Rustic decor is a popular trend partially because it allows for eclectic pieces that are more affordable but also because it blends well with other types of decor such as bohemian modern, shabby chic, cottage style, green design and cabin style. This rustic style bathroom was designed by Gunni, with all white modern sanitary ware, the clean, white palette, the cool porcelain and the contemporary minimalist look of the sink, tub, toilet and bidet are an unlikely but ideal complement to this earthy bathroom with a Zen atmosphere that promotes good taste. photo found on trendir.
