The Owner of this weekend home on a river wanted a luxurious bathing experience. The existing bathroom was dominated by a spa recessed into the floor.
We tiled the floor with tumbled onyx mosaic tile and the walls with a restful green pulled from the onyx mixture. We set the tub, in which the bather is submerged in a deep, tranquil pool with water cascading over the edge and recirculating, under new windows that allowed a view of the meandering river. The end of the tub provided a seat in the open shower and a recessed area for shampoo and accoutrements. A hand-held shower, low tub spout, and ceiling shower kept walls clear of distractions. A wall-hung toilet and cantilevered vanity kept the focus on the tile work and a towel warmer provided heat for towels and for the room.
