Pueblo-Revival Style Master Bath

See a stunning example of architecture that is one with its environment and places a strong emphasis on natural materials.

  • When people speak of the Santa Fe design, what they’re really talking about is the pueblo-revival style: architecture that’s one with its environment and emphasizes natural materials such as wood, stone and mud bricks. This master bathroom is a stunning example of the pueblo-revival style. It’s most evident in the ceiling, with hand-carved viga beams, rough-hewn rafters and corbels adding architectural interest and support. This style of architecture is characteristic of American Indian and Spanish-style homes in the Southwest.
  • The focal point of the room is the matching vanities with their stacked-stone walls and sandstone countertops.
  • Tucked behind the his-and-her sinks is the built-in whirlpool tub. Natural light pours into the bath area through the large window and expansive skylights above.
  • The stacked stone continues all the way into the walk-in shower. The recessed window provides a view of the trees in the homeowners’ backyard. The natural green tile used throughout the bathroom was also used on the shower floor to add a splash of color to the space.
  • There are a few elegant touches in this bathroom that really can't be considered Santa Fe style. Beautiful accents like the Romanesque bronze fixtures, the handcrafted Moroccan mirror frame and the antique ivory screen add a dash of exotic style to the otherwise Southwestern design.
