that are practical, yet beautiful,” a spokesperson says. “Pairing earth tones with metallic accents is also growing in popularity. Bold accents can enliven a space without making the bathroom look too busy. We are also seeing bathrooms with plenty of natural light, which highlights a fresh, nature-inspired decor.” To complement these trends Kraus offers simple, polished faucet designs in a range of finishes. Faucets also come in a variety of heights and installation types, so they can coordinate with most sink styles and sizes, while maintaining a universal design sensibility. Highlights of the Kraus collection include the Ventus, which is a sleek counterpoint to a soft neutral palette; polished chrome finishes that create an edgy, modern contrast, yet coordinate well with textured, natural tones; and faucets in highly polished metallic finishes. These also contrast well with earth tones. For further information on Kraus, phone 1800 775 0703. Website: save | share Above left: Modern luxury is defined by simple, sculptural forms.
