A captivating space was created through the selection of unique materials and the incorporation of innovative technology that allows many of this powder room’s functional elements to be concealed. A wall-hung faucet mounted in the mirror adds to the room’s illusions, along with the sliding doors with no visible track to conceal the necessary storage for supplies. Recycled glass mosaic tiles, aged copper metallic colored porcelain floor tiles, and satin nickel finishes create the perfect balance of sophistication in color. Adel Visser

Luxury Spa Bath

Fri 06 2010

Warm colored marble, natural granite tones, a maple vanity, and an open airy shower and drying area are at the heart of the well-composed welcoming space of this in-home luxury spa. With towels and shampoo close at hand and a bench outside the shower that provides a convenient spot to towel off, the client is sure to feel pampered in the new bathroom. John Sylvestre

Samurai Spirit

Fri 06 2010

Soft silver wallpaper from Japan is used to contrast the polished black pebbles that are stacked to create a shimmering backsplash. Kimono-shaped mirrors and a dramatic 42-inch faucet, which imitates the outline of a samurai sword, further support the culturally-defined environment. The path of the water over a shimmering rock backdrop alludes to a waterfall flowing into a hollowed piece of black granite.  Elina Katsioula-Beall
