A Stunning Modern Industrial Bathroom
I’ve worked with this client before, and as a single guy, he has the pleasure of choosing exactly the style he likes—which just so happens to be modern, industrial, and really chic.
For his master bathroom, I wanted to incorporate the contrasting natural elements common to this décor style, namely iron and wood. To achieve this, I created a stunning iron-looking grid on the sleek and spacious steam shower, which houses two shower heads, a quartz bench, and a cool shaving station: a little niche with a mirror inside. I chose a ceramic tile to line the shower since steam showers will not accommodate natural stone, but you’d never know it wasn’t marble unless you got really close. And, honestly, if you’re that close, you probably have soap in your eyes so who cares. Wash out your eyes!
To warm up the metal elements, we added a gorgeous, rich-looking wood vanity and topped it with black quartz that has abstract white veins running through it. Black-rimmed mirrors over the sinks are flanked by modern gold brass-and-white sconces, and the marble herringbone backsplash goes to the ceiling. Oh, the drama! I die.
I used the same gray tile on the floor here that I used in my client’s kitchen (because he just loves it that much) and added a simple gray-and-white woven rug to warm it up. Accents throughout the room are in gold brass and black iron, and modern art adds a distinct urban sophisticate vibe. A seriously cool, modern brass-and-white ceiling light fixture completes the look.
I also redid his walk-in closet with Katie Gerst, hanging a wood-framed sliding barn door, installing sleek black built-in drawers and cabinets, and adding more brass accents, a soft blue-gray rug, a leather chair, and brass hooks.
This master bathroom now simply exudes elegance, class, and sheer coolness.
