About the Project
Life on the Connecticut shore is idyllic, with breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound. Such a luxurious setting for the primary bath is less about perfunctory grooming and more about meditative restoration! The contemporary freestanding soaking tub beckons you to unwind before a panorama of sea, sand, rock jetties and marsh grasses. White wood blinds on the double-height widows provide privacy and light control and add to the beachy vibe.
Sandy tones are pulled indoors with the stacked stone mosaic, which covers both the floor and the entire walls. The variegated colors and subtly-staggered heights of the stones evoke the ever-changing landscape just beyond. To ground the space, the vanities and matching mirror frames were executed in horizontal-grained rift cut oak with a custom stain. The dual sinks are separated by a lower-height cabinet and sit atop simple square furniture legs for an open feeling. Caesarstone countertops in an earthy mottled pattern blend with the cabinetry. For shine, the faucets are a sleek ribbon style fashioned in polished nickel, which coordinate with the floor-mounted tub filler and attached coiled hand-held spray.
It’s no wonder that two tub trays were included: you’ll want to spend a lot of time here.
This project was designed in collaboration with Robert A. Cardello Architects.
