A sense of simple, light-filled luxury was created in this guest bathroom remodel by harmonizing tranquil colors, the visuals of flowing waterfalls, and the serenity of clean, Asian-inspired lines.
Our team selected an innovative Shoji screen-style door that opens in three widths for varying degrees of privacy. This creative solution makes it possible for one guest to use the shower or toilet while another uses the sink.
Throughout the room, simple horizontal lines subtly express an Asian influence. Colors are muted and calm in earth tones of sage and brown. Streamlined bamboo cabinetry with simple horizontal fixtures provides organized storage with an uncluttered effect. The selection of floating cabinetry and the decision to set the mirror just slightly back from the backsplash contribute to a feeling of openness in the room.
A quartet of lights at the vanity was selected for its resemblance to a string of paper lanterns. The sink faucets are designed to flow like delicate waterfalls, further emphasizing the theme of calm simplicity.

In the shower, the waterfall theme is repeated in the niche of glass tile and the flowing lines of tile on the floor. The niche was deliberately designed to evoke a window with an extra wide span to expand the space visually. The tile was selected in a slightly uneven composition to give the sense of water and movement.
The shower’s linear tile insets are repeated into the rest of the room, establishing a clean, sophisticated sense of continuity. The showerhead flows from a linear position, which aligns with the room’s aesthetic while also providing a powerful spray. A rustic ladder serving as a towel rack is a functional piece of art.
This peaceful oasis now communicates our clients’ passion for Asian themes while providing their guests with a calm, private space for relaxation and reinvigoration.
