Modern Space With a Coastal View

This remodeled bathroom in Mukilteo, Washington, shows how a sleek, modern, spa-like space needn’t be overwhelmingly white. Designer Kristine Tyler of Tree Frog Design took a cramped, dated master bathroom and created a whole new look, with a gray, white and blue color scheme, a wet room with frameless glass, a sculptural freestanding soaking tub and an eye-catching chandelier. “I came in and took measurements, did a case study of the space and asked, ‘How do we make this a more functional space?’ ” Tyler says.

Tyler used dark and light gray large-format tile across the walls and floors. She persuaded the homeowners not to cut off the tile on the back wall at the shower and instead to extend it across the entire wall. “It makes the space feel more expansive. In the ‘before’ picture you notice that the tiles are only encompassing the shower, and it divides up the room and makes the space feel more choppy,” she says.

Tyler stopped by the site one day during the renovation and made sure the tile was installed up to the ceiling peak in the shower area. “The tile installer mentioned that they were planning on capping it off at 84 inches. The homeowner met me there and I encouraged them to extend the tile all the way up, so the eye isn’t drawn to the transition,” she says.

After: A soaking tub was on the homeowners’ wish list, so Tyler sourced this sculptural beauty, along with an elegant floor-mounted tub filler. The team also installed a wall-mounted towel warmer. A view of Puget Sound through the window is an added bathing treat.

The chrome-finish tub filler with hand shower adds an architectural element to complement the sculptural curves of the tub.

The unique spiral pendant light makes a striking statement above the tub. The swirling fixture uses an integrated LED bulb that projects light inward for a soft glow.

Before: The previous bathroom was functional but a bit cramped and needed refreshing. “Mostly they were interested in turning a dated bathroom with lots of beige into a sleek, contemporary bathroom to suit their taste,” Tyler says.

After: The team removed the enclosed shower and replaced the original cherry vanity with a sleek new floating version to completely transform the space. Tyler replaced the long mirror with vibrant blue tiles in random lengths on the vanity wall to enliven the space with color.

“The textured look behind the glass and the different sizes add an interesting texture to the backsplash,” she
