Bathroom at a Glance

Size: 52 square feet (4.8 square meters)
Designer: Catherine Schmidt ofModel Remodel
A happy yellow-and-blue color palette energizes the once-dark bathroom. The homeowners cut out nautical images from posters, wallpaper and online art, then pasted them together for a mood board. Artist David Heck used this for a springboard to paint the nautical mural on the right.
Schmidt played with changing the directions of the yellow tiles to add dimension and an almost wavelike feel.
