Describe the homeowner's wish list.

It originally had a minimalist, European look to it, which felt cold so we had to transform the space to make it feel more intimate.

The client wanted a more functional vanity area, which we were successful in doing, and we were able to display elements to make the space feel less like a bathroom.

What were the homeowner's design problems?

We wanted to make the space feel more cohesive and improve the functionality to it.

How does the end result match up with your original vision?

We wanted to do a vent-less fireplace, but the client felt like the access was cumbersome and didn't want to deal with having to fill it with the liquid.

What was your biggest obstacle in this space?

It was a very large space with existing windows built around, and we had to keep in mind the relocation of the water closet. How we addressed these issues was to make sure all the elements were properly scaled.

What lessons did you learn?

We were very fortunate that there were no surprises on this project. Also, we had the great opportunity to design a high-end custom vanity that we were able to add to the C.G. Collection line.

What are the "hidden gems"?

The wood wall features various-sized lit niches for decorative items. The built-in bench in the shower appears to be freestanding and looks like a piece of furniture. Not all plumbing fixtures come in one's desired finish, but it's actually easy to have them plated to get the right look.
