PROJECT SUMMARY:

A daring combination of yellow and blue and a design awash in natural light make this master bathroom a visual delight. The sleek free-standing tub and an open shower with tiles in a mid-century pattern further a sense of luxury. Existing beams in the ceiling were integrated into the new design to add visual interest with architectural elements in the space. The area was designed as one open room with Shoji-style sliding doors that work for privacy while retaining light. The light in the room is accentuated by a wall of windows and the bright lemon yellow of the oversized wall tiles. The tiles alternate between a glossy and matte finish, creating an intriguing sensation of depth. A periwinkle blue vanity is an imaginative contrasting color, illuminated by sparkling pendants of textured hand blown glass. A walk-in closet and storage hidden behind the vanity mirrors is complemented by more storage in the drawers of the vanity, keeping the room clutter-free. The wood flooring in the sink area transitions to a sloped floor to accommodate the open shower, where the textured wall and a series of niches delight the eye while providing practical functionality in this sumptuous oasis alive with color.

2014 Master Design Gold Award for Master Bathroom - Before 1

The original bathroom was a series of busy and cluttered spaces with no organization and little natural light or personality.

The streamlined new layout vastly improves the natural light in the room. Shoji-style doors provide privacy as desired without diminishing the light and airy feeling of the room.

The original tub was small and recessed into the floor, making it difficult to use for a couple with a toddler.

The new free-standing tub is both practical and stylish. The clean, smooth edges make it safer for the clients' daughter to take baths in, while the generous size, thoughtfully placed shelf and orientation toward the light-filled wall of windows make it a luxurious retreat for the parents.

The existing bath and shower were basic and unmemorable, lacking in both function and style.

The decision to use an open shower immediately establishes a modern, luxurious mood in this master bathroom. The sensuous wall of texture is reminiscent of mid-century patterns. In one corner of the ceiling, existing beams revealed during construction were integrated into the design as appealing architectural elements.
