An Artful Design

Large Bath: Best of Class

By Julie Sanders | Photography by Anice Hoachlander

In a spare, contemporary master bath, a sculptural soaking tub creates a focal point, poised beneath a picture window so as to take full advantage of the view while to one side a niche displaying artwork gives bathers another viewing option. 

The positioning of this tub perfectly illustrates what the homeowners were looking for in a bathroom renovation when they tapped Michael Stehlik of CARNEMARK for the job. Rather than creating expanses of cabinetry along the room’s periphery and anchoring the tub to a wall, the designer added a stand-alone vanity with a Caesarstone countertop and powder-coated steel basins, floated the tub and installed a large, frameless shower with plumbing concealed in a limestone water column. A solid white cube provides seating, both inside the shower and out. Accent walls of Carrara marble unify the room while blue limestone floors add warmth.
