Casa Lluvia Blanca mediterranean bathroom
 

Casa Lluvia Blanca

Nestled into the quiet middle of a block in the historic center of the beautiful colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, this 4,500 square foot courtyard home is accessed through lush gardens with trickling fountains and a luminous lap-pool. The living, dining, kitchen, library and master suite on the ground floor open onto a series of plant filled patios that flood each space with light that changes throughout the day. Elliptical domes and hewn wooden beams sculpt the ceilings, reflecting soft colors onto curving walls. A long, narrow stairway wrapped with windows and skylights is a serene connection to the second floor ''Moroccan' inspired suite with domed fireplace and hand-sculpted tub, and "French Country" inspired suite with a sunny balcony and oval shower. A curving bridge flies through the high living room with sparkling glass railings and overlooks onto sensuously shaped built in sofas. At the third floor windows wrap every space with balconies, light and views, linking indoors to the distant mountains, the morning sun and the bubbling jacuzzi. At the rooftop terrace domes and chimneys join the cozy seating for intimate gatherings.

I would guess these blocks are either made by Pittsburgh Corning or Weck

The floor material is beige travertine. It was purchased from a local stone supplier in Mexico and can be obtained from most stone suppliers in the US.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Modern Mexican Paradise
One of the suite's bathrooms has a gorgeous shower that seems to burst with silvery light. Glass block alternates with bubble- shaped ceramic tile on the shower wall, while smooth travertine marble flooring grounds the rest of the room.
