An oval mirror and whimsical sconces adorn this bathroom like jewelry.

Interior design firm Riesco & Lapres used teak as a common theme throughout this Vancouver home. “What better wood than teak for a wet area?” points out Riesco. “It’s dense, durable and it looks fantastic!” The floor and walls are covered in white glass mosaics, and spots of gold accentuate the white nicely. Beyond the vanity, a wall of teak storage houses extra towels and everyday bathroom products.

Here, the mood is set by the blue glass chandelier and enhanced by an array of French objets, including the marble-topped chiffonier, statue and neoclassical urn positioned over the far mirror.

Homeownver Danielle Nicholas Bryk, of the W Network show Building Bryks, indulged herself in the ensuite with luxurious wall-to-wall honed travertine flooring and a floor-mounted tub filler. To balance the cost, she refurbished the home’s original clawfoot tub.
Black window frames add modern edge to a classic space.
A freestanding cast-iron tub is perfectly centred beneath a wide double window in this principal ensuite. The floors are heated Calacatta marble. An ornate 18th-century Italian stool looks spa-fresh covered in a striped seersucker fabric.
A spiraling Scandinavian chandelier and wood accents soften this modern space.
In this central park west apartment, New York designer Amy Lau covered the bathroom walls with highly polished metallic tiles in a linear pattern to visually expand the space and bring in reflective light.
