We have reached the end of this Ideabook, but this final image shows the chic bathroom in all its glory. The half-moon window allows for unparalleled views of the river while soaking in the tub and because this home is situated so far from neighbours, there is no worry about prying eyes. The wood creates a warm and cosy interior that is stylish, while the grey marble walls and modern fixtures makes this bathroom soothing on the eyes.
