A designer creates her own elegant master bath in a soft shade of blue.

After years of designing kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms for her clients, Georgia-based designer Jodie Hammesfahr decided it was time to put her considerable design skills to work on her own home.

She wanted her home to be her masterpiece — a reflection of her vibrant and daring style. With a little help from her creative colleague Andrew Jackson, her home was transformed. And no space in her newly refurbished home captures her creative sensibilities quite like her master bathroom. Here’s how she did it:

Jodie wanted a clean, unfussy bathroom free of clutter. She also wanted the space to have an ocean-like feel. To accomplish this, she chose white cabinets and solid-surface countertops for a stylish yet simple look. The blue jewel knobs on the cabinets add just the right amount of sparkle.

The room’s tranquil feel comes from the walls. To achieve the look, they were treated with a brilliant blue plaster and decorative color-negative swirls.

While the walls help set the bright, upbeat tone, it’s the elegant bathtub that is the room’s true focal point. The white porcelain tub sits on two mahogany blocks of wood. The homeowner went with an old-fashioned faucet, though the rest of the room is contemporary; she just liked the way it looked. The floors are covered in a unique terrazzo-style flooring speckled with pops of turquoise.

To give the room an aquatic feel, the enclosed corner shower is covered in a cascade of iridescent glass tile. The organic tile provides plenty of texture and light.
