I couldn’t help but spread the blog love on this post I saw at Ready Made. Incredible to think you can build a permanent seating fixture in your garden with some wooden stakes, plywood, soil and sod. If you build this at your home we’d like to hear about your experience! Also… we’d like to know what detergent you use to get the grass stains out of your clothes.
Earlier we featured our Mediterranean inspired home in Tanglewood and their fabulous Juicy Third Floor Spa! It’s no surprise that the third floor spa isn’t the only stunning bathroom in the home. Each room has its’ own personality and style – let’s explore the looks and trends in high-end bathrooms that makes this house such a showstopper!
Bathroom #1: Powder Bath
The art deco glamour of Old Hollywood is captured in this stunning bathroom. The plaster faux finish walls was completed by Segreto Finishes and is set off by a unique Hotel ZaZa inspired glass mosaic framed mirror. The vanity was a pre-fabricated chest of drawers modified to be used as a sink vanity, the vanity was topped with black cosmic granite and a drop-in vessel sink with black mosaic metal studs. The masculinity of the dark colors and heavy materials is balanced off by the curvinlinear lines in the arches, lighting fixtures, and vanity.
Bathroom #2: Pool Bath
The groin-vault ceiling elevates the stonework in the ceiling and frames the vanity out perfectly! The countertop is wall hung, framed out in wood and then covered with split faced Sienna Blend Stack Stone. The wall in inset with Oceania Tess Copper Tone Blend Mosaics; the details of which you can’t see the the photos, but there are pink and blue hues which are highlighted in the stone, glass, and iridescent mosaic! The blend of textures in the mosaic between the glass and rustic materials provided the pattern that the room needed to make it interesting. Also, note the gorgeous shadow from the curvaceous lantern along the wall.
Bathroom #3: Master Bathroom
This stunning marble bathroom is decked in both Emperador Marble as well as a white marble. Most marble comes with fissures, or baby cracks, in it so when you receive your piece of marble inspect it carefully for hairline fractures so that it won’t break over time. The gorgeous stand alone jet tub in the room is a fantastic choice as it will require less maintenance over time; water jets, by virtue of their design, can get mold buildup in the jets. The His and Hers bathroom is divided by a 2 person shower with intricately designed interior windows. (Unfortunately they were not installed yet during the time of this photo shoot!) Every feature of this bathroom is softly lit with carefully placed crystal lighting fixtures.
Bathroom #4: The Guest Bathroom
A blend of Alkusari Stone, Travertine, and Limestone are laid out in a beautiful blend in the backsplash and flooring of this bathroom. A mosaic ribbon in both of those locations brings a focal point lit by an inlaid sconce in the mirror. By drilling a hole in the mirror and installing the sconce inside of it we were able to take the mirror wall to wall to visually add space to the room. The frameless shower door is a great addition and also adds to the illusion of added space.
Bathroom #5: The Third Floor Spa
If you haven’t already checked out our Third Floor Spa inspired bathroom, you should check it out now; we had so much to share we devoted an entire entry to it!
Bathroom #6 and #7: The Girls’ Bathrooms
These little girls bathrooms pay homage to the innocence, purity, and sweetness of little girls! The Calacatta Marble floors are reflected in the mirror-front cabinets with pink crystal knobs. The pink hues on the walls are so feminine, light, and airy and pick up the watermelon inlaid mosaics in the sink backsplash. The closets are a girls’ dream with zebra carpeting with a custom-designed wardrobe! It almost makes me want to hand over my childhood Caboodles!
Introducing our latest line, Gabby.
Gabby asks us to, “Forget everything you know about antique reproduction furniture.”
Why? Gabby has a better idea.
Gabby knows you don’t want a hastily produced mass replication piece. You love antiques because of the quality construction. Because they have character. Because they have lasted the test of time in both style and function. Gabby has a great idea. They modify found antiques to update them or incorporate used woods, metals, textiles, or hardware. You have to check out their Unique Finds section which is one of a kind, found antiques from all over the world. There isn’t a showroom in Houston – yet – but check out their website or give us a call and we’ll walk you through the catalogue.
