Steal This Look: A Sunshine Bath in a London Townhouse

March 19, 2024

The standout bathrooms in a London townhouse designed by firm Bradley Van Der Straeten are drenched in unexpected color, from the paint to the tiles. On the first floor, the bathroom is cloaked in yellow—and faces the south side of the house “to make the most of the daylight and brightness,” the firm explains. Here, we list the key features to recreate the look.
