Jessica Mowery won an NKBA Award for Large Bath, Best of Class.
A Seamless Blend May/June 2011
The owner of a 1990s house in Northwest DC wished to retain the home’s traditional architectural detailing while introducing a clean-lined, minimalist design scheme throughout. He called on interior designer Jessica Mowery to do the job, which included an overhaul of the master bath.
Mowery gutted the space to create an expansive spa environment. The owner wanted the room to feel masculine, so the designer chose wide, dark marble floor tiles and textured stone walls. She contrasted these two elements with a bright white, Corian-topped sink and attached Silestone vanity. White marble subway tiles work as the backsplash, and Mowery furnished the space with a Lucite stool by Kartell that can be pulled up to the vanity area.
An adjacent walk-in closet provides plenty of storage. Mowery added recessed lighting by Contrast and bath accessories—including vases by Italian designer Rina Menardi—from Contemporaria to complete the look.
