How are the shelves attached to the wall?

floating shelves are typically installed one of two ways:
solid core shelves: using a metal plate with two (or more) fingers that protrude and insert into the shelf. the plate is screwed to the wall and then the shelf slides over the fingers - no hardware is visible. usually there is a little screw on the top of the shelf that secures the shelf against the finger (like you secure a towel rod to the bracket on the wall)
hollow core shelve: use a wooden cleat - attach it to the wall and then slide the shelf (its hollow and open on the back side) over it and secure it with screws from the top of the shelf, into the cleat.

The vessel is by Kohler.
The Teak slab is custom and yes it has a clear marine varnish on it.

the wall hung toilet is by American Standard. Also one of my favorites is the wall hung Phillipe Starck by Duravit, it is sleak and contemporary.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Interview: Timeless Kitchen and Bath Design
EW: When a client uses the adjectives, Zen, organic, or spa when describing the feel of their dream bath, what thoughtscome to mind, and how do you translate these ideas into your designs? EI: It is very important to be specific with clients about what Zen, organic and spa means to them. For example, my client may think the beach is spa-like, however I associate a Japanese bathhouse with a spa. Each is very different. It comes down to our own experiences about what Zen means to each of us individually. Typically throw out those kind of questions and ask questions about the kinds of materials we use, i.e. pebble or teak floor, grasscloth wallpaper or horizontal ship-lap, etc. Above: Creating a Zen bath has everything to do with choosing the right fixtures and materials. An angular vessel sink atop teak wood, pebble tiled-floors, and a restful wall color create a spa-like atmosphere in the middle of the city.
Natalie Myers added this to Up and Away: Gravity-Defying Furniture
People seem to be afraid of using the floating vanity for lack of storage space. This is definitely a concern in a master bathroom, but less so in a powder room or guest bathroom. Here, the designer used the underside of the counter for the towel rod for a resourceful, space-saving solution.
4. Simplify StorageHalf-empty bottles of shampoo, abandoned beauty supplies and perfume samples pile up fast, taking up valuable space in bathrooms. Storage solutions aren't always attractive, so save yourself time, money and space by editing your bathroom supplies. Take a realistic look at what you really need each day, and store or get rid of the rest. Designer tip: If you still need more storage, look to your walls for the answer. Bright and Pollard suggest installing something above the toilet tank, as it's a space that's often unused. High cabinets often work well for items used less often. Want even more storage? Switch out your pedestal sink for a vanity or place a few well-chosen baskets (with lids) in an empty corner. Tell us: What simple tricks have you used to update your bathroom?
