We always love seeing completed projects using our tile, and it’s an even greater pleasure when a designer does something unexpected that makes us think “huh, I never thought of that, but it looks fantastic!” Such is the case with this Master Bathroom Suite designed by Lizette M. Bruckstein of Lizette Marie Interior Design in San Fransisco.
Wouldn’t you love to walk into this bathroom every morning? The beautifully carved custom wood doors give a preview of the beautiful tile work within. As you walk through, the striking floor to ceiling niche features Walker Zanger’s Studio Moderne Fretwork Ceramic Tile (Mica is the color BTW). Running the tile all the way to the ceiling, Lizette gives visual height to a room that otherwise might feel constrained because of the sloping ceiling. The Calacata Luna Marble
on the floor and the white walls provide a calming white backdrop for the tile and woodwork to pop!
In the shower the design takes a more contemporary turn with the stacked bricks (again in Mica from the Studio Moderne Collection) and the black tile and floor mosaic (Tribeca Basic Black Marble Hexagon) standing in for the dark wood. I particularly like the giant shower head in the skylight. Probably feels like the water is coming down directly from the heavens!
And then you could be moisturizing at this striking Pullman. Generously proportioned and simply drop dead beautiful, it would be a fab spot to greet each morning and say goodnight in the evening. All together, this project is a fabulous foray in bathroom design, thank you Lizette for sharing the photos with us! Check out more of her work at www.lminteriordesign.com.
Chanel defined it and Cary Grant wears it best of all. It’s classy, elegant, refined, and the go to color when we want to look our most evocative… but is it really a color? The answer to this question is one of the most debated issues on the color wheel. Ask a scientist and you’ll get the physics reply: “Black is not a color, white is a color.” Ask an artist or a child with crayons and you’ll get another: “Black is a color, white is not a color.” (Maybe!)
1. Black is the absence of color (and is therefore not a color)
We could get all scientific here and debate the issue for an entire post… but I pose the question with these examples, for “color or not”, black and white are a striking pair in both design and fashion, creating a most stunning pallet.
Just like Mr. Grant… sexy, and most definitely not for the faint of heart!
