Bathing Beauties: Timeless Glamour

Luxury and style go hand in hand in this bath renovation

When a young couple purchased a lavish but dated home in Great Falls, they hired Dahlia Design to implement a whole-house renovation that would include the master bath. Prior to the remodel, the bath was awkwardly laid out on two levels; the company principal, Dahlia, gutted the space, then expanded it so that the two levels became one. The clients “had no specifications,” the designer says. “They gave me free rein to do whatever I wanted.”

Dahlia envisioned a high-end, hotel-style environment for the bath, which she felt would speak to her well-traveled clients. With the age and style of the homeowners in mind, “I decided to create something luxurious yet young,” she says. “I kept it elegant, glamorous, timeless and classic.” 

The floors, tub surround and his-and-hers vanity tops are Carrara marble. Custom cabinetry perfectly fits the space, and elaborate custom millwork embellishes the walls and encases the Kohler whirlpool tub. Adorning the half-moon bank of windows are lush draperies in a satin/cotton blend from JK Drapery, paired with a layer of sheers that allow for privacy while admitting natural light. 

An ornate chandelier and sconces from Holly Hunt illuminate the room and convey a touch of sumptuousness; on the ceiling, a reflective faux finish treatment by decorative artist Stacey Tranter of Twin Diamond Studios adds to the sparkle—as do all the fixtures and cabinet hardware, which are accented in Swarovski crystal.

Dahlia chose Grohe fixtures for both the vanity basins and the spacious walk-in shower, which boasts a Rainshower Jumbo Showerhead that measures 16 inches in diameter—the only item the homeowners specifically requested. A pair of plush, tufted chairs from Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman completes the look.
