DESIGNER: UL­RICH, RIDGEWOOD PHOTOGRAPHY COUR­TESY OF

Ev­ery day feels like a day in a trop­i­cal par­adise in this Up­per Sad­dle River bath­room that chan­nels the blue-hued beauty of the Caribbean to in­fuse it with spa-like tran­quil­ity. Ul­rich designer Aparna Vi­jayan used faux wood porce­lain tiles on the bath­room floor to repli­cate the look of a wood deck along a body of wa­ter, adding blue glass tiles in a wave pat­tern in and around the shower and tub to mimic wa­ter. A cus­tom glass thresh­old into the shower helps keep the con­ti­nu­ity of the blue, while the free­stand­ing tub was po­si­tioned to make it ap­pear as though it is float­ing on wa­ter. To fur­ther re­in­force the bath­room’s trop­i­cal sen­si­bil­ity, the designer added a planter – com­plete with an in­te­grated drainage sys­tem – that dou­bles as a clever pri­vacy bar­rier for the toi­let. The bath­room’s play­ful com­bi­na­tion of deep brown Brookhaven by Wood-Mode stained maple cab­i­netry, white Cae­sar­stone, shim­mery blue tiles, and living plant ma­te­rial cre­ate a bliss­ful back­drop for the bath­room’s spa-style fea­tures, in­clud­ing a steam shower, van­ity-to-ceil­ing mir­ror and deep soak­ing tub. Mod­ern pol­ished chrome fix­tures and a bas­ket over­flow­ing with plush white tow­els add the fin­ish­ing touch.
