A bath by Christopher Cahill is both stylish and inviting.
A soaking tub takes center stage.

Large Bath: Award of Distinction

Sophisticated Style MAY/JUNE 2012

When Cahill Design Build remodeled an outdated master bath in DC, the vanities had no functional drawers and both the shower and toilet were tucked away in a closet with no natural light. Charged with a list of priorities that included functional vanities, a soaking tub, a shower for two and a toilet that was private but not hidden, designer Christopher Cahill had his work cut out for him.

First, he turned the angle of the toilet, eliminating the closeted room. This left plenty of space for a shower that now includes a bench; the soaking tub fits beside the shower stall. Custom vanities offer ample storage and radiant floor heating imparts comfort year round.

Cahill chose metal-legged sinks to give the space a lighter feel and clad the floors and countertops in Calcutta Gold marble with tile accents. The cabinetry is custom-colored to match the marble, and hand-painted grasscloth wallpaper finishes the look.
