Violet Bath Design in San Mateo - Before and Afters

Here's a project I recently wrapped up in San Mateo. My clients were so much fun to work with, and weren't afraid to embrace color....all...the...way!

Here's what we started with:

Fine. Nothing wrong with this bathroom, except that it wasn't quite finished.

But my clients were craving color. And drama, and sophistication. So, violet stepped in and helped us out.

Big change, right?

My client fell in love with this glass mosaic tile by Sicis. And from there we rode the violet wave, adding field tile by Sonoma Tilemakers in India Ink and Benjamin Moore's luscious Mulberry Wine.

Tub/shower before - tiles were painted white. 
Tub/shower after
We moved the niche a bit higher up the wall and filled it with the mosaic tiles.
We also ran the mosaics all the way to the ceiling behind the vanity. 
This was such a fun project to work on because a) my clients were super cool and b) they weren't afraid of color. And - guess what? They LOVE their new bath. No fear = great reward.

Have you ever taken a no-fear approach to a project?
