Dining Room With Large Windows, Row of Bookshelves & Wood Table
A place both to study and gather, this dining area/library is simple, functional and beautiful. Favorite books line one wall, while a view of the shore shines through the windows on the other. The simple table is made from a single piece of wood custom-made for the space.
This master bath remodel was sparked by a flood in the client’s home. Working with the same floor plan, the designer renovated the bath with new tiles, cabinetry, countertops and fixtures. The shower area features a corner seat and recessed niches for soap and shampoo, and the vanity is adorned with white cabinets with crystal knobs.
Classic, timeless materials such as polished Diana Royale marble were specified for the floors and wall pattern. A modern basket weave stone border was used to add interest and topped off with a beveled marble pencil liner.
A number of approaches enabled the bathroom to feel bigger – installation of a new pocket door eliminated congestion and replacing the tub with a curbless shower removed physical as well as visual barriers. The sleek wall-mounted toilet conserves floor space with its tank built inside the wall.
The homeowners preferred a more space-efficient bathroom that would flow with their rustic yet modern farmhouse. The white wall-mounted toilet, sink and medicine cabinet pop against the dark tile, and the white subway tile in the shower balances the white fixtures in the room.
The wormy chestnut vanity in this bathroom was topped with a thick concrete top and semi-recessed sink. In order to complement the rustic farmhouse look, the designer finished the floor and three of the walls with tiles made to look like weathered lumber. Tiling to the ceiling leaves the room feeling taller than it actually is.
Sleek Modern Bathroom With Tucked-In Vanity and Recessed Medicine Cabinet
Smart design decisions made the most of this bathroom space, with the vanity placed inside a niche and a 48 inch lift-up medicine cabinet recessed into a void stud cavity space between the bathroom and bedroom behind.
Influences from architect Frank Lloyd Wright are seen in this powder room with the rhythmic play of the decorative vertical wood ladder detail, horizontal stacked bands of solid surface material and wood for the vanity. Additional warmth and interest were added with three stacked metal horizontal sconces. The vertical band of mirror visually expands the space, and the chrome faucet disappears into the mirror, creating a waterfall experience into the sculptural stone sink.
Small details such as a magnifying makeup mirror and an additional medicine cabinet were incorporated on his and hers sides. The countertops were crema marfil with a beveled edge to match the beveled pencil liners which blends perfectly with the Diana Royale tiles. Embracing light and neutral tones, this bathroom shines out in all its glory.
