Gold 40-139 Square Feet: Walnut Lily

Why the judges love it: The designers really took house guests into consideration with all of the added touches. The tile work is phenomenal, and the grout color really makes the blue pop.

Designer Walnut Lily took on the challenge of creating a luxurious guest bath experience for their clients. The homeowners’ vision was to blend a moody, masculine vibe with a warm and welcoming feel in just under 100 square feet. The bathroom door is directly across from the lower-level entrance, so the bathroom needed to look like a work of art instead of a bathroom. The dramatic, rich blue tile on the shower wall is a show stopper. The frameless glass door and golden grout showcase the herringbone pattern of the tile and complement the brushed gold hardware. The designer continued the herringbone tile on the 9’ high wall behind the vanity, which features a matte gold framed mirror with a dimmable light and defogger. The handsome vanity is finished in an antique gray wood tone and has clean lines and brass trim. The vanity also features a built-in charging station, which is perfect for party guests. A privacy niche for the toilet area displays artwork from a local artist.
