This attic bathroom has all the graphic drama of an M.S. Escher print, thanks to its geometric black-and-white tile floor. To keep the focus on that pattern, the rest of the room is simple: white backsplash, round mirror and a floating wood vanity.
Pull up a high-back leather barstool to the white, marble island in this this modern, geometric kitchen. The small space features grand designs as seen from the countertop-to-ceiling patterned tile backsplash to the gray cabinetry and herringbone-patterned wooden pantry drawer.
A geometric copper pedestal sink sits beneath a copper-framed oval mirror in this stunning powder room. The eye-catching flooring in this room is made of different-colored tiles laid in a mosaic pattern.
Pattern mixing is a designer's trick for bringing motion and depth into a space. From the overscaled, lattice-like shape of the FLOR tiles to the diamond stripes of the duvet cover to the geometric print of the throw pillows, pattern is used to draw the eye up from the ground, onto the bed and up to the abstract art.
Geometric black, brown and white penny tile covers one wall in a bathroom, while a rectangular mirror hangs on an adjoining wall. The mirror reflects the tile pattern, creating an optical illusion on that wall of the tile.
Tiles embossed in an intricate, geometric vine pattern lend visual texture to this kitchen backsplash. A stainless steel pot filler cuts down on trips to the sink and complements the stainless range hood.
If you like the idea of a patterned backsplash that won’t go out of style, consider a simple geometric pattern: stripes, diamonds or zigzags, for example. To create this chevron effect, designer Kelli Kaufer used hand-cut stained glass. She bought three different colors, cut them into 1-inch wide by 3-inch long angled pieces, and applied to the wall using a double-sided sticky mat. Then, she grouted with a non-sanded grout. “This backsplash can work with many different styles,” says Kaufer. “Depending on the color of the glass pieces, you can either go bold, creating a hip, modern look, or muted, for a classic, sophisticated style.”
Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
With one wall composed of black, oversized octagonal tile, another wall with an organic freeform tile design and a floor with patterned marble tile, this small and modern bathroom is a treat for the eyes. A floating vanity and modern wall-mounted toilet echo the geometric lines of the tile. Brass accents give the room a little bit of glam.
This remodel was in conjunction with a few other projects in one residence, all in preparation for the arrival of a new baby.
The shower stayed in the same place, although the plumbing was moved. The toilet was moved to the opposite wall, and the sink was moved to the center of the bathroom. A freestanding tub was then installed on the opposite wall from the shower. Classic white subway tile on the shower walls and tub wall create a clean backdrop for the geometric pattern cement floor tiles.
A sharp herringbone-patterned tile wall contrasts with soft veining in the marble trough sink in the master bathroom at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Designer Tineke Triggs selected elegant accents to reflect the fashion model's timeless glamour and introduced geometric designs inspired by the musician's Ziggy Stardust persona.
Graphic, geometric patterned floor tile serves as the focal point and color palette inspiration for this bathroom. Wooden, flat panel vanity drawers bring a natural, warm element to the black and white space. Since an octagonal shower window is the only source of natural light, white walls and subway tile help brighten the room.
