How about splashing around in a semi-precious stone bathtub trimmed with gold that will set you back by a whopping Rs 1 crore? Carved out of amethyst, this opalescent soak pit from Italian bathroom major Baldi is the latest in washroom luxury.If you are game for more, browse through French brand THG’s Prestige collection of faucets that are accented with a rich assortment of coloured stones like quartz rose, rock crystal, red jasper, black onyx, malachite, tiger eye and lapis lazuli.The Rug Collection from the same label has elaborate patterns created from glass tilesSays Jean Noel Edouard, head, product design, Nagina Waters, a Delhi-based luxury bathroom store that showcases high-end brands like THG, Capponi and Baldi, “India is a land that’s traditionally associated with ornamentation. So, going for bathroom fixtures and fittings that lack detailing or colour result in a bland, antiseptic look.” He adds that the bathroom decor needs to be perfectly calibrated to one’s needs and sensibilities rather than being a blind imitation of the reigning Western trend. It is no secret that adornments for washrooms are now being held in high regard. A host of materials ranging from Swarovski crystals and artistic mosaics to precious metal and semi-precious stones are now part of the luxury washroom repertoire.A mother-of-pearl-inlaid vanity from CapponiCashing on this new-found love for extravagant adornments is Italian mosaic brand Sicis, that has retail outlets in Delhi and Mumbai. The label has launched butterfly-shaped mosaic art for bathrooms that impress with their eye-popping colours and shimmer. Nodding to an effervescent spirit, the line, titled Butterfly Mosaic Collection, is made of glass tesserae or pressed glass tile. Depending on the quality of design and installation, this range costs between Rs 3,800 and Rs 75,850. “Sicis gives the opportunity to experience the bathroom as a place of aesthetic and material well being,” says Andrea Azzarello, the brand’s spokesperson.Amethyst bathtub from BaldiThe new age bathroom materials take a cue from opulent decor schemes predominant in the rest of the house. Precious metals like gold and silver, now used in faucets and showerheads, reference accents in the living and bedrooms. Agrees Edouard of Nagina Waters: “Traditional notions of seclusion and privacy are slowly becoming obsolete. Guests are often given tours of designer bathrooms in this day and age.” To satiate a growing appetite for ornate finishes and textures, Nagina Waters has on offer gold, silver and even platinum leaf bathroom tiles from Italian brand Godiva Stone.Soap dispenser, toothbrush holder and soap dish from Baldi. Both Baldi and Capponi are retailed in India by Nagina Waters.Luxurious to touch and pleasing to the eye, Godiva Stone tiles are made of high-quality marble wrapped with a leaf of precious material. This leaf is applied on the tile by a manual process. For the truly inspired, customisation is taken to the next level with etchings on marble with decorative motifs, writings, logos and designs, as dictated by the patron.Indeed, the desire for one-of-a-kind washroom decor has paved the way for grander layouts and fancier materials. Staying true to the trend, interior designers too are pulling out all stops to offer an upscale product to their clients.A washroom created by La Sorogeeka has textured walls and a detailed chandelierA powder room created by Noida-based interior design outfit La Sorogeeka has its high ceiling embellished with white crystal, walls sporting crococeramic tiles with leather finish and a stone floor. Artists of the firm’s workshop have even created an engraved look for some of the walls. The final flourish is added by way of an exaggerated chandelier in black and white. “There’s a new approach to design now. And the powder room is a space showcased to all guests. It should be attention grabbing,” says Anjali Goel, CEO, La Sorogeeka.Gold-plated cotton ball holder from Bathline SensationsAccording to Varun Gupta, joint managing director, Bathline Sensations, a Delhi-based bathroom accessories label that dabbles in Swarovski crystals and metals like gold and silver, the aim is to raise the metal to the category of art. The Starlight Square series from its Acquaviva AG line creates a lavish look through its gold plated and Swarovski embedded gel dispensers, brush holders and cotton ball jars. To ensure a perfect finish, brass is coated with electrolyte, chrome and subsequently 24 carat gold or silver. Embellishments, clearly, have come of age in this country. With their glorious sheen and texture, state-of-the-art bathroom fixtures are now a must-have in every fashionable address.advertisementadvertisement

Freshman forward Nichelle Prince (7) advances the ball during a game against Purdue Sept. 29 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 1-0.Credit: Michele Theodore / Copy ChiefComing off a season-high six goals in a senior day victory against Northwestern, the Ohio State women’s soccer team heads back on the road for two Big Ten games this weekend. The Buckeyes are scheduled to play at No. 21 Nebraska Friday afternoon and Iowa Sunday.“(This) week’s games we just have to win,” freshman forward Nichelle Prince said. “We have to go in hard, we have to go in even harder than (last) week.”With just three games left in the regular season, OSU currently sits at 3-3-2 in Big Ten play, good for sixth best in the conference. The Buckeyes have scored 11 goals in their past three games, compared to just 18 goals in their first 13 games. Coach Lori Walker is hoping the offense continues its run but is also making sure the defense is getting attention, too.“Consistency is our challenge,” Walker said. “My hope is we didn’t expend all the goals left in the box (on Sunday). We’re going to continue to work on our defending and not giving away transition goals, kind of like we saw today.”Sitting atop the Big Ten standings is OSU’s Friday opponent, Nebraska, who is 7-1 in conference play. Two Nebraska forwards, senior Jordan Jackson and freshman Jaycie Johnson, each have seven goals on the year to lead the Huskers in scoring.“These are two tough games and two very important games,” Walker said. “Nebraska is playing extremely well, and it’s always hard to play Iowa at Iowa, so everyone counts.”Hawkeye sophomore goalkeeper Hannah Clark has shut out seven opponents, tied for the most in the Big Ten this season.OSU freshman midfielder Alexis Degler said for the Buckeyes to be successful, they need to keep their composure and concentrate on the task at hand.“We really need to keep our intensity level and just celebrate the game,” Degler said. “We just really need to bring that the rest of the time, and our soccer will come with it.”Friday’s match at Nebraska is scheduled to start at 4 p.m., and Sunday’s match at Iowa is set to kick off Sunday at 2 p.m.
