Vanity Fair

A clever design infuses an elegant master bath with light and privacy

The master bath of a custom home in Great Falls, Virginia, took an innovative turn when J. Paul Lobkovich of Lobkovich, Inc., opted to install the double vanity in the center of the room. “It’s a big room,” explains the kitchen-and-bath designer. “I didn’t want it to feel like a dance floor in the middle.”

Collaborating on the project with Lobkovich—as well as Sutton Yantis Associates Architects and Susan Gulick Interiors—Great Falls Construction installed a floating center wall sturdy enough to hold both vanities. The sense of lightness is enhanced by custom Signature Hardware vanities that hang from each side of the wall, as well as a reveal between the marble vanity countertops and cabinets.

Embellished with a marble-and-brass tile motif, the wall is framed in the same marble as the vanity top for consistency. Says Lobkovich, “We created a partition without creating a division.”
