Hermogeno Designs

Featured in Design Journal Magazine, Window Fashions Vision Magazine and Second Place winner Wonderful Walls category of the Window Fashions and Hunter Douglas Envision Competition.
Mark wanted the main floor powder room to be very modern and to have the feel of a boutique hotel which, by the request of the clients, would be a unique room that would make everyone talk. The decorator’s idea of being submerged in water was mixed with the matriarch’s love of stainless steel and metal. So the mixing of the two ideas produced a striking room translating traditional concepts to modern in the form of glass mosaic tile wainscoting and hand strie’d metalic walls mixing with stainless plumbing fixtures, lighting and hardware.

I do know someone in Fort Lauderdale if that is close to you. If not, you should be able to do an internet search for faux finishers or decorative painter and ask them if they could a strie finish.

Uncut glass, like the top row of this wainscot, doesn't have to be finished if the edge is smooth. Some glass tile lines do have trim pieces, so be sure to ask your salesperson. And, as mentioned above, Schluter strips work too.

For the top you can leave the edge exposed as the glass has a nice clean look and run a thin bead of caulk. As mentioned Schluter works very well. For the vertical corners you can cut the glass mosaic and detach the cut edge from the mesh and flip it so that the cut edge is not exposed but grouted, and you have a nice clean (and not sharp) corner. Or you can use a Schluter stip...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This is a great example of how a small sink can be separate from the storage unit of the bathroom and yet be integral in its design. This great bowl-shaped blue sink stands on its own. Since it takes up so little space, there is plenty of room for that tall storage shelf in the corner.
Going back to the bathrooms, this is an example of how mosaic tiles can be used to create a pattern that gives the illusion of a more textured room. The fact that the tiles are used on the floor as well as partway up the wall changes your perception of the space in the room. By using multiple colors here and laying the tiles out in a way that they don't create a traditional grid pattern, you get a really fun look that is great for the daring and bold designer.
