Finished master bath-- tub, blue and white

NaRoMay 26, 2012

More than a year after a giant tree smashed our house, we're back home.

I got a lot of help from these forums during the long rebuilding process. Thank you all so much for your generosity of knowledge and spirit.

Here's how one of my favorite rooms-- the master bath-- turned out:

Details include:

Victoria and Albert "York" tub

Tub filler and hand shower from Signature Hardware

Fairfax by Kohler lav and shower faucets

Farrow and Ball "Borrowed Light" mixed in Benjamin Moore walls

Benjamin Moore "Simply White" cabinets and trim

Custom cabinets and shower

I Bianchi di Rex Calacatta porcelain tile-- matte on floors, shiny on shower walls

Super White countertops, shower threshold, and shelves in shower niche

Gatco Designer II mirrors

Lowe's Raleigh towel rings, bars, and hooks

Beautiful bathroom. Everything is so well coordinated. I really like the super white with the floor. Thanks for listing your fixtures, etc.

Ya gotta love those windows!

Congratulations on getting back in your house after such a disaster. I hope no one was hurt! Our trees all around could easily do the same so it's a worry but with all that natural beauty and privacy it's worth it. Your bathroom is beautiful and has a great high end look. You made great choices.

Beautiful space!

I love the way the shower is more of a 'room' than a glass box. We're thinking of doing something along those lines, and I'd love to hear how you like it.

I'd also love to hear about your V&A tub. Is it the composite marble? Or acrylic?

Thank you all so much for your kind comments. It was very scary and disruptive, but nobody was hurt. Our insurance company and contractor were very good, and by kicking in a little extra on our end, we ended up with a pretty amazing home.

Sweeby, there's a nice symmetry with the shower roomlet at one end of the tub and the toilet roomlet at the other. So the layout gives some privacy in the shower and complete privacy in the loo, while creating a cozy alcove/frame for the tub and the windows. It doesn't feel closed off or cut up, I think because of the light colors, windows, and similar materials used throughout.

The V & A tub is "Englishcast," a mix of volcanic limestone and resin. It's supposed to hold the heat better than acrylic, and I think it looks richer, as well. Plus it comes with a 25-year warranty.

What a beautiful room! Your V & A tub could not look more perfect sitting in front of the gorgeous windows overlooking your picturesque view. Wishing you many years of peaceful enjoyment in your "new" home!

I'm so sorry that your house was smashed by a tree. That sounds devastating. But, wowza! The new bathroom is fabulous!

Katie, I got it through European Sink in Atlanta-- where I also had the chance to try it on for size. http://europeansinkatlanta.com is the website.

Lovely bathroom. I especially like the movement in the tile on the floor and the room like enclosure of the shower.
