Tim Van Geloven and Ilse Cornelissens, the husband/wife proprietors of Antwerp concept shop Graanmarkt 13, are longtime fans of designer Vincent Van Duysen 's work (his own house in particular). So when they converted the top floor of Graanmarkt 13  into a guest apartment, they turned to the designer for inspiration. Located in the middle of Antwerp, Belgium, Graanmarkt 13 also houses a design store, restaurant, and gallery on the floors below. We're partial to the flat's luxurious yet minimal bathroom, featuring a freestanding marble tub, two classic washstands, and a make-up vanity hidden behind closet doors. Here's how you can re-create the minimal and sophisticated look.
