In addition to choosing natural colors, find a balance between light and dark colors. "People often misinterpret a Zen bathroom as a dark space," says architect Michael Morris of Morris Sato Studio in New York City, "but the light is just as important." For example, if you paint the walls taupe, enhance them with an iron vase of orange zinnias or a black granite sink.
Designer Jodi Fitzpatrick of Renata Resources in Fresno, Calif., recommends keeping the background neutral and monochromatic. She accomplishes this by painting the walls the same color as the tile. She also matches the toilet and towels to the wall color. She suggests choosing one or two beautiful objects to spotlight against the neutral background, such as a smooth stone sculpture or a richly colored landscape.
