Is orange also the new brass for colored bathroom faucets?
One gripe about minimalist décor is that it lacks warmth. That may be especially true when the walls and fixtures are concrete, black, white, gray or beige. And in this positively austere modernist bath, a few sunny shots of orange by way of the shower and sink fixtures look great. Chrome, or even nickel, faucets would fade into the walls of this bath which fits the “chic-drab” description. That’s my home decor equivalent of the French term “jolie-laide,” which translates roughly as so ugly it’s pretty.
We’ve seen these cheerful colored Vola faucets in other baths such as designer MarryAnn Smiley’s green and orange Juicy Color Bath. Orange was a staple of mid-20th century design, along with green, turquoise and gold. Vola fixtures come in many hues and are a designer favorite. This Danish company has been in business since 1873, and commissioned architect Arne Jacobsen to design this line of faucets in the 1960s. Light and dark blue, bright and Carmine red, shocking pink, leaf green, coffee brown and yellow and other color possibilities. If I was doing a concrete bath, I’d likely go for the leaf green.
