Overall, the decor of the bathroom space has a warm, comfortable feel, enhanced with ample natural light, neutral tones on the walls and high ceilings. The use of travertine serves to lend an air of sophistication, while still maintaining the overall design theme. â€œTravertine is a timeless material and has a classic and elegant feeling,â€ said Canestrelli.
The hexagon-shaped tiles of Castello travertine were used to create the field, and they measure 20 inches in size. The stone features a warm, taupe color, and they were utilized with a MonastereTM finish - which the designer describes as a brushed finish - adding to the Old World charm of the room. The material was supplied by Hexstone TM Unique Surfaces of Phoenix, AZ.
A combination of various-sized travertine tiles and dark accent bands was used for the vertical surfaces, such as the tub surround and shower. At the tub, smaller-format Castello travertine tiles were used as 8-inch squares, 6-inch hexagon tiles and rectangular â€œbricks,â€ set off by small accent strips.
Even elements such as the vanity top utilize natural stone in a tile application as opposed to slabs. At the vanity, the design uses large-format travertine tiles with a brushed finish, and hexagon tiles form the backsplash.
