The owners of a historic home in the Spanish Revival style wanted a grand master bathroom as a respite from their busy lifestyles. The original bathroom had been remodeled in the 1980s with little thought given to how its design fit with the historical nature of the home. The new master bathroom needed to align with the original character of the early 1900's home, while providing modern function, convenience and luxury. The remarkable transformation of this room gave the clients the grand master bathroom they had dreamed about, with all the storage and modern luxuries they desired. A beautiful room on its own, the master bathroom also seems as if it has always belonged in its historical home.
The function and aesthetics of the existing bathroom left much to be desired. The room had been remodeled sometime in the 1980s with little attention paid to how its design fit with the historical nature of the home.
The shower was designed as a luxuriously large space where the clients could find a soothing retreat at the end of a long day or an energizing space at the beginning of one. The arched window and door reflect a design theme used throughout the historical 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 all through 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.
