Admired recently on a Swedish blog: a color-blocked black-and-white bath with a Gothic edge. Traditional fittings and pharmacy-inspired cabinets mix effortlessly with modern lighting, including a black spidery chandelier. Here's how to replicate the look: Above: A bathroom that crosses the border between old and new, upright and playful (with a hint of dark humor). Photograph via Hannas Room .
