Aloha Veleta,
Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, these LED recessed lights are by WAC Lighting. The squares are a nice complement to the space.

I agree; they echo the square shapes in the tiles and the recess. Nicely done.

Aloha and thank you!
Isn't that long handle stunning?!
We purchased that through our glass contractor as he has an account with CR Laurence. It is called the "Extra Length Ladder Pull."
Check out their extensive selection here: http://www.crlaurence.com/crlapps/showline/default.aspx?GroupID=10845&History=39326:1:39327:9307&pom=0
If they do not sell to the public, which they may not, ask them for an authorized dealer in your area or contact a reputable glass shop.
Thanks again for noticing this beautiful detail.

Aloha and thank you for asking and for the kind compliment.
This shower is 72" x 44". We expanded the shower footprint by stealing a foot of space from the adjacent bedroom.
The transition from the 5' wide bath to the 6' wide shower is on an angle which better positions the Dyson hand dryer out of the way and holds a recessed mirrored cabinet that may be seen from the shower (for men shaving in the shower).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Convert Your Tub Space to a Shower — the Planning Phase
Consider your lighting and tile layout from the start. This is key to a polished-looking shower. Make sure to include lights in your shower, not just around it. Depending on your shower size and makeup, one, two or four lights might look best. When you remove your old tub and tub surround to make room for the new shower, this is a perfect time to check that your light system can be installed like you had planned. Often the ceiling framing above a tub can be easily adjusted to accommodate a lighting plan.Don't tile without the finished light sources in place. Without a light source in place, it is hard to know how any lippage might look. In a shower the lights are often quite close to the wall, which will show every little flaw in a tile installation.Tip: Plan your tile layouts early, using the ceiling height as a reference. Try to avoid sliver cuts in tile layouts. Drawing the layout on paper helps — once you have this finalized, you can use your fixed tile grout lines to lay out shampoo niche locations and shower fixtures.More ways to light up your shower

Take out the door if it's causing problems. Who says you need a door anyway? And look into heated floors if you decide not to have a shower door. Floor heat is very good at keeping the bathroom floor dry in addition to warm. Tip: If you plan to have a doorless shower, you'll need to be extra careful when using a handheld shower fixture. A fixed showerhead or rain head (such as the one in this photo) will keep the water inside the new shower.
