RESTROOM BLING

Brass Kohler Purist faucets shine in Commute Design’s award-winning washroom for Spanish restaurant Patria (478 King St W). Wall-mounted with separate cross-shaped handles for hot and cold, the regal fixtures are a fresh spin on traditional basin taps. They complement such other opulent details as floor-to-ceiling marble and gilded frame mirrors. $945, at Atlantis Bath Centre
