Feel like your bathroom décor is set in stone—or ceramic tile, or cultured marble? Even if you aren’t buying a new home or planning a major remodel, you may be able to bring new life to your lavatory with the right lighting, wall- and window coverings, accessories and hardware. Take some inspiration from the owner’s bath in our Pearl model home in Irvine California.
Shimmering Romo® Mikado wallcoverings and high-quality orchid reproductions from NDI add natural hints to this spa-like space without the upkeep and daylight demands of living plants. To these, our designers have added Venetian-inspired white mercury glass and polished nickel bottles and fluffy white linens as the area’s main accessories.
It’s important to keep surfaces clear of clutter to preserve a bath’s serene—and clean—first impression. The ample storage in this bathroom’s cherry Kraftmaid® cabinets allows the homeowner to hide away toiletries and other supplies with ease, leaving the Caesarstone® countertops free to shine. Larson-Juhl custom-framed mirrors were created to match the cabinetry and to perfectly fit the wall space above each vanity. Venetian bronze Delta® faucets and showerheads match the towel rings and other hardware.
The ceiling and trim, both Sherwin-Williams® Pearly White (SW 7009), pick up the brightness of the room’s ample recessed, vanity and natural lighting. Pale, neutral tile further contributes to this overall luminous quality: Emser® Pietre Del Nord on the floor and shower surround, and an exquisite Daltile® shower mosaic of baroque stone framed by bronze ¾-inch Urban Metal tiles. A simple Duralee® faux silk shade with Kravet® beaded trim completes this relaxing scene.
