After building a nine-foot-long window in this Los Angeles bathroom to let in more light, "the last thing you want to do is cover it with mirrors," designer Kim Lewis says. She realized she could get away with just one mirror for both sinks if it could be made to move. So she found the kind of track normally used for barn doors and had a Restoration Hardware mirror modified to fit it.
Another Restoration Hardware mirror is propped against the wall next to the curvaceous tub. "I was drawn to that tub because it feels so organic," Lewis says. "The stone-like surface is warm to the touch, and it's so deep that you can sink into it." When she spotted those Plank porcelain tiles at Ann Sacks that look surprisingly like wood, she got excited because she could use them in the shower as well. "They keep the aesthetic going. I wanted warm, earthy elements that would bring the outside in and make the bathroom feel less sterile. After all, you should walk in here and feel like you can finally relax."
Designer Kim Lewis liked the clean geometric lines of the Purist faucet and used it with two Verticyl sinks, all by Kohler. They're set into a vanity topped with Silestone in Yukon Blanco, "a great material that's virtually bulletproof," she says. In order to make the exceptionally long vanity feel more like a piece of furniture, the front of it jogs in and out. Barn-door hardware for the mirror from Rustica Hardware. Reed Industrial swing-arm lights from Rejuvenation.
