I still haven’t remodeled the master shower in my investment property yet, it’s one of the last remaining projects to do before selling. While looking for inspiration, I stumbled across showers that go beyond one color subway tile and incorporate stripes with tile installed in both basic and creative ways.
It’s a universal design truth: stripes are classic and never go out of style. I’ve seen my share of showers with a singular accent stripe of tile, however these examples show stripes symmetrically balanced throughout the space.
Horizontal stripes widen, while vertical stripes elongate. These showers take on a variety of personalities, from happy to dramatic depending on the color and size of tile used. Her are examples of basic stripes on the wall, but also some creative applications on the floors and walls beyond the shower.
I was in Paris during the summer of 2016, and I spent an afternoon strolling the streets of Montmartre, a district famous for its art shops. That day, one particular painting caught my eye, it was a small yet bright pastel abstract painting that I fell in love with at first sight. Art is something I always look for when I travel, it’s the best kind of souvenir. I bought that little painting that day and I look at it every day where it sits on the shelf in my home office.
I collect landscapes and charcoal illustrations, but abstract art I find most appealing and I’ve collected several of them as well. The medley of colors and brushstrokes convey a different feeling depending on the piece: moody, cheerful, ethereal, etc. If you also collect abstract works, you should know about these talented artists.
