Nature In Design

“Colors don’t have to be bright to pop! Subdued, muted tones can be combined in different parts of a bathroom, to really make a room pop with color. Nature is often a huge inspiration for my design. Bring the serene feeling of nature (colors, patterns, textures), into the home, is a great, simple way to “de-drab” your home this winter.” ~Erica Lugbill

Crystal chandeliers might be mini in scale, but they create a large impact in a master bathroom. Like an accessory is to an outfit, they are the perfect finishing touch for a classic bathroom.

This elegant bathroom features Carrera marble flooring along with classic white subway tile. The contrast between the dark gray walls and white trim completes this master bathroom.

Designer tip: purchase standard size stone flooring and have your installer cut it in half to create a custom size. This significantly cuts the cost of your materials and sets your bathroom apart from the rest.

Tile texture creates a dramatic accent wall in this contemporary master bathroom. The rich finishes in this space can include espresso cabinetry, quartz countertops, and ceramic tile.

By building a surround for a cabinet and tiling the enclosure, a custom storage solution was created. This turned a standard cabinet into a beautiful, integrated portion of the bathroom.
