Bathroom Design

Sally and I are designing a project in Wellesley managed and built by Landmark Services, who are terrific by the way. The project involves the renovation of the kitchen, powder room and mud room ares on the first floor, the family bath and master bath on the second floor and creating a home office over the garage. We’re in the thick of design development right now, with final decisions being made on all materials, finishes, plumbing fixtures, kitchen appliances, etc. I spoke briefly about the kitchen in this post.

The Master Bath is progressing nicely and I thought I’d share a sketch of the vanity. It’s an “L” shape, with full height storage on the left – both open shelves and closed storage. Once again, the cabinets are flush inset, similar to the kitchen. Note the stone base – still thinking that thru…

We’re looking at various Jerusalem Gold Limestone options for the floor, shower, wainscot and decorative tile. (This is the third master bath using this material in less than a year. Is this a trend?)

 

My vote is for the tile in image #2, with it’s variation in visual texture and tonality. I love what you could do for a backsplash in the kitchen with the tile in image #3 – a little rough and relaxed, while exuding loads of charm and sophistication.

It will be interesting to see where we all end up!

Sally is designing a master bath that is no bigger than a minute. I find myself wondering how she is planning to inject character and charm into the scheme without it becoming overwhelming. Might it be with pattern?

First three images from April 2013 Art & Decoration. The way the photographs were credited I could not determine which photographer took which shot. The photographers were Edith Andreotta, Patirck Binet and Oliver Hallot.

 

Shape and form? (LOVE the waterfall bench seat!)

 

Or texture?

 

Time will tell…

Have a great day!

It’s so satisfying to see the excitement on a client’s face at the end of a marathon meeting. Last night was one of those times. A 2 1/2 hour meeting – reviewed 30 drawings of design proposals for the master bedroom suite, guest bath, foyer, family room and study/living room. Then reviewed and reconfirmed the design for the front portico. So many great decisions were made!

In this post, I want to share a little of the process of refining the vanity in the master bath. Here’s a picture of the existing master bath and vanity – our starting point.

 

A few idea images…

 

The floor plan.

 

For the vanity, I created four sketches. During the meeting we systematically reviewed, dissected and modified each sketch – creating a new design. The aress marked with boxes in the sketches are the areas we worked to create the new design. (One sketch was totally rejected…)

The final idea looks like this… It may not look like much, but for me, it’s the equivalent of taking notes. Each “sloppy line” has meaning.

I can’t wait to draw the new vanity and show it to our client!

Have a great week! I’ll be busy drawing…
