I’ve seen quite a few spa inspired bathrooms in our travels lately, both on land and online. Calm, serene, spa like bathrooms where you are actually meant to spend time in and relax are very popular.
New bathroom idea…
inspired by the spa style bathroom at Tower 23 Hotel in Pacific Beach, California, where we recently had a great weekend. The bathroom in our room was this gorgeous light blue color, highlighted with white fixtures and neutral tiles and floor. One of our platinum or silver decorated sinks would have looked great in there.
To create this spa style powder room idea…
We combined the Platinum Loops design on a contemporary vessel sink with a high gloss white vanity from Ikea for $75 (scratch and dent). The best thing about this vanity, besides the great look, are the big storage drawers. It’s the usual Ikea quality, really pretty darn good (but don’t move it around too much) and looks awesome. We had the glass top cut and sandblasted for $60 to cover the top of it and besides a perfect fit, it matches beautifully. The oval bevelled mirror is also from Ikea, about $15.
We love this flat open vessel sink, it’s a great space for decorating. Lots of our designs would look great on it, so far we have done a Florentine design on it in buscuit. We did a prior blog posting on that one, Red and Gold Florentine bathroom. Looks great although that sink takes forever to make!
This design is one of our more unique and unusual ones… it’s whimsical for sure but I think totally groovy too. It’s one I would put in my own home, and that’s saying a lot considering how many sinks I see on a daily basis!
The sink looks good with the clean contrast of the white fixture with the platinum design, the light blue walls, high gloss white vanity and neutral gray tile floor. This shot of the faucet isn’t the best, but if you look back to the top photo you can see it a little better. It’s a great vessel fucet and I would like to says thanks to Brian and our local Standard Plumbing Supply. They have switched from American Standard to Kohler and redid their whole showroom. We got a bunch of great sample sinks from them and they all came with the faucets. How awesome!!! Faucets are expensive and we are always on the lookout for them for our bathroom set-ups. This one, (I don’t know who made) is one of those vessel faucets that converts to two different heights and therefore twice as useful to us. It’s obviously excellent quality too, because it’s heavy.
This is the actual sink. Please check it out on the web site, Loose Loops. We need traffic on google and activity to the website, honestly it’s the main purpose of this blog, so please click now and “make it work’, like Tim Gunn would say. Thank You!
The Loose Loops design is available in gold and platinum and can be applied to any kind of sink or toilet. I would like to see it on a contemporary pedestal and toilet in my own powder room with chrome and mirrors, blue-gray walls, gray slate or something on the floor, it’s coming soon as soon as I get organized and do it.
