A striking marble bathroom that oozes hotel style

For natural elegance and timelessness, designer Hollie Bowden chose bookmatched Arabescato marble, with an inlaid nickel trim. In a smaller room, like this is, she believes in keeping the number of materials to a minimum, as it is more dramatic, maximizes the look and also feels more cohesive and fluid. Nickel was chosen for the brassware for its understated glamour.
