SPECIAL PROJECT FEATURE: The Zen Zone
Every day is a spa day in this transcendent contemporary master bath. Centering the soothing soaking tub in the window-lined bay maximizes the views of the surrounding landscape, reinforcing the illusion of bathing in the trees. A pale color palette for cabinetry and stone creates a restful, serene environment. The asymmetrically balanced space is anchored by a makeup area to the left which aligns with a tall linen storage cabinet to the right. Dolomite tiles and slabs were hand-picked to ensure the quietest possible patterning. The sum of all these parts is a tranquil, harmonious flow.
The design team selected laminate with a wood-look matte washed oak finish for its gentle texture. Full-height flat panel doors conceal convenient storage pull-outs so not to interrupt the clean vertical lines with drawers. The horizontal orientation of the wood grain helps direct the eye around the spacious room. Brushed faucets complement the other light tones, while dark handles provide a touch of contrast. Placed horizontally, they repeat the horizontal wood grain and echo the black iron horizontal framing on the windows.
Who wouldn’t want to get ready for the day at this enviable makeup area? The windowed bay is flooded with flattering natural light on even the gloomiest morning. And when there’s also beautiful scenery to greet you, peacefulness reigns. The potted plant brings the outdoor greenery in and further envelops the owners in nature. Take a deep breath – this bathroom exemplifies stress reduction at its best.
Showered In Luxury
An expansive shower clad entirely in stone contains ample bench seating that encourages lingering. With an unobstructed view of the windows and trees, this morning ritual always feels airy and bright. The shower wall consists of sink and makeup vanities, separated by a wing wall. While the sink section utilizes practical tri-view medicine cabinets with LED down-lights to illuminate the countertop, the make-up area boasts a curvaceous mirror recessed into a dark wood lipped frame to enhance the organic ambiance. Namaste.
