Shop The Room: Brass Bath

by Melissa Goldstein
Today's get-the-look focuses on a typically behind-the-scenes room that is more than worthy of a close-up. This stately lavatory, featured in the February issue of online lifestyle magazine Matchbook, leverages a high-contrast colour scheme with unexpected fixture finishes for a classic, glamour-tinged aesthetic. If, like us, you're looking to stage your next bubble bath or close shave in a setting as aspirational as this one, follow our three tips for translation. EMBRACE OPPOSITES: In this case, contrast is your best friend. Black is used to highlight effect--on moldings and shelves as a frame for a perfect window of ivory--and harmonizes with classical touches of cool grey marble. The finish here is glossy, and rightfully so: both for durability (when things get steamy) and for a slightly showy polished sheen. SHINE ON: Just as jewellery is the finishing touch to an exquisite outfit, so too are faucet and tub fixtures to a refined bathroom. Here, unlacquered brass fixtures warm up the room and brings a richness to the scene, while exposed plumbing works as a flashy take on industrial. EXPOSE YOURSELF: If you stock your medicine cabinet with beautiful bottles and toiletries, why hide them? Exposed glass shelves work as a showcase for a well curated collection--and the addition of a rough quartz crystal never hurt anyone. Keep a consistent colour theme with products on display to pack a maximum visual punch (you can stash your Listerine under the sink).
