Zen Bathrooms

Twist of Lime

limebath.jpgBath adornments are kept to a minimum, allowing the natural materials and clean lines to speak for themselves. Limestone tiles cover the ledge wall and floor; a limestone slab tops the vanity. Undermounting the sink and tub keeps the attention on the surface materials.

Make a splash with a burst of color in towels and accessories.

A twin medicine chest doubles storage space over the sink.

Glass block windows let in light, but shield from prying eyes.

Stacked bamboo boxes and slatted floor contribute a new texture.

Comfort in Contrasts


This bath is a study in contrasts. White trim, fabrics, and fixtures stand out against a wall palette of cool blues and tidewater greens painted in a mosaic design.

The room’s soft color palette suggests hues of the nearby ocean.

A mahogany mirror and wood chair serve to anchor the cool tones.

Silver accents shimmer on the sink, light, and accessories.

Shells perched on Lucite shelves continue the subtle ocean theme.

Sea of Glass

Tiles in a darker aqua surround the tub area with watery hues.

The large wall mirror is bordered with tile, giving the look of a frame.

Concealed behind a door is a pull-out laundry bin in the vanity.

Accents of chrome and glass distribute sparkling reflections throughout.
