A House With Zip! contemporary-bathroom
 

A House With Zip!

“Give it zip!” was our client’s plea for the re-creation of their existing 1989 home. It was time for a comprehensive renovation and expansion to the blah and maze-like 3660 SF, two story house.

Chief complaints included: Too compartmentalized, too cramped, cannot entertain, no office for “millions of papers”, no accessible guest suite for aging parents, kids outgrowing their rooms, dated kitchen and baths, forgotten back yard, uninviting front entry. The house also flooded on occasion.

In response to these challenges, all existing spaces were updated, enlarged, and opened, and a new home office and guest suite were created, increasing the area to 4910 SF. Outside, a new pool and outdoor living areas were added. New xeriscaped yards include berms and an arroyo to intercept and redirect pesky floodwaters.
The finished home integrates two themes: regional rustic charm on the exterior and comfortable contemporary cool [zip!] on the interior.

Design: Mark Lind
Project Management: Jon Strain

I like the idea of this backsplash becuase it adds a lot of interest to the bathroom. But I don't really like the actual tile on the backsplash. Again it feels too busy for me. I like these mosiac tiles, but I'm worried it's trendy and will make my bathroom look too dated in years to come. Want something more classic.
