Halloween Bathroom Sets | Britain offers quite a bit to respond to because you are looking for state housing. I had a pal that lived on the council estate which has been clearly designed to remind the inhabitants with their station in your life. The buildings were pre-war dark bricked edifices with narrow stair wells and dark corners. The waist-high walls of the wind-swept corridors were brick and punctuated every few meters having a small opening covered in iron bars. Every time I visited this friend I would leave feeling quite depressed and breathed a sigh of relief when I got back to my humble but well lit and open home several miles away.
So imagine my surprise when on visiting Bolzano – a small alpine town in Italy, I discovered that their state housing looked similar to an individual block that you could get in the greater parts of London.
The buildings had light coloured exteriors and large balconies, covered in window baskets therefore the tenants could fill them with colour. And this they did with gusto. They were lovely and go to reveal that basic things needn’t be unattractive which when we invested added time in good design we can lift the spirits of the less fortunate than ourselves.
I noticed the same with another latin proponent of proper design. This time it was a Spanish Bathroom manufacturer called Roca, who’s basic 4 Piece Bathroom set referred to as the Roca Polo signifies that basic does not have to mean unattractive, or lacking quality. The simple toilet and basin are actually designed to look great in virtually any environment but haven’t been over engineered, so they’re still eminently affordable.

So there it really is. Manufacturers and architects please note. Good design makes people happy. End of rant.
