Master Bathroom Pictures From HGTV Green Home 2012
Although contemporary in aesthetic, layering of texture adds warmth to the space. The vision of architect Steve Kemp, square shapes — tile, mirrors and sliver windows — find expression in the bathroom.
Sliver windows, barely 8 1/2 inches wide, allow light to stream into the space and provide views of the backyard's landscaped embankment.
To break up the sea of crisp white, mosaic tile in emperador dark marble and brown glass echoes the design of decorative roofline dovecotes.
A second vanity area is defined by a rustic dresser, lacquered trays, mercury glass vases and the focal point: sunburst mirrors fashioned from antiqued mirror panes.
Reminiscent of an old pharmacy or mercantile cabinet, the console boasts nine individual drawers for storage of toiletries, makeup and jewelry.
A hickory wood contemporary-style vanity accommodates his and hers sinks and tall rectilinear glass pendant lights that echo the design of the sliver windows.
A chestnut stain enhances the wood grain of rustic hickory cabinetry. Square bar pulls in satin nickel lend a dash of contemporary style.
Organic cotton towels and terry robes lend spa style to the master bath.
The brushed-nickel digital shower control allows the user to preset water flow and temperature.
Distressed stair balusters turned candlesticks, purchased at an Alpharetta, Ga., gift boutique, lend color and stand in contrast to the room's more refined features.
Tile transitions to hand-scraped engineered hickory wood flooring in the master bedroom.
A pocket door separates the bathroom from the master closet, which overlooks the barbecue courtyard and boasts hanging rods, storage drawers and locker-style cabinetry.
A water closet houses the room's dual-flush toilet. Eco-friendly cotton towels soften the appearance of cool, contemporary tile-clad walls.
