California Cool in the Castro-Bathroom

This Castro neighborhood remodel presented the challenge of transfroming two rather ordinary, window-less bathrooms into modern spa-like rooms. We drew upon water for our inspiration to create a cool and refreshing feeling. The master bathroom tone is established by Carrera marble floors and walls of handmade glass mosaic tiles the color of water flecked with subtle streaks of dark red. A wall-hung wood vanity inspired by a piece of modernist furniture appears to float above the floor. Decorative light fixtures placed directly on the wall-to-wall mirrors bring together the tones of the wood cabinet, polished chrome plumbing fixtures and white porcelain sink. At the powder room, a backlit shoji screen in a narrow slot opposite the vanity was introduced as a lighting element, creating the impression of natural light from a window. Photos by Mark Brand.

Counter material and floor material - The bathroom is beautiful, modern and simply clean. I am curious what you used for the counter material and the floor in the shower? Is the shower curb-less? Thank you so much...

I would also love to know where I could get the mosaic tiles from and the name of the colour? I am from Australia.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Freshen up your bathroom with a single stem or a bouquet like this one.
Use clear glass on the shower door and a matching tile in the stall. This extends the tile color and pattern and makes the room feel bigger.

This is attractive, although it seems like the green glass is a bit overdone - could have use a little bit less here it seems - but overall, a very nice feel.

General idea. Tile backsplash, faucet from wall, large mirror...lights coming out of mirror vs. pendant? Also consider mirror floating forward a little with lighting coming from behind? Like sink with counter space on sides
