Bathroom Inspiration from Four Seasons Hotel in Denver, CO

modern bathroom with cubby next to sinkI had the pleasure staying at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver on a recent business trip. Their staff provided the best customer service I’ve experienced in a long time. They were friendly, helpful and called me by name whenever they had a chance. Upon check-in, they upgraded me to a corner room (was it me or my Klout?), with a fabulous bathroom set up.

I put my husband on alert and sent him cell phone shot after cell phone shot of the room. Then I got smart and used my Motorola Xoom, which I have through the Midwest Moms program with Verizon Wireless.

I was excited to know that some of the bathroom’s luxe features were going to be in my new en suite bathroom.

Modern faucet and handles? Check!

Recessed cubby to the side of the sink to house a mirror and a few key toiletries or perfume? Check! (Though this was not in the original plan, but rather a request I made after my return home.)

Heated tile floor? Check!

And below are a few modern conveniences which, alas, neither budget nor space allow for.

A vanity with an embedded TV! Expect to see more of these in the coming years. Watching Sanford and Son isn’t exactly a great way to enhance a relaxing bath, but it could be mighty handy to receive traffic and weather updates as you are prepping for work each morning.

Okay, not the most conducive image for a relatxing soak.

And last, but not least, a huge soaking tub, with a view!

We’ve chosen the fixtures, the vanity, the toilet, the lights and the tile. In theory, we chose the paint color a while back, but we’ll have to take another look once the walls are in place. The plumbing has been roughed in and now it’s just a matter of everything passing inspection. (Fingers crossed.)

Have you found decorating inspiration in an unexpected place?

Disclosure: I received the Xoom and six months of data plan services through my participation in the Midwest Moms program. I love my Xoom, especially because I’m still not using a smart phone (though I received a Droid Bionic to test out with this program as well). Though the Xoom does not replace a laptop, IMO, it has become my computer of choice for short trips out of town.

    Hey Kim! Just checking in to see how the reno is going. Rick just finished at our place this week — after all these years and way too much $$$, our house is finally DONE. I don’t care to put another penny into it (unfortunately, we still have to stare at our crumbling 100-year-old garage).

    You will LOVE the heated floor in your bathroom — we got the same thing. I’m so spoiled — we have it on a timer and when I happen to go in there and it’s not on, I feel irritated that my toes have to touch unheated tile.

    Can’t wait to see more of the progress at your place!
