Get the balance right. "This is a steam shower, which is why the ceiling is sloped and tiled, the glass goes all the way up to the ceiling and there's a hinged panel that can be cranked open," says Ines Hanl. "The shower has white Thassos marble on the walls and a black marble mosaic on the floor, both of which are inspired by the color scheme in the rest of the bathroom— black and white marble mosaic for the floor and black-stained cherry cabinetry."
She adds, "This bathroom is in a house where there's a more modern-inclined husband and a traditional-favoring wife. To keep things balanced, the shower got a bit more of a reduced treatment."
