Bathroom decor: Stylishly sleek
A flat-front vanity in light grey is a simple and understated piece that allows the gorgeous custom horn handles to steal the spotlight. Since there wasn’t enough space for double sinks, decorator Alykhan Velji used this extra-wide shallow sink. A counter-to-ceiling mirror acts as a backsplash while visually expanding the small space and keeping the look clean and streamlined.
Natural horn handles
Picking up on the colour and pattern of the travertine, these natural horn handles were a splurge item that bring a special detail to the otherwise very simple vanity.
The squared-off faucet design and cross-shaped handles are a modern take on the traditional faucet shape.
Homeowner Aaron Smith’s background in geological engineering drew him to the travertine slabs that Alykhan used as a feature wall in the shower. The 12-by-36-inch tiles add depth to the space, and their horizontal lines help make the bathroom appear wider.
Beautifully simple shower fixtures let natural stone remain the focal point of the room. The ceiling and side walls in the shower are a 12-by-24-inch ceramic tile in a dark grey that was pulled directly from the colouring of the travertine. The same material that was used on the ceiling and side walls covers the shower floor but in a small square pattern.
A shiny turned side table complements the shower fixtures and acts as a handy spot to hold bathroom essentials.
