Explanation:
(or something like that but a bit more elegantly phrased!)
To me it sounds like contemporary design that pays its dues to classic interpretations. But like you, I suppose, I haven't seen the bathroom yet...

Explanation:
"The design is minimalist, yet soft, and combines a modern line tinged with hues of country inspiration"

ornate quaintness


Explanation:
The design is both minimalist and soft: it combines the simplicity of modernity and a certain degree of ornate quaintness.
Non la migliore frase di questo mondo, ma mi sembra che ornate sia l'aggettivo che fa al caso tuo, in opposizione alle linee minimaliste moderne, quaint significa anche campagnolo, non trend, old-fashioned, anche leggermente cafoncello. Vedi Webster.
