Creating Textural Harmony in a Space

01 Aug, 2023 | Designer Spotlight |

For this complete bathroom makeover, Coton House designed a space that was reminiscent of their client’s European travels. In those travels, they loved the richness and relaxation those bathrooms offered. To evoke those feelings, they set out to create a soothing spa-like oasis.

To achieve this serenity, the incorporation of natural materials such as beautifully veined porcelain and wood-looking tile was used to tie everything together. The flooring was adorned with beautiful, warm-toned textured tile, creating a soft foundation for the space.

A neutral color palette was chosen to evoke a sense of calmness. Soft shades of beige and gray were applied to the walls and cabinetry, allowing the natural elements to take center stage. The serene color scheme created a soothing backdrop for relaxation.

To enhance the spa-like ambiance, the team maximized natural light while ensuring privacy by adding a textural sheer curtain with an interesting trim to maintain privacy while creating a tranquil atmosphere..

Thoughtful lighting played a crucial role in setting the mood. Dimmable fixtures were incorporated, allowing for a customizable ambiance. Soft, warm lighting options, such as wall sconces and recessed lighting, illuminated the space, creating a calming and inviting environment. The abaca fiber-tiered chandelier above the tub makes quite the statement. These textures and the gold and champagne finishes added a bit of glam to the space, as well.

The updated primary bathroom design is tied together with the beautiful Francini countertops. Countertop selections are important when designing a space because you want to make sure that it is not only beautiful but matches the level of durability needed in the space. The veining in the porcelain slab has both warm and cool tones that compliment the other material used in the space. Porcelain is a wonderful material to specify due to its strength, lightweight, and significant stress resistance.
