Tranquil Turquoise Bath

glazed turquoise tile shower guest bathroom by Steven GambrelA soft color scheme and classic design create a timeless guest bath.

According to Benjamin Franklin “guest, like fish, begin to smell after three days.”  Too bad Ben didn’t have a bathroom as nice as designer Steven Gambrel and partner Chris Connor for his guest to wash away the stench.  Bathed in turquoise hues, this guest house space pampers lucky invitees.  The glass shelf over a stone topped washstand provides an extra landing zone for toiletries and accessories.  Instant character is added with the unique light fixture selections.  Their circular shapes offset an otherwise linear space.  Custom glazed tiles cover the shower walls and ceiling – its large window offers a stunning view of Sag Harbor Cove.  Waterworks fittings include the sink faucet and exposed shower set with a rainfall showerhead.  A Pullman soap dish from Urban Archaeology replaces the now common built-in niche.  Avoiding a modern look, the shower glass walls are framed and a transom over the door adds even more vintage charm.  The soft turquoise color envelopes the room in the form of painted wood paneling.  Their guests may never want to leave.
