This bathroom by Savena Doychinov won an NKBA Award for Medium Bath - Honorable Mention.
A vibrant Haitian painting inspired the update of a bland boys’ bathroom in a traditional Arlington, Virginia, home. Savena Doychinov of Design Studio International Kitchen & Bath decided to create a beach-like environment similar to the tropical scene depicted in the painting.
She covered a column with aqua glass tile to evoke the Caribbean Sea, and added an eco-resin panel embedded with reeds to separate the toilet from the tub. Meanwhile, randomly cut Turkish limestone tiles along the wall of the tub suggest sand dunes.
A glass mosaic backsplash and tangerine-colored pendants that hang like miniature suns above the double vanity lend energy to the room.
