God damn it, I love Pinterest, don't you? It's a never-ending source of inspiration, whether you're looking for interiors, recipes, toys, holiday destinations, hair styles, craft activities, wedding planning... anything really. It's an absolute treasure trove.
So welcome to this new series of blog posts, where we pick out our favourite trends from Pinterest with a few choice images. First up... Bathrooms!

Now OBVIOUSLY monochrome bathrooms are where it's at, for us that really goes without saying. Clearly a blog from a website called White Black Grey isn't going to start extolling the virtues of a colourful bathroom (though my Nan has an emerald green suite that is just... mind-blowing.)
So, assuming your basics are going to be neutral, what can you do to pep the room up a bit? Here goes...

This isn't just a bathroom trend, we've been seeing terrazzo all over the shop lately, but it is incredibly strong in the bathroom. Whether you use it for the floor, wall tiles, accessories, or check out the terrazzo basin below (love it!), it's a sure fire way to make your bathroom feel über modern.

2. Super Minimalism

Ok, this might have a proper name amongst those in the know, but you see what we're driving at here. You need to be mega-strict with your decluttering and daily tidying to make this look work, but WOW.

We love the 'heavy' look of the black detailing here, so impactful. This leads me neatly onto the next trend...
3. Strong Black Detailing
We're especially digging the Crittall-style shower doors that seem to be popping up a lot lately. The very definition of Mid-Century Modern isn't it?

4. Industrial Textures
Think concrete, granite, cement etc.

This is a really easy one to bring into your bathroom on a low budget by accessorising (check out our little concrete collection here!).
If you're dreaming a little bigger (darling), how striking are these polished cement walls??

5. Busy Tiles
This one is a bit hit and miss in my humble opinion. Whether you go for square, herringbone, honeycomb or mini metro... when done right, it's stunning, but in some cases it can look a bit overwhelming. What do you think?
