Steal This Look: Soho Grand Bathroom in New York

Designed by William Sofield in 1996, the interiors of the Soho Grand Hotel in New York have stood the test of time. We especially like Sofield's all-white baths, which have a jazzy urban edge thanks to the kinetic wallpaper by legendary New Yorker magazine cartoonist Saul Steinberg. Recreate the look with the following elements.
