Shake It Up

The austerity seen in this bathroom isn't run-of-the-mill minimalism, not by a long shot. Rather than be content with seamless surfaces and neutral hues, the designers incorporated a subtle texture—or maybe I should say 'dimension'?—with the beveled subway tiles on the walls. The not-so-subtle pattern on the floor adds a fun optic element. A detail I'm especially keen on is limiting the use of metallic finishes to the light fixtures; the ceramic robe hooks and tissue holder enhance the nonconformist mood of the room while making an effective materials statement.
