Combining hall space with a closet and a small out dated bathroom we were able to create this elegantly understated ultimate bachelor suite in soothing shades of espresso and cream.
The wish list included a generous sized steam shower with a seat, two lavatories, linen storage, a clothes hamper, a separate water closet and a large well organized and well lit walk-in closet.
Honed Imperial Cream travertine tile laid on the floor in random size and pattern acts as a dramatic backdrop for the rich stained cherry vanity cabinet and is capped off with a travertine counter top including his and her sinks. Hammered bronze vanity hardware mimics the band of metal tiles surrounding the shower.
Simple yet stately, cherry crown moldings grace the space and tie the cabinetry together keeping the over all look from being too fussy.
Cherry door frames, pocket doors and a cherry display niche in the water closet add the finishing touches.
Being an interior space without windows made the room quite dark. A unique solution to this was to create an interior textured glass window between the mirrors which allowed an adjacent skylight in the next space to flood the room with natural light while providing privacy.
The heart of this suite features luxurious Kohler biscuit and brushed nickel fixtures and accessories including multiple rain tiles, a ThermaSol steam shower and a frameless glass door. An adjacent tall cabinet holds towels and other shower essentials.
The generous eye pleasing closet portion of the suite boasts a place for everything and everything in its place and proves that form and function in equal portions will live blissfully ever after.
