How to Very Peri your bathroom

Blue hues are a trend that has always been commonplace in bathrooms. They create a serene environment ideal for that relaxing atmosphere everybody wants to experience. Very peri certainly ticks this box.

Very peri has a slightly warm tone that allows it to work perfectly as a bold statement shade. Or it has the ability to highlight your bathroom with smaller accents or pops of colour. It's the type of new color bold enough to really revive your bathroom. Unlike the well known saying, blue and green should never be seen, very peri actually pairs really well with green tones. It is also a complimentary colour to pastel pink and aqua as well as neutral stones and biscuit for example.

Go BIG and use veri peri as your primary paint colour. The tone complements any shade of bathroom furniture, from white to stone and even pale and dark grey.

However, if you're not quite ready for that level of commitment you can choose to simply add a splash of the shade with accessories at least. Some fake periwinkle flowers, a new shower curtain or some new fluffy towels will lift the entire room.
