Blogger, content editor and avid DIYer, Misi Overturf shares her Italian-inspired design obsessions:
I am mesmerised by sleek lines, bold colour additions and I find the Italian designs haunting -especially their bathrooms and kitchens. The elegance, simplicity and integrity is simply amazing. I went to Italtile just to touch and feel the Zucchetti Rubinetterie range. This brand houses two powerful designs, Zucchetti and KOS, and under these designs are unbelievable awe-inspiring ranges.
Considering a bathroom with these designs will tally up to be more than our previous year’s home renovations. Alas, it is still gorgeous to look at. But what is even more attractive than the design is the quick service and replies I had all the way from Italia.
With regards to colour additions are these heated towel rails by Jeeves. They offer powder coated heated towel rails in the colour of your choice. This addition will apparently add an extra R1000 to the cost of your purchase.
Love the black! For further details, enquire at Italtile.
After looking around the Italtile showroom, the offering of a white standing mixer by Hansgrohe is also available. This tap set, the PuraVida range, comes in sleek white with a chrome top finish. They look really sleek.
And in the display bathroom at the showroom these tiles also caught my eye. Splendid alternative to the high demand typical rectangular metro tile. Loving the diamond shape.
These are the Ballester Porcar, Tabu tiles in colour Blanco – 560mm X 325mm and prices range from approximately R590/m2 from Italtile.
