Steal This Look: A Swedish Bathroom with Retro Pink Tiles

It’s been a few years since we first wrote about Wanås (pronounced va-noos) Hotel, an 18th-century Swedish farmhouse-turned-boutique hotel by architect Kristina Wachtmeister, but we’re still obsessing over this perfect pink bathroom she designed. It features vintage dusty-rose tiles, bespoke furniture by Christian Halleröd, and fixtures from Swedish brand Ifö.

Below, we show you how to replicate the look (without having to commission custom furniture).

Steal This Look

Massproductions A01 Wall Hook from Arket Above: Stockholm-based Massproductions makes the porcelain A01 Wall Hooks, which come in white, off-white, and gray; $51 at A+R. (See 10 Easy Pieces: Modern Robe Hooks.)
Above: Waterworks’ Collette Freestanding Oval Bathtub is a near perfect match; $12,558.
American Universal Corp. Brittany Pink Tiles Above: American Universal Corp. says it’s the largest importer and distributor of fine Japanese porcelain tile in the United States. These Brittany 4×4 tiles, in the BR-94 shade, on their site have a similar retro look.
Folding Towel Holder by Matela Above: For a similar look, try a wooden clothes drying rack (we’re partial to deVol’s Clothes Horse) if you have the space. For a more compact bathroom, we like this Folding Towel Holder by Czech furniture company Matela; kč 2,200.
Skagerak Georg Side Table Above: Skagerak’s Georg Side Table is $249 at Danish Design Store.
Mia Modern Ceramic Planter by One Many Above: The Mia Modern Ceramic Planter by One and Many is $85.
