The owners’ bath in a Georgian-style residence sadly reflected its 1980s provenance—right down to the platform tub and glass-block dividers. After purchasing the Churchville, Maryland, dwelling, new residents contacted Winsome Interior Design for an overhaul. They requested a traditional aesthetic to match the home’s classic framework.
Partners Arianna Pannoni and Kasey Bedford began by repurposing a small adjacent dressing room as a shower enclosure, which made room for a separate WC and created an airy, open feel. They then homed in on a warm, traditional sensibility, designing an antique-inspired vanity for character and combining it with an ornate clawfoot tub.
“It was intentional to pair those refined features with casual elements like the subway tile in the shower and penny-tile flooring,” recounts Pannoni. “We added a decorative border on the floor and a beaded accent on the shower wall so the tile wouldn’t feel bland.” Rich wood tones, large-format botanical wall covering and antiqued plumbing fixtures completed the space.
“We had the Sandberg wallpaper selected from the very beginning; our clients just fell in love with the imagery in it,” Bedford observes. “We love adding color to trim, so we picked a shade present in the wallpaper and matched it with Farrow & Ball’s Treron on the baseboard, crown molding and windows.”
Brass-and-opaque-glass Visual Comfort light fixtures and Kravet draperies trimmed with Schumacher fringe contribute to the vintage vibe but still feel fresh.
