    Yes, the tiles do have a sealant on them though I do not recall which one.

    Thanks for your kind words. The slate we used here has a relatively rough and varied surface but in the shower area for ease of cleaning honed slate was installed. The room is about 10' x 11' give or take a few inches. The ceiling is 8'.

    Yes, there is a shallow planter about 1.5" deep and it is waterproofed so the moisture from the moss does not rot out the framing it sits on. No drainage is required as the moss doesn't really get watered like a plant but rather it is misted with a spray bottle so it doesn't get too wet. The moss garden in the entry of the house is a bit deeper at 4" so that it could be used for other small plants in addition to the moss.

    One way to get diffused light is to live in the Pacific Northwest in a forested area. The skylight in this picture is a clear, fixed 2'x2' skylight. The roof structure is heavily insulated making the roof structure deep, the curb the skylight is mounted on makes the light well even deeper. With a fairly long shaft for the light to get through it generally hits the sides of the light shaft rather than shining directly into the room. On a sloped roof a similar diffusion will occur if the skylight is facing north as the sun rarely comes directly from that direction (unless you live in the southern hemisphere). Frosted skylights and the ever popular light tubes tend to give an artificial feeling to the light as no sky is visible. You might as well put in an LED light panel and save on the heat loss or gain.

    The tub is a Duravit Stark acrylic tub. It comes in a wide array of sizes and configurations and any color you want so long as you want white.

    The floors throughout the house are concrete with a light acid etch finish and integrated radiant heating.

    Yes, those are true slate tiles. They are ungauged which gives them varying thickness to add to the overall texture. The tiles in the area of the shower are honed so that they don't have the heavy texture which would be difficult to clean.

    All of the faucets in the house are Grohe. I believe the shower head is as well.

Moss at HomeMoss, in its natural state, also appears in contemporary residential designs. This recently built home on the San Juan Islands, off the coast of Washington state, features moss gardens in its entry and main bathroom. The architect, who built this home for his mother, harvested the moss from the site before construction began, and incorporated it into the project as a reminder of the surrounding natural landscape.

Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: Just What Mom Wanted, Off the Washington CoastJan 20, 2014

A moss garden enriches the main bathroom. Marie wanted the space to be like a grotto, but Gladwish went for a not-too-literal interpretation with slate tiles.The countertop and the bath and shower ledge are actually bulletproof glass that Gladwish salvaged from a bank. He kept the glass for years before sanding it down to create a frosted glass-look. “It’s very heavy stuff, and it was lots of work lugging it around over the years,” he says. “But this is better than throwing away that much plastic in a landfill.”
