Steal This Look: Ace Hotel in LA Bathroom

Issue 2 · Western Edition · January 14, 2014

Whenever a new Ace Hotel opens, we always seem to gravitate to the bathroom design. The just-finished Ace in LA, with interiors by Commune, is no exception. We'd happily copy the bathrooms in our own homes. You, too? Here's how:

Photos by Spencer Lowell for the Ace Hotel.

Ace Hotel Los Angeles Bathroom/Remodelista

Above: The black and white palette of the bath is reminiscent of the early days of cinema (note the thumbnail photo of Louise Brooks reflected in the mirror).

Ace Hotel Los Angeles Steal This Look/Remodelista

Above: Commune used metal factory windows to delineate the bathrooms from the bedrooms; for inspiration, see 10 Glamorous Baths, Metal Factory Window Edition.

Ace Hotel Bathroom Los Angeles/Remodelista

Above: Exposed concrete walls keep the space from looking too "done." And note the sliding barn door as room divider; for ideas, go to Architectural Elements: Sliding Barn Doors.

Bradley Wall Sconce Robert Abbey/Remodelista

Above: The Robert Abbey Bradley Bronze Wall Sconce measures 15.25 inches wide and can be hung vertically or horizontally; $297.91 from Lamps Plus.

Happy D Sink Duravit/Remodelista

Above: Duravit's Happy D Washbasin Console is a modern classic; $522.90 from Quality Bath.

Tara Dornbracht Black Faucet/Remodelista

Above: Dornbracht's Wall-Mounted Basin Mixer in matte black is $1,760 from Decorative Plumbing. Update: A reader clued us in to a lower-priced option: California Faucet's Tiburon Vessel Lavatory Wall Faucet, $573 at Quality Bath (it's available in an array of finishes, including matte black).

Schoolhouse Electric Pushbutton Light Switch/Remodelista

Above L: The Schoolhouse Electric Push Button One Gang Coverplate is $18. Above R: The Schoolhouse Electric push button Three-Way Dimmer Switch is $49.

Pearl Soap Ace Hotel/Remodelista

Above: Pearl+ Detox Soaps, handmade in Portland, OR, contain crushed natural pearl, charcoal powder, and a blend of oils; a pair of Large Peal+ Detox Soap Bars is $12; a set of four Small Peal+ Detox Soap Bars is also $12.

Michael Verheyden Niez Black Leather Tissue Box/Remodelista

Above: The Niez Tissue Box Cover by Michael Verheyden is made of hand-sewn saddle leather (also available in white); CA $160 at Espace D.

Rudys Barbershop Soap Trio/Remodelista

Above: Simplify your bathing routing with a trio of products developed for Davines for Rudy's Barbershop: a 16 oz bottle of #1 Shampoo is $20, a 16 oz bottle of #2 Conditioner is $24, and a 16 oz bottle of #3 Body Wash is $20. Looking for a wall-mounted bottle caddy for your shower (Atelier Ace designed the one shown above and had it fabricated by Amuneal in Philadelphia)? Consider a Soap & Lotion Caddy ($15.95) from Williams-Sonoma.

Louise Brooks Tile Coaster/Remodelista

Above: Did you notice the thumbnail photo of Louise Brooks reflected in the bath mirror? For something similar, consider the porcelain Louise Brooks Tile Coaster; $12.50 from Cafe Presse.
