Wallpaper in the bathroom? Sounds like a recipe for moisture problems and mold…

But these beautiful floral designs are in fact not wallpaper at all but rather porcelain stoneware tiles, one among several examples of Marca Corona’s Mirabilia, “a rich and versatile white-body collection that explores the botanical world in all its facets.”

The prospect of having intricate florals in the bathroom doubtless appeals to many an interior designer, and it seems especially appropriate at Maison & Objet in Paris, where flowers are an aesthetic paradigm.

Mirabilia uses a palette of white body tiles, enabling technological innovations like grit applications and the ability to capture precise details, which in turn result in the abstract decorations and nature-inspired designs of Mirabilia.

The rectified 50 x 120 cm tile size confers several advantages: ease of installation (including options for vertical or horizontal orientation); resistance to mold, moisture, and temperature changes; and pronounced cleanability.
