Soft Color

Mosaic tile creates a contrasting grid pattern for a striking floor in this elegant bathroom. Marble tiles are used on the walls for a sophisticated, monochromatic look, while white sinks keep the space light and airy. Metallics, from the brass light fixtures and mirrors to the gold faucets and plumbing, bring an updated feel to the space.
