How often do we find ourselves looking at houses that are just another reproduction of solutions already seen? Let’s focus on colour.
At Edilceram we think of homes as spaces where architecture and the culture of beauty can blend harmoniously to give life to infinite possibilities and combinations that make every room tell about you, who you are and, above all, your style.
In this sense, the choice of colour is fundamental.
THE SUGGESTION OF COLOUR
Colours direct and seduce the eye, convey emotions, enhance and characterise spaces, becoming distinctive elements of each and every one.
Above all, colours have never been more popular than at present.
For a long time, the trend in interior design has been towards the minimalist style with its typical neutral colours.
Today, however, we are increasingly seeing a reversal of this trend, with liveliness and freshness taking the place of austerity and rigour.
Colour also plays a leading role in the modern bathroom: the new washbasins introduce us to the most frequently used and most relaxing room of all, with bright nuances and pastel shades, making a clear departure from the classic total white style. The ceramic finishes and materials used for the washbasins play with colour palettes that range from the softest shades to glossy, bright enamels.
The new collections of the companies in our sector all focus on new shades that bring the bathroom back to the centre of the domestic space: whatever their shape, coloured sanitaryware and furniture are the stylistic key chosen to personalise the environment, thus breaking up its flatness. The embellishment of furnishing complements therefore passes from the living room to the most intimate area of the home: the bathroom, as well as being a service area, is a multi-comfort place which does not deprive the objects that compose it of their aesthetic value. In fact, it uses elements which, although functional, participate in defining the overall style. This is why they must be chosen with care and an overall vision.
COLOUR SPECIALIST BRANDS
The brands we love most, such as Ceramica Cielo, Flaminia, Artceram and Valdama, have opted for the colours of the sky, the earth and nature, freeing themselves from any standardisation. Rust and copper, for example, are very popular.
Inkiostro Bianco, Glamora and Wall&Deco, on the other hand, offer a wide choice of wallpapers to design one or more walls in the bathroom, so as to emphasise a particular area of the bathroom, such as the shower area, reproducing motifs that are visually reminiscent of the sea, or the wall behind the washbasin unit, painting it with flowers in a variety of colours. These papers can also be personalised with subjects or colours that are closer to our style. In short, true works of art that will help us to free our minds, even if only for a few minutes, from the greyness of everyday life!
Even some of our major wall tile brands, such as Tonalite, Abk, Casalgrande Padana and Mutina, have introduced coloured or patterned tiles onto the market, starting with pastel or watercolour colours and moving on to stronger, more vibrant shades.
The invitation, therefore, is to place the accent on specific areas of the bathroom, in order to create a detail so striking that little else will need to be added to the rest.
