The home owners of this dated ’70s home wanted a fully open-concept, colorful and inviting space that had moments of mid-century funk. The owner’s suite originally contained a traditional bathroom with dark travertine tile and bronze medallion accents.
The transformation began by reconfiguring the layout of the bathroom to include an oversized shower with waterfall slab bench, private toilet room, a spacious double vanity and a full height built-in linen closet. A window is centered between both mirrors to allow natural light to flood the newly vaulted space.
The glass-enclosed shower features eye-catching black-and-white marbled tile that makes a statement in this stunning transformation. The high-contrast aesthetic found in the tile continues throughout the space with black sinks set in the stark white countertop. Four asymmetrical sconces frame the gold-accented mirrors, pulling inspiration from the mid-century funky flair of the home.
To balance out the harsh contrast of the space, natural warmth is added with slab-front oak cabinetry. Matte black and gold accented hardware round out this modernized ’70s bathroom.
