Indulge with classic and contemporary styles this spring
A bathroom should be a thing of beauty. It is a place where we go to in the morning when we are preparing for the day ahead, and it is the place we return to as we prepare to relax at the end of the day. So shouldn’t it be a room of indulgence more than any other? We think so. But what does indulgence mean to you? For some of us, it is classic styling with curves and flourishes, but others are drawn to a more modern and simple interior style. Think you can’t have the best of both? Think again. By combining your tiles cleverly you can have a classic and contemporary space that is pure indulgence.
Choose a classic marble flooring such as our Marbles Estatuario floor tiles. These glossy porcelain floor tiles have a realistic marble effect complete with rich blue-grey veining that just scream style when you walk into the room. But, combine these with the simple white modern metro wall tiles such as our Michelino White or our Marylebone White half way up the wall and the effect is just stunning. The marble effect floor tiles bring the drama and interest to the room, while the metro tiles, with their effortless chic, complement the veining of the marble floor tiles and ensure the key features of the room really make a statement.
Once you have these staple elements in the room, it’s easy to add high society elegance and the practical styling of contemporary design. Start by using classic fittings – such as double freestanding basins with traditionally styled features, a centrally-placed roll top bath, a large gilt mirror on the wall. And, for the ultimate in glamour go for a chandelier or even elegant sconces on the walls. Add to this some dark moody wall colour – perhaps a grey or a deep blue to bring out the veining on the floor and to add a contemporary feel – and you will have both a glamorous and relaxing space all in one. All you need are some candles around the bathtub and some warm fluffy towels and you are good to go.
