About the Master Bathroom:
An effective layering of materials and patterns spells success in the spa style bathroom, where honed travertine and glass tile blend seamlessly. The "tone-on-tone, clean" look, says interior designer Linda Woodrum, complements the room's high-tech features, including a toilet/bidet and programmable shower and tub features.
Travertine tile clads the floor, wall and ceiling in the glass enclosed shower and bathing area, where a series of windows beams light into the space without sacrificing privacy.
The room's wet enclosure includes a soaking tub, nested in the 6 foot deep by 3 ½-foot wide bathing area. Why a shower and bath combination? "You are at the beach and maybe you want to come home and have a long soak but first you shower off and then you soak," says Linda.
The 7 foot vanity, capped with quartz, offers his and hers sinks. Bayberry bouquets and an African violet lend an infusion of color and pop when paired with ceramic candle lanterns and condiment plates topped with imported French milk soaps.
Clear glass encompasses the wet enclosure, while a wall of frosted glass offers a buffer of privacy in the water closet area while allowing sunlight to stream through.
The oversized vanity mirror reflects light and visually expands the size of the space. A mercury glass lamp placed atop the counter surface continues the focus on reflective surfaces.
