I am remodelling my 13 year old's bathroom and opted for a glamour contemporary look. Tiffany glass tiles, grey and xanxi granite tiles, that goes floor to ceiling. Got the crystal chandelier- the who shebang, but as pretty as those tiles are, it was missing something. It looks so contemporary between grey, black and silver that it needs some life to it. This sink, just breath life to it. Its more of a dark subtle metallic red, the outside is black and because it's so dark, from some angle it looks black. I love it! Best of all, my daughter is so in love with her new bathroom. Delivery was quick, fast anf painfree, Items arrived in perfect condition just like all of my overstock ordered items.
