And so it has been since man first drew on the walls of his caves some 3 million years ago... which we now refer to as 'Art'.
Which is also one of the many things that makes humans different to other species.
This is basic art college stuff you are talking about - which I'm sure you are well aware off - so what exactly is your point here ?
I don't know how to make it more clear: the concept, design of these rooms, especially bathrooms, is crazy. Stand-alone baths where water spillage is a danger to the structure of the building, where a shower can't be used other than if you are sitting down, where swathes of curtain fabric are in close proximity to water and in an ambience which is bound to be pretty damp much of the time; that's the problem in one room alone. In essence, it's all about show and little to do with rightness to purpose.
It's supposed to make the peasants reading the magazines think Wow! One day! whereas those in the money bracket that can afford this tosh are just driven into further competition to outdo the page in front of their eyes. I believe it comes under the heading of aspirational publishing...
In other words, and to complete the circle, it's all a form of ego/financial masturbation.
And let me restate, yet again, that from the start I did not knock the photographic competence of the work, simply the ethic behind it.
