We are so excited to announce that one of our projects has been featured in the Spring 2018 issue of Sacramento Home Magazine! The project, our Glamorous Glass Ensuite, is one of our favorites to date, and we were so lucky to have the lovely and talented Kat Alves as our photographer.
This bright, classic, traditional bathroom was inspired by the client’s love of the crystal blue waters found along the west coast of Italy – a color that also happens to be the client’s favorite. The client’s main requests included: increase the amount of natural light and airiness, add storage, and make the room feel like a retreat. The delicate glass tiles and floor-to-ceiling shower enclosure bounce light around the room like ocean waves, while the undermount tub with Carrera marble deck and sparkling bubble chandelier bring a sense of spa-like luxury to the space. In order to add natural light, rather than adding window treatments for privacy, the clear glass in the windows was replaced with opaque, textured rain glass that filters light evenly throughout the space. This solution also solved the problem of window treatments for the client’s octagonal windows.
Every detail was coordinated to create a sense of gracefulness; from the unusual boat shape of the sinks and mirrors, to the sleek, comfort-grip cabinet pulls, to the sophisticated vanity lights. Although the client declined to install grab bars in the tub and toilet areas, backing was installed in the walls for future grab bar installations, and the slide bar for the handheld showerhead doubles as a grab bar as well. The spacious vanities, sculptural storage tower, and custom closet organizers were all designed to fit the client’s needs and increase usable storage space, and the unique countertop edge detail adds a sense of timelessness that will keep this bathroom feeling elegant and refreshing for years to come.
