Bathrooms made of stone and ceramic wood
Thought up for relaxing in and getting away from it all, the bathrooms in this house have strengthened the intimacy of its areas with with the ceramic parquet (3). The faded brown in this piece gives the rest of the elements a vintage style, along with greater harmony.
