Would you like a sneak peak at materials for the bathroom oasis I’m having installed at the 38th street house? Here’s a preview of all the tile selections I ended up making for the spa-style master bath in the rear addition.
First, I chose a decorative tile called “Bohemian Black.” A cool thing about this tile is that it can create a variety of patterns depending on how the stripes are placed up against one another. So designers can create patterns from chevron to waves to various sized blocks and rectangles. It’s kind of mind-bending, actually. Boho at its best!
I don’t always like tile with a print like this but I thought this one had a really nice hand-painted design. Here’s a close-up of the detailing:
Next, I chose an ocean white marble for the shower walls. This look is classic, and the feeling you get in the shower is sleek and clean. Marble is decadent and earthy at the same time.
The black pebbles are for the shower floor. This evokes the feel of ancient cobblestone streets underfoot. The smooth, natural-feeling black stones remind me of hot stone massages, too. This tile evokes artisanal craftsmanship and high-end luxury at once.
The stacked marble is for an accent shower wall and the base of the shower bench. Stacked stone creates a special feeling and a tactile surface juxtaposing the smooth marble on opposing walls. Also, this honey-dappled color warms up the space a bit.
I wanted to stick to the spa feel for this bathroom, and I think the bohemian tiles add a nice balance to the modern marble in the shower. All in all, the combination of stone surfaces along with the bohemian pattern echoes the old-world, classic feel that we find in the best spas internationally. I can’t wait to show you all these tiles in place!
