The custom-made bath and concrete floor creates a modern look, while the old-fashioned glass fronted cabinet adds interest to the room.
Concreations (opens in new tab) could make a concrete bath and floor. Go to World's End Tiles (opens in new tab) for similar mosaics. The Roman Blind Studio (opens in new tab) could make fabric from Pierre Frey's Imprimes collection into a blind for you.
