Sometimes I’m torn between two loves.
A part of me loves a spare, minimalist look. The kind of space where the architecture and the hard surfaces do all of the talking.
What could be more beautiful than this white tiled bathroom. The uneven texture of the tiles provide the only pattern required. The monochromatic colour scheme is warmed by the wooden ceiling but the decoration is kept to a minimum with globe lights, chrome taps and fluffy white towels. It’s sparseness is its attractiveness and the high window ensures privacy. I love it.
But then my head is turned.
Another white tiled bathroom. Another monochromatic colour scheme, but there the similarity ends. The owner of this bathroom loves comfort and decoration. The floor tiles are highly patterned, there’s a mirrored cupboard that surely holds all manner of lotions and potions. There are fancy bottles, and flowers, and lampshades, and so many photographs one ended up on the floor! This is a bathroom to linger in. To indulge in a long soak in the bath, not take a shower.
Which do you prefer?
