Design Diary: Come to My Garden

It is so rare to have an apartment in New York like this one. The 15-foot-high ceilings make it feel like a loft, but the garden makes it feel like a house.

We spent yesterday unpacking and laying out the tile for the master bath walls. We chose Ocean Beige, a linear vein cut travertine field tile, honed and filled, that reveals the natural sedimentary layers visible in the quarry face. It’s from Artistic Tile. My salesperson at their West 21st Street showroom is Janet McHugh, the best tile salesperson I’ve ever had.

The pattern makes it feel like a desertscape, which is perfect for this client because she splits her year between New York and Scottsdale. It was hard to tell what it looked like in the apartment, so I had them lay out the entire bath in the garden!

The client came over and approved it. The tile should all be installed by the end of tomorrow. More to come . . . .

Very desert-like
