Sicis Mosaic Bath
All Photography by: David Young-Wolff
One of my favorite tubs is this infinity tub from Kohler,
it is simply spectacular. What you can't see from this picture is that it has chroma-therapy ( meaning, there are light bulbs in the tub that change color , you can check out my Blog for that video here.
Then there's the Purist
ceiling tub spout , which fills the tub from up above.
The mosaic tile I selected for this bath is from Sicis. It is a blend of blue, white, 24K gold, copper, and Platinum mosaic tiles. The shimmer and sparkle of this bathroom is complemented by the honed limestone floors and the warm Quarter-Sawn Walnut wood vanity.
Funny, but true, all projects have surprises.....and I will never forget this one.
So the new bathroom is designed , they demo the existing , construction starts , plumbing, lighting, all rough is set, the usual headaches here and there, tile is layed, vanity goes in, all is working out nicely. Then , when we go to order mirror, we realize that the LARGE almost 9 foot by 5 foot will not fit in the elevator, NOR will it fit up the stairs , unless there is a seam or a couple of seams in the mirror.
Well, that wasn't in my plan and I did not want to see ANY seams. I am typically not a stubborn designer, but I just couldn't have seams. So Sam the Contractor and I put our heads together for days.....and finally the suggestion was made that we crane it up thru the alley onto the balcony and into the room. I wasn't there when it was brought up , so I am not sure exactly how it all went down, but Thank goodness for contractors who are willing to TRY ! The result, is this bathroom mirror without Seams! Hooray !
This wonderful project here is the result of a group collaboration.
Thank you so much to everyone involved.
Special thanks to our client who allowed us to be so creative with this space. It was a pleasure.
