Designer Ami McKay transforms a Vancouver bathroom into a spa-like retreat with stunning green tiles and clever spatial design.
“One side is the audience, the other side is the stage,” says Ami McKay with a laugh. The principal designer at Pure Design is referring to this stunning, green-tiled bathroom in Vancouver’s Douglas Park neighbourhood: the small step up to the bathtub, coupled with a gorgeous tile that extends past the vaulted ceiling, is inarguably eye-catching. “We tend to paint our ceilings white, but this creates intimacy,” says the designer. “It’s all about colour blocking with simple materials.” That said, the “audience” side of the bathroom works hard, too: a mirrored medicine cabinet provides generous storage, and white oak cabinetry brings an organic, natural element to the space.
