HGTV Urban Oasis 2013: Master Bathroom Pictures
Smart and stylish, the master bathroom offers a spa oasis, plus stunning views of Boston's cityscape.
A sleek space with furnishings pared down, the master bathroom invites relaxation. A 6-foot floating quartz vanity commands attention and breaks up a sea of tile in neutral tones.
Sculptural in form, a vessel sink fashioned from vitreous china pops against the dark quartz.
Space-saving pocket doors separate the master bedroom from the laundry area, closet and master bathroom.
The 2' 4" x 5' 4" shower stall is clad floor to ceiling in a mix of tumbled marble and glass mosaic tile. A window, carved into the wall, provides views into the master bedroom and through windows beyond.
Eight polished chrome body sprays offer the ultimate hydrotherapy experience. Each 54-nozzle spray pivots to provide targeted cleansing. A digital interface allows the user to preprogram up to six shower experiences.
Stripes of mosaic glass tile continue a linear design motif inspired by the cables and towers of Boston's Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge.
A polished chrome four-way handshower and square rainhead with air induction spray technology offer a design-forward approach to the spa shower experience.
"We mirrored the area underneath the master bath counter," says interior designer Lindsay Pumpa. "If you are standing in the master bedroom and look into the bathroom, the mirror makes the ceiling look twice as high. We used as many tricks as we could to make the space feel larger."
Smart and sleek in form, the water-efficient toilet and bidet system offers a motion-controlled cover and lid, heated seat and foot warmer and built-in speakers to play your favorite audio.
Space-saving and contemporary in design, a wall-mounted faucet in polished chrome is paired with ballast-style sconces that, suspended away from the wall, emit 360 degrees of diffused light.
The glass enclosure invites light to travel from the master bedroom through the shower stall and into the bathroom. Chrome linear handles add a touch of shine and sparkle.
A roller shade, mounted above the picture window in the master bedroom, may be drawn when privacy is required.
In the calm, neutral space, an opulent light fixture, designed by Robert Abbey, provides drama. The flush-mounted chandelier features four circular rows of clear glass drops, reminiscent of water droplets.
A blanket-topped leather ottoman and clear glass-drop chandelier lend lived-in elegance in the walk-in closet area, where hanging racks and open shelves provide ample storage for clothing, shoes and fashion accessories.
Fabric bins corral socks, ties and scarves while a pull-out drawer and open shelving offer space to stow sweaters, jeans and shoes. Brightly colored scarves stand in for formal artwork.
A pocket door, the exterior clad in mirrored glass, can be drawn to conceal the washer and dryer and provide a makeshift wardrobe mirror.
The laundry area, relocated from the space that now houses a dedicated powder room, features a large-capacity washer and ventless dryer.
The strategy for punching through the wall and adding a window was twofold: to brighten the once-dark space and extend views to the very back wall. "The scene overlooking the Boston Public Garden is to die for. Why block that view with a wall?" says Lindsay Pumpa.
