Green With Envy — Four Ways

By Christa Terry

I’ve always been a fan of white bathrooms, simply because white says clean to me. Unfortunately, white only says clean when it is clean, and white bathrooms show every tiny speck of dirt mere minutes after being scrubbed down from top to bottom. As much as I love the look, circumstances — i.e., not being able to clean the bathroom three times a day — have forced me to choose other colors in my own domicile. Green is one of my top second choices because it brings to mind the sea and all things natural.


I adore the shading variations in these glossy and matte sea green Heath Ceramics tiles because they add depth to an otherwise small space.


This bathroom, with its frosted glass wall, is green in more ways than one. A huge shower doubles as a home for humidity-loving houseplants.


The a limestone-fronted soaking tub in this greenish-blue bathroom is spa-like enough to encourage even the most frenzied bather to relax.


A vintage tub paired with subway tiles in retro colors come together to create a bathroom that is as energizing as it is visually compelling.

    The first one looks like bamboo. Beautiful and so very soothing.

  2. Never teh Bride Says:

    You’re right, wyldhoney. I couldn’t see it before, but now it’s all I see.

  3. Carol Says:

    Mr. Carol is a tile contractor – will have to show him that first one and ask about the possibilities for the downstairs bathroom…that is gorgeous tile!

  4. Never teh Bride Says:

    Now that’s handy, Carol! Would that The Beard was one, too.

    All of these are gorgeous. My bathroom is green as well, but with white subway tiles. I wish I had seen this before I did that-the first picture makes me die of happiness. I would turn into Gwyneth Paltrows character in the Royal Tenenbaums and never leave the bathtub.
