Juicy color orange bath faucets and green tile get married in a memorable bathroom.
An orange and green designer bath? Sure, it’s a bit “high school colors gone custom” but anyone who wants to have juicy color in their at-home spa would have difficulty topping the combination Texas designer Mary Anne Smiley used here. Vola plumbing fixtures make the difference in the bath because they provide the accent color used for the base of the vanity and the Asian style curved storage shelf. Those elements kick off the high-impact look but notice: the green penny round floor tile is inset with orange dots and orange is also used to highlight the inside of the storage niche on the bathtub wall. A close look at the shield- shaped mirror over the vanity yields an interesting fact: the bath wall opposite the vanity is covered with dimensional tile similar to the Andy Blick Discus tile in the Dimensional Tile Kitchen.
Bathroom faucets by the Danish company Vola aren’t easy to find. Here is a display at the Hastings Bath and Tile showroom in Manhattan (don’t you love the view?), where I dropped by. Vola’s tubular style – originally designed by Arne Jacobsen in the 1960s — caters to modernist bathroom-fixture taste. While the brand may be less well known to the public than others, Jacobsen’s simple forms are easily recognized especially in any of their 16 special-order colors. Vola is one of the few lines that provide color for kitchen and bathroom faucets.
Green glass mosaic in two different shapes are used to define the tub surround and floors white the white walls and bath fixtures add balance. A close up of the tub and soap niche shows some fun color details including orange penny round tiles in the niche.
