Sleek + Subtle: 2nd Place

A blend of novel materials forms a textural interplay

A couple who approached Amber Bullock to revitalize their existing master bath had some specific requests. They wanted a linen closet, better light and a sense of style. Bullock’s plan included a wall-hung, cherry-stained vanity, recessed uplift medicine cabinets, a freestanding Clarke Architectural tub and a layered lighting plan. Bullock established a serene aesthetic with an accent wall of three-dimensional tile framed by glossy, large-format porcelain tile. A mosaic niche over the tub and a natural-stone and glass-tile backsplash add subtle contrast. As Bullock explains, “These elements harmonize well to create an edited yet detailed space.”
