The Holidays make me think about decorations, and decorations make me think about patterns. I recently came across photographs of two beautiful bathrooms at the Mountain House in Nova Lima, Brazil. I usually do not fancy “decorations”, I prefer solid surfaces and natural stone veins, the only patterns being ones created by grout lines. But in case of the Nova Lima bathrooms designed by David Guerra Architecture along with the entire house, I must make an exception to my own rule. The tile patterns are intriguing, the color palette is simple, the tiles are only used on one feature wall. Everything else in the bathrooms has a neutral, natural palette and perfectly compliments the tile design.
If you want to “dress up” your bathroom for longer than just the Holidays, consider this tile series called Natural Trend by Ceramica Sant’ Agostino:
Another option is this tile pattern from the Glow series by Atlas Concorde:
Both series have monochrome tiles in matching colors. Remember, the trick is not to overdo it. Have fun!
