An outdated master bathroom was transformed into a sanctuary ideal for pampering and romance. The new bathroom now includes an EcoSmart fireplace that looks through to the master bathroom; a seven-foot, walk-in shower with textured Italian tiles and rain-shower head; floor-to-ceiling tiles in cool blues, taupes and whites; a delicate glass chandelier; and an oversized tub. Custom cabinetry in creamy tones provides generous storage space for electronics and cosmetics, and allows the subtle, quartz-vanity countertops to glisten and remain clutter-free.
Judges said: “This bathroom renovation is an elegant transformation from a dated master bath to a serene retreat. The designer created a soothing space by employing restraint in the material selection and restricting [herself] to a limited palette. The fixtures and tiles exhibit a clear attention to detail. The floor tiles repeat the proportions expressed in the linear wall tile on a larger scale.”
