About the Project
Stately opulence is the hallmark of this extraordinary primary bath. In a space with more square footage than many New York apartments, the challenge here was to make it feel intimate. The lofty sloped tray ceilings, while certainly dramatic, didn’t make the task any easier. To remedy this, ceiling coffers were installed to contribute a more human scale. For additional ambiance, a stack of crown molding was placed at the bottom of the tray slopes to conceal LED up-lighting. The coffers’ diamond motif was repeated in the custom-designed tile border around the room and into the shower, separating the upper and lower marble wall tiles. The pattern is also referenced in the hexagonal tile “rug”, adding interest to the wide expanse of flooring.
Cabinetry is classic inset construction with a graceful ogee profile surrounding the recessed center panels. Benjamin Moore’s “Super White” supplies a soothing element against the exuberant mixture of marble. A glamorous silver soaking tub sits beneath the window, dividing the space equally for the homeowners: each gets their own vanity and adjacent linen armoire. Opposite the tub is a generous grooming area with ample drawer and cabinet storage for washroom essentials. Dual tilt-out hampers are a practical touch.
