We have been working on a bathroom design over the past couple weeks. Our inspiration for the tile detail is the classic Gucci horsebit design. Modern chocolate Glow tile with calcutta marble, espresso woods and modern fixtures in bronze set against the gray white stone. When we design, as I have often described, we begin with identifying a mood we want to create. Then, once we have agreed on a direction, Nancy and I continue to build on that concept pulling together images that express that mood. European, tailored, sleek, masculine, modern, luxury... Images then come to mind, a vintage black Italian sports car, a classic Gucci loafer, Armani's modern style and moody gray color palette... Here is a piece of our "look book" for this bathroom renovation.
