Clean lines and monochromatic design create a space to showcase a Turkish mosaic.
An antique Turkish mosaic stone horse became the highly artistic theme for a lovely and feature-packed penthouse bathroom by Chicago designer John Robert Wiltgen. Mosaics often appeared on old Roman bath walls and it’s great to see the idea updated. Installing the piece in a recessed niche over the tub, opposite the entrance, makes it the focal point and color keynote for the creamy bathroom stone walls, floor and cabinetry.
Placing the tub and shower adjacent to each other in a glass-enclosed, well-lit “wet suite” is a handsome bath design strategy. In theory, that arrangement traps tub and shower steam, keeping it away from the mirrors and reducing the general humidity. Our issues around these arrangements relate to usage and maintenance: when such a shower is used normally, what’s the collateral wet-down on the tub? Does that present the fastidious home owner (or the cleaner) with a bath tub to dry as well as a daily squeegee task? Or, given enough space, would such an arrangement simply be more efficient?
Especially noteworthy, too, is the configuration of the double vanity where a handy stack of drawers is set in between the sinks and deep toe-kick drawers ensure that not an inch of storage is lost. A mirrored wall over the vanity helps maximize the space and handsome Deco-style sconces provide much needed front grooming light.
