I Love Designing Bathrooms!

Tile is one of my favorite design pleasures and over the years I've had the opportunity to design a lot of mountain bathrooms. Here are some cabin and rustic mountain lodge bathrooms I really enjoyed working on.

The bathroom below doesn't have a lot of tile, but it is a beautiful bathroom. I love the free-standing tub set into the arched niche with its rustic fittings, the custom designed area rug, and the stone wall.

Above and below are tile details from the shower stall.

Does pretty work in mountain cabins? Take a look, below, and you tell me. Several years ago I worked with a client who loved soft pastel colors and floral patterns. We remodeled the master bathroom to her liking.

Recently, I helped a client with a contemporary bathroom. I would love the opportunity to work on more contemporary projects, especially with clients who love high end finishes and detailing like this.

I designed the following bathroom for a modern mountain Arts and Crafts house. The client wanted Native American influences throughout the house and asked for a soft turquoise and red color palette. We used brighter versions of these colors in the furnishings but chose to keep the bathrooms somewhat muted. I love the crackled finish on the aqua field tile we used in the shower. The Indian motif mosaics were custom designed by me and created on the site.

Lastly, here are a couple of photos from a Lahontan lodge style house. The tile is handsome and simple but mountain themed, as the client wished.

Just one more thought on bathrooms, a lot can be achieved affordably. I usually like to put the impact into the deco tile and save money on the field tiles. But below in the same Lahontan lodge, a simple inexpensive but graphic idea, punches up the volume in a deco border.
