2. All That Glitters
A bathroom doesn't have to feel cold and sterile. In fact, it's possible to create a space that has a hint of glamour. Kohler's Caravan Collection Persia on Conical Bell Vessels Lavatory
may have a simple build, but the delicate pink and gold Persian design on the inside gives your powder room a major dose of pretty.
Create an element of mystery while giving your loo a pop of color. This tempered glass sink by Red Fire Galaxy Design boasts a unique faucet that when turned off gives this piece its alien-like quality. Flip the center switch and get rewarded with a healthy wall of water, rather than the usual slim stream.
