First, the experts say that the choice of paneling for Sofia's bathroom walls seriously elevates her space. Interior designer Mehreen Baldonistates: 'Wall paneling immediately lifts the room and adds a new dimension to the space. Paneling not only adds texture and color but can also complement a vast variety of interior choices, for example; classic, modern, boho, art deco, vintage, and retro. You name it, and you have a panel design that works.'

NYC-based interior designer and founder of Arsight, Artem Kropovinky adds: 'Paneling adds a stately presence to a bathroom's atmosphere. Think of it as the well-tailored suit of interiors.' Furthermore, he says 'in the dance of light and shadow, paneling creates a rhythmic grace that brings a bathroom's dimensions to life.'

Secondly, interior designers say Sofia's choice of a chandelier for her bathroom lighting helps create its elegant atmosphere.
Mehreen says, 'Lighting is one of the key fixtures in bathrooms so why should it be underplayed? Lighting needs to be noticed and showed off in all its glory. Nothing makes more of a statement than a beautiful chandelier to add decadence, charm, and character to a bathroom. It creates a great focal point, and the reflection of light on water and mirrors helps create a calming oasis which is just what one needs when soaked in the bathtub after a long day at work.'
Artem continues, 'A chandelier in a bathroom enhances the space with an undeniable presence of sophistication. a chandelier gives that intimate, golden-hour quality to a bathroom, making every soak or mirror glance feel cinematic.'
This large crystal chandelier imitates the style of Waterford with 10 arms and 10 candelabra bulbs.
