Cigar Lounge-Inspired Bath
KSI Kitchen & Bath, Birmingham, MI
For this ensuite primary bath, designer Christina Fukumoto’s client drew inspiration from dark, moody spaces reminiscent of a cigar lounge or country club. To achieve this aesthetic, she incorporated warm wall paneling from Dura Supreme Cabinetry in quartersawn oak with a navy blue vanity, white marble countertop and Pub House Collection decorative hardware from Schaub & Co.
With such a narrow room requiring a likewise narrow (custom depth) vanity cabinet, the designer opted for a wall-mount faucet to save on counter space. Due to issues with a wall pipe and the backsplash, the faucet was mounted higher than originally designed, which resulted in a distinctive look. A very narrow shower showcases a neutral tile behind glass with Kohler Purist showerhead.
Thoughtful details in the bath include an accent tile ‘rug’ that was created with Liaison Mulholland Small in Silver Blend Honed by Kelly Wearstler for Ann Sacks. The same tile is repeated in the shower niche. Scalloped ends on the backsplash lend an air of sophistication.
