ith anthracite, gray and cream perfectly mixed together with antique, ethnic patterns and bold urban brushstrokes, the bathroom reinterprets optical illusions in this space which plays with glossy and matte surfaces, full and empty volumes and sleek yet bold geometries. There is the echo of distant atmospheres here and there, and traditions rooted in craftsmanship get mixed together with brusque yet elegant functionality. Centrally, the delicate and enveloping bathtub protected by the decorative alcove and magically illuminated wall provide warm, sophisticated and natural intimacy. Nearby, accessories like the washbasin, radiator, mirror and shelves are designed with a decisive touch in a clear contrast with the fixtures; meanwhile, the nook in the column creates the space for shower gels, creams and towels. It highlights the space’s contemporary and pragmatic soul which makes bold minimalism the newest form of elegance.

Functionality becomes another decorative element in this model which decorates the wall and frames the towels while keeping them warm.

The column nook.

In place of the usual shelf, it provides a minimal look that unites practicality to refinement.
