This elegant bathroom designed by Soucie Horner is accomplished in so many ways; the deep-hued vanity with matching panels extending to the ceiling, the timeless style, and the book-matched marble tub surround. Book-matching is more commonly seen in wood veneers, but it is just as striking, if not more when done in stone! Book-matching is seen when successive pieces of stone are arranged side by side in such a way that the pieces “mirror” one another. This example above is not only book-matched but can be considered a double book-match, or a “reverse diamond”.
“…Such a universe is beyond inagination: a world without color would be a world without light, for light and color are inseparable”. Quote by E. Ambrose Webster: Early Modernist Painter
This is the universe of Cristina Rubinetterie, an Italian waterworks company flourishing with eye-popping designs. The Sandwich series offers a shower experience like no other, where you are bathed in soothing colored light as well as intense streams of water. The incredibly thin profile of the over-sized shower head (just 4 mm thickness) compresses the water out, so uniform pressure is a water-saving result. Oh and the red, green and blue lighting? Well I would paint and tile my bathroom black too if I had this showerhead as my muse.
Bandini is an opulent Italian company that carries many striking bath faucets and fittings. Take the Seta for example. The modern broken rectangle design is an elegant composition of chrome. The straight reserved lines of thise faucet has been coxed to bend with the water to the basin, and the operating lever has bent the opposite direction, giving the faucet a wonderful balance.
I just bought a pair of black crocodile print Ann Marino pumps, they are gorgeous! And now, not only can I implement this great shiny smooth texture in my wardrobe, but in home decor as well. The Crocodile Decor Tiles come in numerous colors like black, white, even purple. The large size of each porcelain ceramic tile allows the pattern of scales to appear extremely realistic. $75 each (and more for some colors).
Surrounding yourself with relaxation can definitely be achieved in this new bath tub from Kohler. This new addition to the Kohler line is a fabulous overachiever in many ways, not only does the extreme streamline shape look gloriously liquid, but the things it can do! -Built with two sounds systems, the VibrAcoustic bath resonates below the water and the other system heard out of the water.

With the Smarthydro Tub, simply call from your cell phone to activate your tub to fill to your desired temperature, water level, LED lighting conditions, and more.
Infinity pools appear to have no edge, just like the peak of a waterfall, and they have been dominating the backyards on the California coasts since O.C. aired it’s first glorious season, but why not carry this trend indoors? Overflowing tubs are filled to the rim and spill over to a trench below.
