I love photo shoot time. Its typically only then do I feel like a space is really done. Weirdly in the world of interiors vs decorating there isn’t an ‘ah ha’ finishing moment so much. So the shoot is when you can step back and feel pretty darn good about the way a space turned out. This is a guest bath at ‘Big P’ (the old house was a massive pink stucco one, the ‘P’ for pink stuck!) We fell in love with the green tile early on and wanted to use it somewhere fun. Clearly with that much fun the rest of the space needed to be toned down and clean.
I pulled the Duravit wall hanging sink early on as a suggestion for a couple bathrooms in the house – it gives the visual appearance of more space since it’s floating and has great storage in the massive pull out drawer. I also love the easy cleaning of the single sink/top. Once going with a wall hung vanity – why stop there! We did a wall hung toilet as well, for the same concept of opening up the space as much as we could. In the same vein we had Apex (the GC) build a cherry frame to match the vanity, covering the whole remaining wall space with mirror to reflect as much light into the space as we could. For me it helps warm up all the clean lines too. Key for a modern space.
I love how the tile color changes in different lighting. The teak stool looks pretty killer with the green too! I love that it reminds me of a cork!
Lastly, and our finishing touch we got up a fun patterned roman shade to help tie the green together as well as to soften the feel of the space. Never discount the power of a roman shade!
