Next item on the list of neglected rooms are bathrooms. I.e. said from a Swedish point of view. Tile and re-tile…! We do believe bathrooms must be sterile. Reason for this is unclear, but it certainly has its historical explanation. Yes, we are a timid bunch! Pic below, my dear readers, I appoint the typical Swedish bathroom.
A random pick from the site that aggregates current real estate listings (Booli). White, fresh and clean (sterile):
Okay, surely there are variations. The use of colour, the spa feeling, yet head-to-toe tiled bathrooms are still the finest, most exclusive. The main problem is presumably not the all-over tile, key issue is the ample lack of decor. The squariness.

Is not it very cozy to lie in a bathtub in a sensible place…. with colours, living materials, a homey feeling? A lively, friendly environment? Yeeeah, I certainly think so! And the trend is pointing in that direction.
…it says: Let inspiration flow! Bathroom is a room too!!
