closely in the link.

8. In my world there is no such thing as too many storage boxes. This is a nice black and white one.

9. Did you know Marimekko make soaps? Now you do.

10. Bright white and matching.You can never go wrong with that.

That was that! So which color scheme out of the three is your favorite if this were your bathroom? Fill out my little poll at he bottom, just for fun :). 

NATURALHere's a reminder of the Natural theme above and the Soft below.

I love all three and can't actually vote. If I had a house with three bathrooms, I'd actually probably do one of each!


I agree. The style of the cabinets and sink dictates more modern accessories, plus the colours would be more uplifting in the long, dark Icelandic winter. I would also add a couple of colourful, twisty pile throw rugs from Ikea, (you know the ones that I mean) for in front of the sink and the shower / toilet.


I just voted for the natural theme, but I must say - they are all really lovely, and as always, with a superb eye for detail!


Just going by the accessories, I personally prefer the natural look. But with how sterile this bathroom is, I voted for bright. It needs some punch/lift!


For a smoker like me I believe 7 is the best choice.


Like that laundry basket. I have feeling that you can find it in Thailand some tradition market.


I have the fifth one when I was young never thought gonna see here and looks so different.

Oh I like the bright theme a lot. The colors excite me, and I like that you used black and white with them. I would use it in a bathroom for my teenagers with out a second thought, but I think my favorite is still the natural theme.

Egentligen gillar jag den "softa" kombinationen bäst, men jag kan bara inte med lila, så jag röstar på naturfärgerna. (Änglavingarna är ju för söta!)


Amazing laundry basket! How do you open it? I would go, as I assumed earlier - for bright.
But would choose glass shower door rather then curtains. I love the feeling of really scrubbing my tube in order to feeling the cleanliness. Curtains are now in my bathroom because of a space problem and I hate this sticky wet feeling on my legs I get during showering and having curtain around me or on my body.
Plus I don't like to take them all the time up and down (because it is very high and very hard to reach) and I have to - having white curtains. In my last apartment I had something like this and loved it.




You could move this door backwards and forwards or fold together when not using.

It was very easy to clean, with window squeegee in one minute clean and dry.


Great things you´ve found - I liked all three, but in different ways.

The winner for me in the end was the soft theme; mainly because I could live with those colors for longer in my own home. The bright theme appeal though I´d get tired faster - and the natural theme is lovely but a bit boring to me. And yet I like all three, so if I had three bathrooms at home I just might try this out! :-D
