2024 is all about using warm neutrals; bathroom design is no exception. While traditional bathrooms are all white, shades like brown, pink, and beige are becoming more popular than ever on bathroom walls, in showers, and as part of the sink.
Katherine Heigl is an early adopter of the trend. The actress took to Instagram to share a sweet video joking around with her hair stylist and friend, Josh Kelly, but our eyes were most drawn to the brown bathroom marble.
Katherine's bathroom features large brown quartz tiles around the sink and the bathtub and brushed light brown walls arching up the ceiling. The tan tiles include chocolatey and pink accents, creating an interesting and visually captivating look.

Interior designers admire the effects of this bathroom color scheme. 'Beige and brown natural stone and tile can provide a warm and calming feel to a bathroom space,' says Ariella Duker, interior designer at Ariella Duker Interiors. 'It references nature with its earth tones and can ground spaces that can otherwise feel a bit utilitarian and cold.'
Ariella is a former fashion stylist and Sotheby 's-trained art historian-turned-interior-designer. Her boutique design firm is based in New York City, where she creates beautiful interiors across the city. She received an IFDA Rising Star Award was recognized as a New York Cottages & Gardens Rising Star, and was featured on Luxe Magazine's Gold List.
'A beige bathroom is a great way to bring the warm neutrals trend into your home,' says Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens. 'This color trend can help make a space feel more cozy, while using beige and brown on marble tiles creates a luxurious and classic effect.'
Jen is the Editor (Digital) of Homes & Gardens. Before starting this position, she had completed various interior design courses at KLC Design School, as well as working across Ideal Home, LivingEtc, 25 Beautiful Homes and Country Homes & Interiors as an interiors writer.
Experts further admire the versatility of Katherine's bathroom wall. Ariella states: 'Installing natural beige stones like Limestone or Travertine, for example, offers so much natural variation and interest inherent in their composition, developed over the years. These stones are so versatile, they can be used in both contemporary or traditional applications.'
Katherine's antique-style mirror perfectly compliments her tan bathroom walls, giving a stylish textural and shape contrast. This grand look-alike makes a bold statement.
This year is about being bold, even when decorating with neutrals. Katherine Heigl knows it. By following her example, you can create a stylish, cozy, and naturally inspired bathroom that will impress for even longer.
