Steal This Look: A Blingy Bathroom, Vipp Included

June 07, 2016 4:00 AM

BY Alexa Hotz

In the Copenhagen townhouse of Sofie and Frank Christensen Egelund, the upstairs bath is mostly modern and industrial with a glint of silver in the mosaic tiles around the tub. The couple, both executives at design company Vipp, outfitted the bath with the brand’s iconic waste bin and other bath accessories. Here’s a closer look at the elements to replicate the look at home.
