Shades of Gray seems to be the "it" phrase right now among many woman of the world. Although they aren't talking about modern bathrooms, there just might be some similarities. There's something seductive and intimate about raw shades of gray in these bathroom designs. Some warm, some cool, some a bit wild, and some a little rocky. Combined, they create something fueled with an energy that's bound to intrigue you. The open-plan modern bathroom (above) uses porcelain wood floor tiles to make the space feel more like a living space, without the maintenance hassle. The frame-less glass shower in the center of the room is like a display case, unobtrusive to the beautiful materials around it. Lastly, the rhinos are a dynamic element, reminding you to  appreciate the expansive bounty that surrounds us. " Surround yourself in cool comfort as the rhino does with his mud bath rituals. Again, let the rich abundance and stability of the mother (earth) enfold you and reassure you." A sculptural masterpiece was created inside this 250 square meter apartment in Milan. Tiziana Serretta, a gallery owner who has dedicated her life to the arts, wanted to design something that was based on the principle of mobility and weightlessness. Such a dichotomy here, a cave-like design that looks so massive and solid, but has been made with such innovative materials that are nearly weightless. The smooth, solid white corian bathtub and sinks ground the space. These round, white elements appear to glow just like modern bath lighting  as the skylight shines down from above. Shades of gray (above) combine to create so much depth and interest in these custom made walls which are constructed from a mixture of chalk covered in resin, cement powder, chromatic pigments and non-hazardous plastics.   The strong contrast between rough concrete volumes and smooth white walls (above) add visual interest to this open-plan bathroom with a gorgeous sunken tub. Beautiful in it's simplicity and playful through its use of textures. Glass brings elegance into this sleek, organic design.  Combining chrome and glass accents with organic elements in a modern bathroom is a great way to establish the style of the space.
