Kitchen and Bath: Climbing the WallsAuthor:Lindsey Shook
When it comes to bath design, we are seeing what you could call a sprawling trend. Designers and architects are taking floor tile and extending it up one wall to create an accent.
In a powder room, architect Edward Ogosta uses the same tile on the floor and one wall to make a statement.
The look makes a big and unified statement, as seen in these two examples. The first is from Los Angeles architect Edward Ogosta (Edward Ogosta Architecture). When remodeling a mid-century home in Manhattan Beach, Ogosta decided to employ the technique in a powder room using Heath Tile. “The company has been around for a while and can be considered a California institution,” Ogosta says. “I mixed their Modern Blue field tile in two sizes to create a pattern that I then used on the floor and one wall, and it created a fresh look.” You can see the whole project here.
Designer Holly Hollenbeck uses a unified floor and wall tile for a punch of color and pattern.
We first spotted the trend in a home we recently published by San Francisco interior designer Holly Hollenbeck (HSH Interiors). The designer made her own classic Edwardian house shine by using some highly original modern moves—including this tile strategy. She applied a geometic tile to the floor and the wall behind the vanity for a look we won’t soon forget.
