Shower as Showcase: Gaudi-Inspired Tile by David Howell Design

Even at a distant glance, this bathroom is striking––intricately carved French doors with brass hardware opens to a contemporary freestanding tub against a polished dividing wall, all sandwiched between marble floors and a high-gloss ceiling.  But there is much more to this space than the entry view allows...

Just around the corner, an eye-popping mural in the walk-in shower changes the entire energy of the space. The homeowners, a young couple in Tribeca with two children, were eager for the team at David Howell Design to incorporate orange artwork and accents throughout their property. And the design firm certainly delivered.  

"We were loving the Gaudi influence when we started looking at tiles, but we certainly wanted to include the midcentury orange that the family loves," says Steffani Aarons, principal designer at DHD. "Like a Gaudi, the shower has no right angles. It’s curvy, sensual, and soft."

Adds Aarons: "The walls blend seamlessly into the floor and the ceiling. It’s a very sculptural installation, and the family loves waking up to this view every day."
