2014 COTY Grand Award: Residential Bath Over $60,000
In a dated master bath, the tub, toilet, shower, and sinks lined the periphery, leaving the middle of the room empty. “The sightline led to a point between two windows,” says designer Rosemarie Howe, who was hired to remodel the space. “I knew I would need something sculptural there. That’s where the design started.”
Working with Gilday Renovations, Howe designed a new bathroom with a soaking tub centered between the windows. Beige tiles were replaced by an expanse of marble for a timeless look.
- Floor-to-ceiling marble tile and trim around the windows.
- Lighting design eliminates shadows and subdues glare.
- Geometric marble “rug” design is centered under tub.
- Asymmetrical soaking tub appears weightless.
