Go Au Naturel in the Bathroom
Using natural materials is all the rage in design. In bathrooms, for example, rocks and stones plucked from the great outdoors are finding their way underfoot and on the walls, and are being fashioned into dramatic tubs and sinks. Using river rocks, polished pebbles or fieldstone is a wonderful way to add texture and earthy color to your bath. And the choice can be practical, too: Pebble tiles can prevent slipping around a freestanding tub and provide a subtle massage to the soles of your feet.
This expansive glass-enclosed shower, complete with views of the Hollywood Hills, boasts a lovely dark-gray Jerusalem stone wall — and a boulder-like lava rock shower bench. The floor is limestone with minimal joint grouting, which makes the modern freestanding tub seem to float in the airy space.
This rustic backsplash, with its twin mirrored medicine cabinets, adds interest — and texture — to a Phoenix bathroom. It’s made of Stackstone, a mesh-backed quartzite that’s shown here in Golden Gate. The cabinets are alder with a clear finish, and they are topped with a Caesarstone quartz counter.
The showstopper in this spacious Hawaiian bathroom is the Stone Forest Oval Bathtub, carved out of a chunk of blue-gray granite — although the exquisite, storage-packed double vanity is envy inducing as well. Note the architect’s use of straw matting between the ceiling trusses — another nice touch!
