The stream that bisects this family's front yard is as elegant and peaceful as any stream found naturally occurring. Designed to mimic a stream that might be found in the mountains around the home, small stones line the riverbed, while large stones are placed around the river to give it boundaries, but also to make it look more natural.
The homeowners love spending time in nature, so to personalize their space, they hoped to bring that natural feeling inside. The floor is made from decorative pebbles and is designed to look like a riverbed; that design is carried into the inlets in this shower. The tile walls of the bathroom compliment the colors in the floor and inlet as well.
The serenity of the riverbed flows into the shower area of this space. Designers created the floor of the shower to mimic the natural beauty of a stone riverbed, while the glass tile on the shower walls uses muted, earthy tones to to compliment the colors of the stone floor.
To help add dimension to these curved walls, designers added small shelves to help highlight the natural aspects of the space. Showcasing greenery, the shelves bring even more beauty to the riverbed-inspired spa bathroom.
The focal point of this contemporary living room is the fireplace at the front of the space. To make it stand out, designers covered the facade in rounded riverbed stones to create a smooth, unique look to complement the rest of the room's design.
The owners of this home love being outside, so they wanted to bring that love of nature and its beauty home with them. To make this happen, they have installed a bathroom with lots of natural features. The floor of the shower is crafted from decorative stones and is made to look like a natural stone river bed. The tile on the walls and the floor help to highlight the natural look of the space with complimentary colors. The final touch is the tub, which is tucked neatly below the window so that bathers can look out onto the scenery while still maintaining their privacy.
Designers paid a great deal of attention to the details of this space. With nature as their inspiration, the backsplash was made to look like a natural stone riverbed. The shelves were crafted out of natural wood, while the live edge brings the raw beauty of nature into the space.
The bathtub in this spa bathroom gets a little bit of privacy with a unique architectural feature. To shield bathers from the eyes of others, a horseshoe shaped wall conceals the modern bathtub that lies behind it. The wall is decorated to look like a natural stone riverbed with natural wood trim to make this space relaxing and inviting.
Tamara Hubinsky’s mission for this design was to create a hideout for the 9-year-old boy that would still accommodate him as he matured. The bookshelf stairs were custom designed to provide storage and utilize precious bedroom space. The stairs also add structure to the loft bed, which is important for kids’ rooms that are subject to lots of movement and heavy use. Small stair carpet treads (in a stone, riverbed pattern) add comfort and safety.
My textile collection, Studio NYC, evokes a naturally-inspired yet urban vibe that allows me to mix and match patterns like Current and Riverbed, shown here on the napkins and seat cushions that are as at home in the country as they are in this home in the city.
