By STACY SENIOR Bathrooms in new homes and those that have recently been remodeled are often designed using white: in tile, tubs, sinks, countertops, cabinetry and trim. The bright surfaces make the room appear clean and large, but they can also give the room a stark, cold appearance. If you have a white bathroom, there are some simple decorating ideas to make the room look warm and interesting. Pull from the color palette you've used in adjoining rooms. Pare it down to one or two hues. It's easier to work with fewer colors, and this minimalist approach creates an understated, clean, and uncluttered look. Take it a step further than decorating with just bath towels and framed pictures in these colors. Strive for a more sophisticated look by bringing these colors in on a grander scale through wallcoverings and fabrics. One of the simplest ways to do this, if you're timid when it comes to using pattern, is with a monochromatic color scheme. With a tonal or textural monochromatic design, you can create a soft, tailored. thing you can't achieve with paint And you can enhance the room with coordinating borders and fabrics for window treatments and furnishings. To warm up the room, try adding wooden or wicker storage boxes, baskets and a sisal rug. You can use wood-tone pieces with a framed mirror to provide contrast to the monochromatic color scheme. The mirror also helps expand space. You can decorate windows with wood blinds to catch rays of sunlight and gives a warm, tropical feel reminiscent of a favorite summer vacation spot. Replacing small window toppers and mini-blinds with valances and treatments that have a fit more fabric also helps warm up the room. The fabric's insulating properties help cut down on echoes. If space permits, you might also add a chair or upholstered bench. It makes the room feel cozier. The chair shown has been re-upholstered with a fabric that matches the wallcovering. Slipcovers are another way to go. These extra touches convey that this is more than just a bathroom it's a room that you live in.
