2010 Decorator ShowcaseContemporary Bathroom, San Francisco

Taking the elements of the traditional 1929 bathroom as a spring board, this bathroom’s design asserts that modern interiors can live beautifully within a conventional backdrop. While paying homage to the work-a-day bathroom, the finished room successfully combines modern sophistication and whimsy. The familiar black and white tile clad bathroom was re-envisioned utilizing a custom mosaic tile, updated fixtures and fittings, an unexpected color palette, state of the art light fixtures and bold modern art. The original dressing area closets, given a face lift with new finish and hardware, were the inspiration for the new custom vanity - modern in concept, but incorporating the grid detail found in the original casework.

    Thank you Cynthia and Platemark design. They are correct, the drawer was constructed to fit around the plumbing.

    Looks great and a good fix to architects plans which has no storage at any bathroom sink. Who built it for you all?

    How did you order the tile- was it all custom ordered? Or did you get the tiles and write out the words yourself and the shading?

    We would be happy to assist with the custom vanity and typically the lead time is 6 weeks, but depends on the fabricators work load. As for the tile, contact Ann Saks in San Francisco and inquire about Trend tile.

    Hello, we designed the drawers to wrap around the plumbing. If you look closely at the top drawer you can see the solution. Thanks for the question!

    Hello, the cabinet dimensions are: 1'-9 1/2" deep x 2'-3 1/2" wide.

Another great place for a rollout is in the cabinet underneath the sink, as shown here. Often, plumbing gets in the way of seeing (and using) all the space in this area. A rollout helps eliminate this problem, making much of the space below easily accessible.

5. San Francisco BathroomThis image reminds me of an Eric Carle illustration. The room has a wonderful use of color and texture in the floor and in the drawers. It's a whimsical space that isn't trying to be overly serious.More photos from this project
