Steal This Look: A Glamorous Shower and Ensuite Bath in London

December 21, 2021

London-based jewelry designer Rosh Mahtani joined forces with boyfriend Fred Rigby of Fred Rigby Studio to remodel her Clerkenwell apartment. The apartment occupies the two lower floors of a 19th-century terrace, the lower floor with a shower room and an ensuite bathroom suited at the foot of the couple’s bed. Here, we’ve sourced a list of the key elements that make up the unique shower/bath spaces.
