Negar Reihani of Space Harmony makes a small space special using a pretty penny tile.
Despite the major renovation that this Vancouver character home was slated to go through, knocking down the bathroom walls was a structural no-go. So Negar Reihani, founder and principal designer at Space Harmony, instead focused on making the original square footage feel larger. She and her team chose a vintage-vibed penny tile as a nod to the home’s history, and extended the dreamy blue material all the way up to emphasize the bathroom’s sloped ceiling.
An all-glass shower and slender pedestal vanities ensure that the view is uninterrupted. “The material lets the eyes roam around and allows the room itself to talk, not the finishes,” says Reihani. But this space still offers plenty of smart storage: recessed medicine cabinets hide behind the vanity mirrors and wall-to-wall cabinets are nestled in the short end of the slope.
