Baldwin residence

The slightly whimsical shower niche with thassos mosaic background and blue macaubas water jet birds (New Ravenna "Flight" pattern) was designed for my daughter, keeping in mind that she will, one day, grow up!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Paul Anater added this to Mosaics Bring a Classical Art Form Home
This mosaic shower has the subtlety of a haiku. The walls are covered in small pieces of white marble, and the bird silhouettes are rendered in a quartzite called Blue Macauba. Natural stone can be delicate; this installation proves that point elegantly.
Laura Gaskill added this to Tile Floors Help a Hot Home Chill Out
Consider a mosaic accent on walls or floors. The swallows shown here are part of a mosaic done on a bathroom wall, though a similar design would look spectacular on a floor as well. Mosaics do tend to cost more, but even a small area can make a big design impact.
