Glamorous gray. Gray continues to be a top color of choice for new and renovated homes and opting for this color in a bathroom gives it a contemporary edge. In this updated Melbourne Australia period home a neutral palette modernizes while still staying true to its classic roots. There's something refreshingly clean about gray for a bathroom and while both black and white on floors and walls can show dirt a gray bathroom is easy to keep clean. Concrete (and concrete-look tiles) is the material of choice in ultramodern homes and extensions and bathrooms are the latest areas of the house to get the concrete treatment. The wood concrete and black palette of this bathroom continues throughout this Adelaide home. If midgray isn't your thing go for darker charcoals for a tinge of glamour and sophistication. The industrial-style light (with a yellow rather than white globe) and wood countertop add welcome warmth and moodiness to this space. You can never have too much marble in a bathroom especially when the expanse of gray is offset by metallic fixtures and a standout vanity. Marble tiles manage to be classic and contemporary at the same time a great choice for the cutting-edge addition to this home.

The rebel. We're all forced to toe the line to some degree — there are laws to follow jobs to show up for and cultural norms to abide by after all. But if a part of you wants to walk your own path a symbol in your bathroom can serve as a reminder to stand up for what you believe in and that you can dance to your own tune … at least to a degree.

White Mid Century NightstandWhite Mid Century Nightstand

A styled nightstand makes your bedroom look complete. Keep only essential items here such as a lamp clock and book and decorative details like a dish to hold your jewelry or a memento. Keep this area clean and dust-free as you don't want to wake up to a mess or breathe in allergens while you sleep. The interior style of your bedroom should guide you in your choice of bedside items. A coastal-inspired bedroom could have lush green tropical leaves in a glass bottle on top of a stack of books and a maritime-inspired clock for example. Boho bedrooms might feature a small arrangement of brightly colored flowers and a string of beads. Just don't be overly obvious in your approach to themes.

Let's focus on pendant placement and style at the bedside an important and often-overlooked space. Consider lighting up your bedside with a pendant-style fixture instead of a table lamp. It's a bit edgy yet it's practical because of all the floor or table space it frees up.

Wooden bathtubs usually made from waterproofed marine wood add unexpected warmth to tile and stone bathrooms. This rectangular tub works well with an Asian-influenced design but I love that it can feel classic too.

Cozy rustic. Raw unfinished wood is key to this look but you don't need to splurge on a big piece to make it work. Use a plain wood slice (find it in a crafts store) as a tray to hold bedside necessities repurpose a wood stump as a table or bring in a few rustic wooden boxes as bedroom storage. Create warmth with cozy patchwork quilts wool blankets and faux fur pillows — and if you have a pair of cowboy boots be sure to leave them out on display.

Squeeze in a micro shelf. Think there isn't even room for a shelf? Think again. When a bed has to be squeezed into an alcove it can seem as if there isn't any room for bedside storage but this teeny-weeny shelf attached to the side of a closet is a clever solution. The curved edge is a safer option if space is tight and the shelf is close to the bed out of necessity. Admittedly displaying a vase of flowers here may not be terribly practical if this room is used every day but this dinky shelf would be the perfect size for a phone or alarm clock.
