Master Bathroom

As we wanted to maximize the space, create more light and visually extend the wall, when remodeling this master bathroom we chose to cover the walls with light-colored glass tiles. The aqua/seafoam color is very soothing and spa-like, giving a refreshing sparkle to the room, and a beautiful combination with the cappuccino-colored wood cabinetry. The vertical design of the glass tiles with the stripes, covering the master bath walls, was intended to give the space a contemporary, eclectic feel as well as echo the vertical lines of the pair of windows in the vanity area. To accentuate the aquatic, clean, translucent effect of the walls, we created an accent piece above the bathtub. A custom mosaic in the same greenish-blue hues enhance the water effect that we aimed to achieve - we wanted to echo ripples of the water's surface, constantly shifting and moving in rhythmic patterns in shades of blue and green (the appearance of moving water when viewed from below the surface). The vision we had with the striped tile effect, the mosaic and the glass tiles was one of Water. Our aim was to create a space that felt serene and tranquil. We felt that the combination of the shimmering aquatic colors (sea foam, sea spray, water green, etc.) of the walls and the rich cappuccino cabinetry reflected Earth and Water, the warmth of the dark brown perfectly balancing the coolness of the aquatic colors (also incorporating green, earth-friendly products and recyclable glass).
We chose to be consistent in the vertical theme to achieve the effect of running water or a waterfall.

The far yellow-green wall looks similar to Frolic 6703 by Sherwin-Williams.
