Design trends has always favored the classics, remember the old bathrooms with light creamy coloured square tiles fitted with protruding pipes and taps everywhere? Designs are moving along with the minimalist trends of today’s homes. Think large mirrors with ambient lighting complemented with ample spaces. Victoria + Albert’s Napoli freestanding bath stands out as the main subject of the bathroom, beckoning to whom looking to relax. Personally, we love the bold and broad hexagonal tiles that contrast the pieces from each other.
