We took the classic black and white bathroom and gave it a modern interior design twist.
The original bathroom in this 1929 home located in southeast Denver, was already black and white but in need of an update. The client wanted to keep a traditional look and add a contemporary twist.
The bathtub and the sink are period-correct since they are original to the house. The antique tub was re-porcelained to restore areas that had chips and scratches. The shower was widened by six inches to make it more spacious.
The tile work in this bathroom is really quite extraordinary. Hand painted tiles make up the border surrounding the tub. Tiles in the arch above the tub were hand cut for a flawless fit. The floor tile was updated to a large basket weave pattern. While a basket weave pattern is traditional, the large size of the pattern gives it a contemporary lift.
You can see why this bathroom is award-winning, first place in the 2013 National Kitchen and Bath Competition for the Rocky Mountain Region in the Large Bathroom category.
