In Living Color

Bold hues create drama in a modern master bath


When designing a bedroom-and-bath addition to her mid-century home in Silver Spring, architect Janet Bloomberg of KUBE architecture envisioned a “collage” effect. To accomplish this, she combined swaths of bold color, dominated by a 3D ceramic tile in vibrant orange that contributes a sculptural feel. “The brightly colored Italian tile is the star of this bathroom,” Bloomberg says.

Black cabinets and shelves frame sections of large-format, blue-green ceramic tile, providing storage and handy surfaces. The sloped, black-painted ceiling is a backdrop to the brightly hued walls.

Frosted glass encloses the WC, while the open walk-in shower conveys the feel of an outdoor space via an exterior wall of frosted glass and its own clear-glass ceiling.
