Beautiful Blue Bath

The perfect palette of cool Caribbean colors was the key to making the bathroom the fresh, clean oasis the owners had always wanted.

Floating Vanity

A floating vanity made of bamboo is just one of the eco-friendly elements Catherine incorporated in the environmentally conscious space.

Glass Act

Above the floating bamboo vanity sits a radiant blue countertop made from recycled glass, a detail that is both eco-friendly and complementary to the walls' stunning blue hue.

Toasty Towels

Guests get the special treatment in this high-tech bathroom, which features its own wall-mounted heated towel rack.

Two Heads Are Better Than One

Two shower heads -- one traditional and one handheld -- make the most of the contemporary bath/shower combo. Warm gray tiles line the walls and lend a neutral, relaxing hue to the predominantly blue space.

Shower Storage

Made from leftover pieces from the tub deck and the recycled glass countertop, the colorful shower niche is the perfect accessory to the Caribbean blue room.
