Bohemian interiors have been on trend for years and home-owners are looking to create spaces that tell their story and reflect their own personal styles.
Ideal Standard, a leading provider of innovative bathroom solutions, is capitalising on its 100 years of experience to offer products that balance high-end design with innovation and functionality, empowering customers with greater design options and exceptional technologies that help them express their own unique styles.
From elegant ceramics and innovative brassware to a huge range of compatible furniture options, the company offers customers complete flexibility when it comes to creating inspirational basin spaces.
The Bohemian (Boho) style blends textures and styles for a truly personal pampering space. Inspired by the carefree lifestyles of designers in the 1970s, this creative trend is all about combining natural textures and neutral shades with gold accents and verdant plant life, says a spokesman for Ideal Standard.
“With a stunning selection of basins, vanities and fittings, we’ve got everything you need to create a unique space that tells your story. With clean lines that can still be soft and welcoming, the contrast between natural and man-made creates harmony and calmness,” he adds.
The Boho look brings together natural textures and material such as wood and ceramics, alongside plants and eye-catching gold detailing for an accessible yet luxurious finish. Filling the space with plants and greenery brings a washroom alive and cleanses the environment. Plants can be placed alongside oversized mirrors to reflect the foliage and bathe the room in natural light, says the spokesman.
“Our Connect Air vanity units are the perfect place to rest your basin. Customers can choose from a variety of concise shapes and finishing options to complement their eco-inspired living space.
“The furniture finishes also come in an array of colour combinations chosen by the company’s award-winning designer, Robin Levien, to fit diverse areas and styles.
“From dark chocolate for a strong design statement to fully white for a minimalist approach; the palettes and natural wood options will add a Scandinavian style to your bathroom and bring the lightness of the overall concept,” the spokesman adds.
One key word that describes Boho is ‘balanced’, according to him. A blend of organic textures and material which contrast yet complement each other perfectly – from calm, neutral shades to vibrant green foliage – all work in harmony to create a stylish and welcoming atmosphere.
Not just inviting to look at, but also interesting to touch and feel, the Boho trend provides a full sensory experience.
“If you’re looking for the perfect finish or shade to complement your space, our Connect Air ceramic collection offers you refreshing versatility, enabling you to build your own individual washbasin look and feel that complements Connect Air furniture range – a perfect solution for those who appreciate beauty, comfort and personal style,” he says.
Each product in the range is designed and ready for personal touches. The classy yet stylish Connect Air vanity unit lets customers build the ideal space for their plants and toiletries, or they can make the fine-edged, delicate yet tough Ipalyss vessels the centrepiece.
The spokesman says Ipalyss vessels can resist heavy usage over a long period of time. They are designed using Ideal Standard’s new super-thin ceramic material and the Diamatec Technology, which is known for its hardness and strength that prevents cracking and adds structural strength.
Ipalyss vessels are tough enough to withstand demanding environments, and beautiful enough to strike the right tone in luxury settings including hotels, apartments and restaurants.
“In conclusion, if you are planning to have a bathroom that blends neutral style with personal touches, the Boho trend is for you. Natural and inviting, it is a surprisingly simple way to bring more of ‘you’ to any living space.
“Choose from a selection of key Ideal Standard products for a look that is more couture than cluttered, offering a sense of laid-back luxury at every step,” he says.
