If you’re looking for a striking display of marble in your bathroom, the example above will serve you well. It’s part of the Project 910 by Kiko Salomão an astounding apartment in São Paulo, Brazil. Bold-colored details like a simple and sophisticated bunch of bright flowers break the monotony of a marble-encrusted bathroom design.
A mix of concrete and marble targets a more dramatic and industrial feel. When lit through a skylight, the bathroom opens up to reveal details otherwise hidden behind artificial lighting during the day. Seen in Villa Extramuros in Alto-Alentejo, Portugal, this concrete and marble bathroom stands as proof that two cold materials can create an inviting setting.
A marble bathroom separated from the bedroom by only a glass wall is not for everyone. Many people feel that privacy lacks in these spaces, but they have the power to undress you of preconceptions. This beautifully lit marble bathroom in this Lake House designed by architect Igor Sirotov serves as inspiration for those who prefer an open contemporary design.
An all-white bathroom does feel brighter and lighter, but it can look a little cold or lack the depth your eye registers as space. Adding black to your bathroom, in the form of black walls or a black-and-white tile design or a black ceiling adds the “POW!” your small bathroom is begging for.
