Hide CaptionShow CaptionNow it's a serene master bathroom suite, complete with new marble tile on the floor, wainscoting tile on the walls and modern white fixtures, all surrounded by the golden glow of fresh wall paint.
The Chianti color in the towels and the reds in the art really pop against the warm wall shade, and the overall color scheme is consistent with the colors in the adjoining master bedroom, which provides a smooth transition between the rooms. The floor tile laid in a diagonal pattern, compact toilet and streamlined vanity work together to create the illusion of more space. Sealing off the entry to the homeowner's son's room (far left) is the finishing touch.
