Belgian minimalism

Although freestanding bathtubs are decorative in the bathroom, I would not have considered them to be a way to enhance a space’s visual appeal. This color collaboration between House of Rohl’s Victoria + Albert Collection and Wallpaper* challenges the idea that a bathtub must be white or the stone color.

This collection draws inspiration from architecture styles from the 20th century around the globe and features 30 colors that you can apply to Victoria + Albert volcanic limestone freestanding tubs or vessel sinks. Soft and soothing colors like Chalk Blue or Mauve Grey are derived from the minimalist Belgian aesthetic. This collaboration transforms the bold, avante-garde modernist movement of midcentury Brazil into rich colors like Amaranth Blossom or Thistle Green. The chromatic style American postmodernism is also represented in the collaboration with soft gold (Dynamic), Baltic Blue and Alpine Dusk Grey.

Victoria + Albert offers matte and glossy finishes. They use catalyzed painting for a longer cure time and can be hand-finished between applications.

The bathroom renovation is a great investment that transforms a space from a utilitarian to a piece of art. This color range is available in vessel sinks starting at $1247, and bathtubs starting at $5474. These pieces can be viewed and purchased through House of Rohl-affiliated showrooms.
