A native to Brazil, marbled bromeliad (Neoregelia marmorata) boasts light green leaves with striking red markings on top and bottom. Bright light coaxes maximum leaf color, which peaks as a glowing wine red. Flowers form in the center cup, opening slowly over a long period of time. But most folks grow this beauty for the eye-catching leaves, not the blossoms.
Neutral marble is used floor to ceiling to create an elegant bathroom retreat. Mosaic tiles in soft neutrals and grays are used behind the bathtub for visual texture, while a rainfall showerhead provides a luxurious experience.
