Steal This Look: Soho House Berlin Bathroom

Issue 18 · Berlin Bound · May 5, 2015

Soho House is situated in a Bauhaus structure that was once a department store. After WWII, it was used for various purposes by the Communist party (Joseph Stalin gave a speech on one of the balconies). Our favorite spaces? The rough-luxe baths, featuring the perfect balance of distress and polish. Get the look with the following elements.

Dual Glaze Tiles

Above: For a similar tile, consider Heath Ceramics' Dual Glaze collection of tiles, which are a combination of glossy and matte, adding texture, contrast, and depth. Glazes are overlaid on a single tile, creating variations in reflection and the illusion of varying tile sizes within an installation. The two-by-four-inch, in-stock Dual Glaze Tiles come in four colors—opaque white, stone gray, paprika, and jade—and are $45 per square foot at Heath Ceramics.

Grove Brickworks Field Tile at Remodelista

Above: Create the illusion of painted brick with Waterworks' Grove Brickworks Field Tile, available in a choice of 16 colors (including Sugar White, shown here). The tiles, made of actual brick, are half an inch thick (a bit thicker than standard tile) and measure 2 3/8 by 8 1/4 inches; inquire about pricing.

Universal Towel Warmer

Above: The Universal Towel Warmer from Waterworks starts at $1,714 for the chrome version. Find more options (some surprisingly affordable) in Remodeling 101: Towel Warmers.
