There’s no question that the striking porcelain tile in this Saskatoon bathroom—the Floor Gres collection in Pebble from Stone Tile—is a showstopper. It’s highly patterned without overwhelming the space, and that’s thanks to a few smart design tricks from the team at Atmosphere Interior Design.

The Victoria and Albert bath is a solid-surface tub that’s high-gloss on the inside and matte black on the exterior, but can be ordered in just about any colour. The volcanic limestone construction really holds heat well, too—perfect for a night in at the home spa. Photo: Eymeric Widling

The room is warmed up with accents of richly stained wood—the white oak screen behind the tub, the wenge millwork on the vanity—and, on either side of the excellently deep soaker tub, a pair of charcoal grey smoked-glass doors bring a hotel spa vibe. “Originally the plans had one door going into the water closet on the right side of the tub,” says Atmosphere’s Curtis Elmy. “But we pushed to get matching glass doors on either side to play up the symmetry. The dark grey tinted glass offers privacy, but also brings a moodiness to the room we really wanted.”

Wenge works well in black and white bathrooms because of its naturally dark colour, and because the wood has a tight vertical grain with natural flecks of black within it. Photo: Eymeric Widling
