Our friends at the Ace Hotel recently let us know that they’re offering an array of their genius bathroom products for sale on their website (which is good news, since we always seem to gravitate to their bathroom design). Take a look at the Ace baths in DTLA, with interiors by Commune, and copy away.

Above: Commune used metal factory windows to delineate the bathrooms from the bedrooms.
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. Photograph by Spencer Lowell, courtesy of the Ace Hotel.
