We recently completed transforming a separate bath and bedroom into an ensuite. The older home in St Paul had an outdated small bathroom. The pedestal sink didn’t allow for any storage and the shower was small. LiLu put pencil to paper and reconfigured the space. The new plan has a larger shower, a vanity cabinet with pull-out storage, and a linen cabinet rather than a closet.
Plan after – now the bath and bedroom are an ensuite, with a larger shower and vanity.

The bathroom has become an innovative opportunity to bring spa like comforts to your home. We enjoy helping create retreat spaces for clients and today’s post is all about what’s new from Kohler.
VibrAcoustic baths combine clean modern design with soothing sound technology. Vibrations resound throughout your body to relax and clam you like never before. Unwind or recharge to original compositions or listed to your own playlist as you bathe.
VibrAcoustic transducers broadcast sound waves that travel through the water and gently resound in the body. Strategically positioned throughout the bath to provide the most beneficial effects to the entire body, these transducers are concealed under the shell of the bath for a smooth, uninterrupted bathing surface.
Your music. Your shower. Your time. To chill out. To sing. Refresh. Energize. Escape. The Moxie showerhead + wireless speaker delivers up to 7 hours of music, news and more by pairing wirelessly with your device enabled with Bluetooth® technology. Just you + water + clean, clear sound.
The Veil wall-hung toilet is the perfect solution. With its concealed tank and minimal footprint, Veil can save up to 12 inches of coveted bathroom real estate over floor mounted toilets. And its modern style fits beautifully with contemporary bathrooms.
Veil’s tank and mounting hardware are out of sight behind the wall, which helps make the toilet look sleek and seamless. And the raised bowl makes cleaning underneath it easy.
The innovative dual-toned trip lever features two different flush options combined into one unique handle. The longer green lever provides a light flush (for liquid waste) at 1.1 gallons and the full lever gives a complete flush (for solid waste) at 1.6 gallons.
The two-toned trip lever is located on the side of the tank, just like a traditional toilet, so flushing is intuitive. And the top of the tank is free to store toiletries or facial tissue

In design and fashion, everything is recycled again at some point. Colors, shapes and motifs come back reinterpeted into new forms. But sometimes the association with the past is too much for some to overcome and be appreciated. Below are some examples. You be the judge, would you welcome these trends into your home?
You’ve probably seen an outdated bathroom in an old house. The pink/mauve bathroom was popular in the 90′s…. and generally is not that desirable today. We’ve recently been shown a new product that is attempting to bring the pink back to the bathroom, but in a more updated way. Check it out. What do you think? Can you get over the past or are your color associations too strong to change?
This tile brings pink into the bathroom in a more updated way, combining it with gray.
Quirky designer, Jonathan Adler is attempting to bring the brightly colored sink to American bathrooms and kitchens everywhere.
Are you remembering this?
How about avocado/limey green in the bathroom?

Today in “Peek at a Project,” we are taking you behind the camera lens to see a photoshoot we recently conducted to document a client’s master bathroom. We worked with our photographer to capture the story of this space- and the story is all about the unique materials. In order to tell that story, we took lots of close-up detail shots.
When you look at the photos, you will notice the sleek and modern Hansgrohe faucets, the countertops from Cambria’s latest collection of colors, and the one-of-a-kind accent tile by Mixed Up Mosaics that features custom colors chosen specifically for our client.
Details, details, details! Getting a close up of the tile and Hansgrohe faucets:

Saving the best for last is this Master Bathroom. The client’s love of the color red shows through in a bold, sophisticated way. Again, with a monochromatic shell being the base of the design with pops of color used to highlight this unique space.
Limestone in Gasgogne Blue Honed finish lines the floor.
Applied in a vertical stripe in the mirror and shower is the smallest porcelain in the world. The I Frammenti which can be found at RBC Tile & Stone is a porcelain that is applied on a 12 x 12 mesh sheet. It is a fabulous tile that we all fell in love with. I personally would love to make a dress out of the tile…who says you can’t!
This project was truly inspiring for LiLu to work on. It embraces the beauty of design and our love for creative, interesting spaces. Tile was just one way we made this home beautiful, functional and what our client asked for.

Continuing through the week and taking a closer look at fun, unique tile that we used in one of our client’s home. Today there are so many exciting things happening in the world of tile and the possibilities are endless.
The Guest Bathroom…
We came across this deco flowered wall tile from RBC Tile and Stoneand fell in love with its youthful energy. Creating an accent in the shower of 6 tiles placed vertically side by side gave us the focal point we were looking for. Since this tile is more expensive than most we used them strategically as we paired them with a the field tile with the same background.
The finished bathroom. Paired with a quarter sawn ash with a light stain, a terrazzo counter top made from recycled bottles and youthful, energetic purple this bathroom is fit for any guest young or old.
