Bathroom decor: Boutique hotel-inspired master bathroom
When homeowners Mariana and Donato D’Amici approached The Cross
Design about designing their master bathroom, they already knew exactly what it should look like – namely a luxury boutique hotel they’d stayed in. “They wanted the space to feel high-end and luxurious but still very neutral and calm,” says Joanna.
To keep the foating vanity from looking flat and clinical, recessed panel drawers were chosen.
Glass-panelled doors lead out to a balcony and offer stunning views of Vancouver from the beautifully curved bathtub.

Focus on creating a light, open space with minimal finishings. “People get excited when they’re renovating bathrooms and want to use all these crazy finishes, which they think will create a really extravagant, beautiful space, but it’s actually the opposite,” says Joanna. “Keep your finishes to two or three and maintain a cohesive colour palette.” And, while the expanse of marble tile is the big statement here, you could also use a porcelain or ceramic tile to achieve the pared-back look.
