The Provencal style has always and at all times caught our attention. For those of you who do not know anything about this inclination, we would roughly define it as a romantic rustic decoration. Although you have considerably more nuances that we are going to define now, today we focus on the decoration of a very special space in the home, the bathroom. Since we think that it is the room that can teach much more adversity and concerns at the time of conferring this ornamental style. For this reason we share 10 photographs of provencal baths that will serve as a starting point. We mention each and every ornamental tip as the best ideas. Welcome to Provencal-style bathrooms!
This particular ornamental style originates from Provence, a rural area in southeastern France bathed by the Mediterranean Sea. From there it spreads across the entire planet, conquering homes. And it happens that if something has the Provencal decoration that makes it different from the rustic style, and for this reason highly valued, it is its lighting. The Provencal interiors, and therefore the provencal baths, stand out for their light. A clarity that fills the spaces and that the white color contributes to its palette: off-white, off-white, pearl white, ivory white… the undisputed main character of this style. Other colors also used, although to a lesser extent, are yellowish and copper tones, gray or pink, but in their much more visible or pastel options.
With regard to furniture, wood and wrought iron are the representative materials of this inclination. The furniture of the provencal baths they are primarily made of wood. For the most part they show a worn or chipped finish, with a marked use of the pickling technique. The pieces of iron or wrought iron tend to have a lot of presence in this style, although not so much in the bathrooms, and they tend to stand out for their rusty appearance.
In each and every one of the cases, whether it be wood or wrought iron, the furniture is frequently painted white, or a light color. A great idea to add much more light to the room if it is poorly lit.

In Provencal decoration the deterioration of its elements, the decadent air of the group and the sense of the passage of time take on particular importance. Many pieces seem to have lived through a war. And far from repairing themselves, they pay homage to their ruin.
