The tile pattern, ceiling detailing, picture rail and tub are classic touches that bring balance to this otherwise clean-lined bathroom by Minosa Design.

An almost room-height ladder in walnut – matching the use of the same wood on the adjacent vanity countertop – makes for a feature towel rack in the shower area and draws attention to this bathroom’s exceptionally high stud. Together with a new skylight, frosted glass shutters admit natural light into the shower area without compromising privacy.
