When Scarlett Breeding of Alt Breeding Schwarz Architects was tapped to remodel the spare bath in a Victorian house in Annapolis’s historic district, her design choices were constrained by the relatively small space. In order to accommodate the owners’ wish list, she chose a narrow vanity in a traditional style with a cantilevered front; it’s topped with a counter made of white Thassos marble. Storage space was at a premium; Breeding found it between the studs inside the wall cavities. She installed mirrored touch panels that swing open to reveal shelving.
In keeping with the historic vernacular, Breeding embellished the bathroom with traditional architectural elements such as wainscoting, crown molding, retro-style floor tile and lights by Palmer Hargrave. She kept the space fresh and modern with a sleek, curved-glass shower and a floating slipper tub.
