The owners of a historic home in the Spanish Revival style wanted a grand master bathroom as a respite from their busy lifestyles. The bathroom needed to align with the original character of their early 1900's home, while providing modern function, convenience and luxury. Bringing natural light into the room was a priority. A skylight, plus carefully selected paint and tile colors, help to balance dark and light aspects. A rich mixture of materials, including gleaming Sahara Gold tile and a medallion inlay on the floor, infuse the room with light and color. A freestanding rectangular tub communicates understated elegance. The opulently large shower is framed by a graceful arch of artistic hand-painted tiles. In keeping with the home's historic nature, the bathroom's aesthetic is classic, sophisticated and ornate, while also providing the owners with the ease and comfort of modern living.

Back to Awards.


The original bathroom had been remodeled sometime in the 1980s with little attention paid to how its design fit with the historical nature of the home.


Ornately detailed hand-painted tiles bring continuity to the design and unify the master bath with the home's historical nature. The arch door and window in the shower area echo a theme used throughout the house. The sophisticated selection of materials balances light and dark elements.


The vanity area now presents a spacious, welcoming area that two people can easily share. The arch theme of the home is carried through here in the graceful shape of the mirrors and the center niche. Abundant storage in the custom cabinetry and the interesting pair of built-in medicine cabinets on each wall brings modern convenience to this impressive space.
