When trans­form­ing his own 1920s home in Barcelona, in­te­rior de­signer Guillermo San­tomà used vi­brant shades of pink for ev­ery sur­face, from the walls, floor and ceil­ing to the shelv­ing. The walls are painted to match the tra­di­tional square tiles, while the ceil­ing, brightly painted like the sky, acts as a sky­light to add a touch of sur­real fun.

THIS PAGE For mil­len­nia, ce­ramic tiles have served as dec­o­ra­tive and func­tional cladding for both in­te­rior and ex­te­rior spa­ces. Durable and easy to clean, they of­fer count­less pos­si­bil­i­ties in the bath­room, cre­at­ing colour, pro­tect­ing sur­faces from mois­ture, adding tex­ture and cov­er­ing vast ar­eas.

OP­PO­SITE For an op­u­lent, spa-in­spired am­bi­ence when us­ing stone, look to the smooth, pol­ished sur­faces of mar­ble, gran­ite and traver­tine, with their unique stri­a­tions and mot­tling.
