Encino Modern

This remodeled bathroom now serves as powder room for the kitchen/family room and a guest bath adjacent to the media room with its pull-down Murphy bed. Since the bathroom opens directly off the family room, we created a small entry with planter and low views to the garden beyond. The shower now features a deck of ironwood, smooth-trowel plaster walls and an enclosure made of 3-form recycle resin panels with embedded reeds. The space is flooded with natural light from the new skylight above.

Hi there, For these bathroom walls we used a smooth troweled cement plaster with a sealer. The construction is much like you would use/see on exterior walls.

what sealer did you use over the plaster? Currently getting ready to do a venetian plaster shower. I have read about using waxes or sealers and just trying to grt more info. Thanks!

The "curtain" is actually a fixed panel of resin by 3Form: http://www.3-form.com/. The possibilities are endless as you mix and match colors and textures. Have fun!

Perhaps the page formatting has changed. I'm looking all over the page but see no link for "More Info". It would be nice to know the actual product name used? Is it Milestone?

Hi, I just noticed this comment.....the walls are simply smooth trowel cement plaster with the natural gray color exposed. There is no actual product to buy...just standard cement plaster.

We used ironwood, also known as Ipe. You can simply treat it with oil (like a butcher block counter) depending on the wood type. It will take a bit of maintenance - oiling it once/year for example.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Step Into a Refreshing Outdoor Shower
This space plays with the boundaries between indoors and out, with the stunning glass panel marking the dividing line. The shower is open to the sky.
ds design studio added this to Get the Look: Falling Water in the Bath
Translucent resin panel with embedded reeds. A ribbon of water seems to flow from the upper left side of the shower. Reeds provide a natural element and visual texture and define the directional flow. Behind it is a rainfall shower head. This panel from 3form is made from 40-percent recycled resin.
Vertical plantings inspire and reflect the lines of this outdoor shower as well. The shower curtain picks up the vertical lines, with shimmers of light between, a perfect echo of the horsetail reeds seen here.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Japanese
Style Secret: PlantsIntroducing a touch of living greenery infuses a Japanese-style interior with vitality. Choose traditional plants such as bonsai and bamboo, potted in sleek, minimalist containers made of wood, stone or another organic substance. Keep the palette focused — green foliage is more appropriate than a bounty of colorful blooms.East meets West: Want to venture beyond classic Japanese plants? Bring in specimens that suit the style's sleek, minimalist look: horsetail, ornamental grasses and more. Or explore ikebana, the time-honored art of flower arranging (and there's no shame in having the florist pinch-hit if you're all thumbs when it comes to floral design).
Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Texture
The surface textures in this spalike outdoor shower area make it so very special. According to the designer: "The shower now features a deck of ironwood, smooth-trowel plaster walls and an enclosure made of recycled resin panels with embedded reeds." The privacy panel with the embedded reeds echoes the nearby planting of reedlike horsetail (Equisetum hyemale) — a nice, textural touch.
