A Tranquil Beach Inspired Bathroom

Since it's too cold to enjoy the beach, this bathroom seems like the perfect way to bring the beach inside. Inspired by its Laguna Beach locale, the placement of the turquoise glass tiles in a running bond mimics the movement of the ocean. The white tiles and cerused oak finish the space to create a bathroom perfect for escaping from winter.

Designed by Heidi Bonesteel and Michele Trout, the clean and fresh colors and textures of the bathroom make it feel like a spa. Heidi says that the secret to create that effect is the walk-in shower with no shower doors. One foot square tiles were used in the shower since they are quicker to install and easier to keep clean because there are fewer grout lines. The rain shower head just adds to the relax and unwind vibe of the whole space.
