Splash about in style

Fashion trends are expanding to include bathrooms too



The essence is more on subtlety at Style Box Boutique.

WELL, OUR city's seen it all when it comes to fashion. We've several boutiques catering to clothes, hair, perfumes, shoes, and now it's the turn of the bathroom Yessir. What with the fashion trends expanding so much that people are even conscious about the most private of rooms. That's right, they don't mind opening up their wallets to give their functional bathrooms a facelift.

Here we have a store, aptly called, Style Box Boutique on J.C. Road that provides you "the best" when it comes to hind ware. This store, nay boutique, was recently launched with a mission to "offer a premium range of imported European bath ware".

Karthik Srinivasmurthy, the man behind the boutique says: "Our store offers a contemporary shopping experience, one where the buyers for the five-star hotels, corporate houses, and upmarket apartment can pick and choose from the varied choices." He also adds that the store is ideal for upmarket clientele, probably those who've travelled abroad and are aware of the European style. In fact, if you are looking for something really loud and grand, like say, a sink with gold-plated rims or silver-topped taps, then this place is surely a wrong choice. For here, the essence is more on subtlety. "Even the colours are more inclined towards the natural look," adds Karthik. So you will find basins, bathtubs or surfaces (the walls and the floors) in greys, beiges, or even greens.

This 4,000 sq.ft. boutique offers everything from shower panels to jacuzzi baths to steam baths (if you can afford it why not create your own spa at home?).

That's not all, this boutique offers you accessories created by European designers like Jacob Belafon and Philipe Starck to name a few. In this section, you can pick up towel racks, soap dispensers, and fragrant bath oils. Style Box also offers homeowners "an exclusive complementary service of designing their bathroom spaces in line with their budget and preferences".

Stylebox can be contacted on 26709744.
