Zebra 'scape'

Digg this! Let me INTRODUCE a new segment to my blog: Readymade Design Scapes. My intention is to plan and artistically fashion 'scapes' which are conceptual rooms (bathroom, kitchen, etc ) that will be intimate, quirky, luxurious and offer products that you can find at your local plumbing, tile and lighting showrooms.

Series 1 will focus on edgy bathroom 'scapes'  highlighting tiles from Porcelanosa and fixtures and fittings from Alape and Duravit.

The Zebra 'scape' is a conceptual boutique powder room found in a contemporary residential home. The intention is to have a powerful feature wall as you walk into the room balanced with circular cove lighting above and modern fixtures, fittings and accessories.
Lets break it down:
1. The mosaiced focal wall is a powerful coordination of colors, textures and lost objects by artist Sophie Verrecchia.
2. Wall & Floor tiles: Porcelanosa's Crystal dark 13" X 40" porcelain tile. It looks like black glass.
3. The 41" Subzero chandilier puncturing thru the circular cove is made up of Bohemian crystals, fabric and metal. Its a WOW piece! It  provides ambient illumination and also has a center halogen down light to provide task or accent illumination. You can purchase it thru
4. Uttermost Kagemi 30" wide contemporary metal mirror combines the square and circle echoing the geometry of the space and circular cove in the ceiling. Can be purchased thru
5. Hansgrohe's Axor Stark X Faucet  is a wall mounted facuet, truly minimalistic in design.
6. Circa Alape white enameled vessel sink. It is a simple contemporary design.
7. Wall Hung Vanity called Mizu Bliss by Alape. It is made of timber veneer and polyurethaned a satin white or black finish. It features a contempoary design with an open storage area
8. Duravit's floating Second Floor toilet #220509.  How can you love a toilet? But I do! I have it in my Zen bathroom! (see Zen modern blog) The flushing system is hidden inside the wall. All you see is the toilet and a plate for flushing. Very cool!
