Our clients bought a Craftsman house in St. Paul and went through a whole home remodel. We got the chance to check out the project during construction. They already had subs lined up for their remodel, but were looking for help for the design side. As we started talking and asking them about their design styles, they both shared a love for earthy colors like deep greens, burnt oranges, and blues. They also have a love for pieces inspired by places around the world. Here’s how we helped to incorporate a more modern vibe into their master bathroom.
In this St. Paul home, our clients were looking for help on design selections for the kitchen, fireplace, main floor bathroom, and master bathroom. They were working with another contractor on the construction, but we were able to work with them on all of the tile, plumbing, and lighting pieces for the space. For the master bathroom, they were looking for accent tile that would become the statement in the shower. Being able to incorporate a double sink vanity was another priority, as this bathroom was an addition to the house and is right off the master bedroom.
The blue absolique shaped tile creates a statement wall on the back of the shower, on the ceiling, continued on the floor and in the niche. Black fixtures, lighting, and mirrors add darker elements to this otherwise bright and light space. Marble-looking porcelain tile was great way to add in that luxurious feel without the high price tag or lots of maintenance and is continued from the floor, to the tile edge, and for the shower surround as well, giving the bathroom a cohesive feel. A gray vanity with darker countertops provides a neutral base for the rest of the space.
