Special Bathroom: Pure Nordic

Two bathroom ideas in simple style where the bond with nature is all-important.

Simplicity, practicality and convenience are central to Nordic design, which first made an impact in the 1950s and has had such a strong influence on European architecture and interior design.

Materials, surfaces and objects all combine to create rooms that seem to be built around people’s needs, with a direct, spontaneous interaction. Thanks to their often pared-down aesthetic and preference for natural colours and untreated materials, interiors often have a timeless image, untouched by fashions. However, their style is not frosty or minimalist but rather warm and welcoming, with a natural sense of harmony.

The main goal of Nordic interiors is to take advantage of the precious resource that is natural light. Thus, even artificial lighting is used to emphasise and compensate for daylight.

In bathrooms, nowadays this trend is reflected in plain, well-lit interiors inspired by nature: the bathroom has simple, stylised lines that prioritise pure functionality.

In the two featured stylings, both bathrooms have the large windows central to Nordic design, which allow plenty of natural daylight to enter. The furnishings, with simple shapes, consisting of just a few iconic pieces, well distributed through the room and combined with wall coverings in delicate colours. On the one hand, tiles from the Magnifica Limestone Sand collection, combined with the Vero wood look in a pale colour (Natural), installed in a herringbone pattern. On the other, the matt, textured finishes typical of the Mystone Moon porcelain stoneware, in grey and white, contrast with the shine of the Lume White collection wall coverings. The overall effect is one of simplicity and uniformity, with large spaces and tastefully balanced forms.
