A City Respite at The Viceroy New York

The Perfect Bath

Of course I pay extra attention to the bath, and appreciate a room in which smart design has been employed so that the tub and shower fittings are intuitive and visually sublime. Certainly the visionaries behind The Viceroy New York have fulfilled these requirements and more with their choice of materials. Atlas fittings, fashioned a particularly superb bath environment. Admittedly, I am a complete snob about hotel rooms.

Thomas O’Brien’s Bath

The Perfect Bath

Occasionally, a bath is published that really captures the essence of the designer’s personal style and taste. I love this space as a complete bath experience; it is a thorough expression of the designers’ personal style and taste; it is warm, comfortable, formal in an informal way and completely charming. Active marble slabs, cut in an unusual dimension, clad the walls and the simple reveal of the slabs around the window is an elegant architectural gesture.

Art Deco in the Bath

The Perfect Bath

I know that many of you saw this bath featured in World of Interiors. The New York City apartment, a penthouse with 30 rooms on Gracie Square with views in several directions, was owned by Conde Nast. The design elements of the bath and the entire apartment fall well within the decorative arts framework made popular in the 1920s and 1930s in France. I would be remiss if I did not comment on this completely original Art Deco design: it is perfection.

I love New York so much it hurts sometimes; the Delancy Street "Low Line". A couple of years ago, an abandoned, elevated railway was turned into New Yorks now-legendary High Line. Its going to be amazing and if any city in the world can pull this off, New Yorks definitely the one. No where else in the world can mount projects on the scale New York can and nowhere else on earth can channel ambition and vision the way New York does so regularly.

Dark Grout

The Perfect Bath

Peter Sallick thought the columns in our 58th Street showroom should look like old New York, referencing the subways as an example. It made the columns, which could easily have been a disaster, more integrated in to our design process as well as a focal part of the architecture. Since then, we have used it in our kitchen and bath displays to great affect. I remember the first time we used dark grout as a design statement at Waterworks.

We call that our ‘old New York’ look. I’ve chosen some other tile colors to illustrate the grout color conundrum.The grid, texture and architecture all contribute to the decision about grout color. The overall success of any project lies in the details. And, one of the details that can most easily derail a tile installation is the choice of grout color. For some reason, the grout color selection is often left to the last minute.
