If I had to design my dream bathroom, it would most likely be a minimalist, Scandi-inspired space with plenty of plants and natural materials, a welcoming bath and some indulgent scented candles. I love little luxuries, and nothing relaxes me more than a long, tranquil bath at the end of a busy day. A modern-day bathroom ought to be functional and practical but, above all, it should be a sanctuary, a place in which you can relax a nd rejuvenate in the comfort of your own home. It should reflect the needs and personalities of the home’s occupants while remaining aesthetically pleasing. All of this was kept in mind as we crafted this edition of Bathroom Yearbook. Our Modern Living feature explores must-have products, appliances and accessories, while Nature Calls details how…

Many people lean towards safe and traditional styles when it comes to bathroom decor. Minimalist bathrooms have been a hot trend in the last few years and function often takes precedence over form. While used every day for its intended purposes, the bathroom is also an escape or retreat where people can pamper themselves, relax and unwind.

While injecting a hint of personality and individuality into the room keeps it from being stark and lifeless, there is no need to go over the top with colours and patterns to create a striking and unique design. Statement features are the perfect solution to achieve this without the aesthetic becoming overbearing. From claw-foot bathtubs…

For a nature-inspired bathroom, focus on various aspects and try to evoke the sights, smells and touch of our natural environment. Raw materials create a tactile response, and the overall visual of a room can also have a significant effect on the senses. The goal for a nature-themed bathroom should be to create a calm and balanced environment that evokes an innately cleansing atmosphere. Here, we explore the many ways you can incorporate nature’s essence to create your own eco-sanctuary. FLOORS AND…
