Elegance for Two

Mon 07 2010

A freestanding quarter-sawn island centered in the room matches the quartered oak double doors and offers continuity moving into the room.  The shower and toilet area were placed on a diagonal to soften the space. An antique-style freestanding tub with period faucets was nestled into a 7-window alcove for a lovely focal point. This bath creates a luxurious space for husband and wife. Peter Ross Salerno

A Bath for All Ages

Fri 07 2010

A clean modern appearance was achieved by introducing angles and a linear tile layout. An asymmetrical soaking tub is reflected in angle by the shower seat. The contrasting effects of 2’x 2′ tiles versus micro-tiles and engineered stone versus granite helped convey a spa-like environment. Overall taupe and beige with the opposing honed black granite and carbon porcelain tiles bring interest in color to a neutral space. Jan E. Regis

The challenge for this single downstairs bath was to incorporate durability. Glass mosaic tiles wrap a portion of wall, which was furrowed six inches to accommodate cast iron pipes and still allow for the use of a ll-mounted faucet. Cherry cabinets and weathered copper fixtures tie this bath into the traditional styling of the old home. A granite vessel sink, mosaic tiles, and contemporary light fixtures give eclectic balance to the space. Cheryl Kees Clendenon

Captain’s Quarters

Fri 07 2010

This new pool bath is fit  with the elegance of an old-time sailing vessel. The glossy wood paneling and oiled teak vanity exude warmth highlighted by period-style lighting. The blue green glass vessel sink and ship’s wheel handles of a wall mount faucet are accents to the wood-dominant room. Wood and brass are the compatible companions to give this client’s pool bathroom a distinct personality. Cheryl Kees Clendenon

Deco Design

A vintage pedestal sink and toilet and a period faucet and shower valve in polished nickel are additional deco accents. Decorative ceramic tiles were designed that featured a chevron and swags in black, with red and hunter green accents against a bright backdrop of matte yellow field tiles.  An antique ceiling fixture and sconces give authenticity to the feel of the bathroom.

Soothing Spa

Thu 07 2010

A small niche to house a linen tower with hamper was carved out of a closet that backs up to the bathroom wall. The custom-designed Lyptus wood vanity is dark stained and has a grid pattern shelf on the bottom, in addition to hidden drawers on either side of the sink. Two small floating shelves and a wood backdrop to hang the mirror add visual interest . Cheryl Kees Clendenon

This rustic bathroom  it was constructed of birch logs, bark, twigs and antlers. The polished walnut top and tall backsplash are complimented by a green marble vessel sink. For a cozy and cave-like feel to the room, the walls surrounding the vanity are covered with tongue and groove pine paneling. Dawn M

Art in Nature

Wed 07 2010

A 5’x8′ Sicis multi-glass mosaic mural is the intricate and colorful focus of the space. The green glass tile and brass floor and custom Bubinga vanity of African rosewood are complementing elements to the art. Pearlized walls and a ceiling cove of gold leaf offer a shimmering background. A satin gold-finished wall-mounted faucet and the graceful lines of an organic shaped vessel sink complete this astonishing natural beauty. Tess E. Giuliani

Industrial Appeal

Wed 07 2010

The concrete floors are tinted in a soothing eggplant hue. The scarlet red of feature walls generates instant contrast to the coolness of cement and metal. Fired steel panels riveted to the remaining walls provide a bold effect balanced by the bare bulb light fixtures. A framed specialty glass alternative became the perfect choice for a door, to allow a less confined feeling while maintaining privacy. Mary Roles. Lori Carroll & Associates

A space that was true to the integrity of the structure, and would provide a place of solitude for a busy doctor, took on the shape of this restful sleek design, entitled Wild Plum, after the natural vegetation, native to the property. Well-placed walls and doors separate the space while allowing for an open environment, in-sync with the open air feeling of the home site. Brian M. Johnson
