“This room is special because it speaks to the importance of feeling comfortable in every room of your home,” explained interior designer Chanika Jones of OBMI.
“Clients often spend much time redoing spaces within their home but neglect the bathroom which, in my opinion, should be given more attention considering how much time one spends in there.”
With a mere 200 square feet to work with, the client desired a space big and comfortable enough for two that maximised a view of the outdoors but still afforded privacy. Jones reconfigured the space using frosted glass to separate the three individual rooms which allowed natural light to filter through the space. She then used a neutral colour palette with an Asian theme to give the entire bathroom the sense of calm desired by the client.
“The concept derived from an Asian theme and was centred on tranquility and comfort. Asian themes are very much inspired by a natural colour palette and the use created a very relaxing ambiance,” explained Jones.
A grey marbled, polished granite countertop from Surface Trends sits atop a Kraftmaid double sink vanity with Kohler fixtures sourced from BAC and Joshua Bate Trading. In the adjacent bathing room, a freestanding oval tub and separate shower area features a custom frosted-glass barn door supplied by Island Glass and mosaic floor tiles by Pembroke Tile & Stone.
“The wall and floor tile were selected for their cool earth tones while relying more on accessories and accents for colour. The warm accents of browns, tans and soft neutrals in the tile tend to have a direct effect on relaxation and a sense of calm in a space.”
The designer completed this luxury bathroom project in February of this year, leaving both the client and herself very pleased with the outcome.
“The client was very open-minded; however, he knew exactly what he wanted to achieve,” concluded Jones. “It was a great partnership and a pleasure bringing to life what he had in mind for his bathroom.”
