Marble-look porcelain tops the Artcraft vanities, with doors painted to match Moonmist by Sherwin-Williams.

Blue Aqua Verre glass tile by Ann Sacks installed around the tub echoes the color of the swimming pool outside.

A soft, welcoming palette graces a primary bath remodel in Potomac

Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath, Ltd.

Jennifer Gilmer transformed an outmoded 1980s bath in Potomac into a serene and spacious retreat. “The goal was to create a functional oasis that would
feel open and peaceful, incorporating color and texture,” she notes. Reconfiguring the room improved functionality. The freestanding Signature tub centered under the window and existing skylights “commandeer attention rather than space,” says the designer. Floating vanities line two walls, and the WC and shower stall are tucked away behind frosted- and clear-glass doors. Large-scale, marble-look porcelain tile covers the floor and walls while blue accents on the vanities and glass tiles in the shower and behind the tub sound a serene note.

"This transformation stands out for its tranquil colors and clever reallocation of a dysfunctional space."
—Barbara Hawthorn, jurist
