Romantic Rooms

As one thing leads to another, the first idea of a master bath remodel snowballed into remodeling the master bedroom, then the hallway and then the guest bath. From our first meeting, the owner and I were on the same wave length for the master bath’s romantic feel. She wanted lower maintenance and better function if I could throw that in too. For the layout, removing the wall that caged the shower and toilet separately allowed us to move the toilet and create a reasonable sized walk-in shower with a long bench, a place to pamper yourself. Then something interesting happened. Right when you entered the master suite there was an angled wall with a door to the master bath less than a step into the room. It was disjointed, so we removed the angled walls and conflicting doorways and found that a straight narrow frosted glass panel could be used as a divider wall between the space and the illusion was that both rooms become larger.

A porcelain look wood floor tile was installed and that’s when it looked like the proper stopping point should extend into the hall and then into the powder room. To repeat the frosted glass room divider, we decided that the all the doors could be painted framed doors with the same frosted glass. A yummy Venetian Plaster was selected to create silky smooth walls and rich Red Dragon granite looked exquisite on the master vanity and on the master shower bench. We added layers of light from recessed cans to the petite chandelier hanging over the vanity, to the back lit mirror and running lights under the cabinets. In the guest suite, the concept was to reuse elements in the master without making it exactly the same. The chocolate cabinetry acts as a nice anchor and the brushed brass accent was used to create a feature wall with similar romantic lighting layers.
