Mid-Century Makeover<br />

BEFORE<br />

The homeowners just purchased this lovely home but the kitchen was cramped and felt on top of<br />

the family room. The plan was to remove a load bearing wall between the kitchen and dining room<br />

and relocate the kitchen into the dining room. The old kitchen space then became the dinette area<br />

and the old formal living room became the new formal dining room. We removed windows in the<br />

dining room where the new cooktop and hood were to be installed in the new design and added a<br />

window in the dining room where the home for the kitchen sink was to be placed. This opened up<br />

the entire first floor plan and made it function better for this growing family and to also entertain<br />

for years to come.<br />

is our goal.<br />

BEFORE<br />

I had a wonderful experience working with Kitchen Kraft on our renovation project. Jim was very thoughtful<br />

in the layout. He made sure it was not only aesthetically beautiful, but also functionally tailored to my<br />

family’s lifestyle. For example, the sink and window look out onto my backyard as opposed to the side of my<br />

home. That way I can cook and still watch my small children while they play outside. The design process was<br />

so fun. Jim helped me find details and fixtures that showcased my primarily traditional decorating style with<br />

small hints of french country and farmhouse.<br />

The team of contractors that worked on our project were fantastic. They were very friendly and did<br />

outstanding work. The project was completed ahead of schedule, and we are just thrilled with the results.<br />

EDITOR’S<br />

NOTE<br />


As someone who has a tote bag full of paint chips and a shelf in my basement<br />

full of sample pints, I have to admit I am not particularly good at making home<br />

decorating decisions. I am convinced the perfect color, fabric, sofa, light fixture…<br />

is out there, I just need to look in enough stores, read enough magazines,<br />

or search enough websites to find it.<br />

There’s no doubt this kind of hand wringing is annoying for anyone who is<br />

unfortunate enough to be in my home listening to my laments. And I apologize<br />

once again to my color-blind husband for my repeatedly asking “what do you<br />

think of this color?”<br />

But that kind of thinking came into play when I read about one of the<br />

products showcased at February’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS).<br />

BlueStar, a manufacturer of high-performance appliances, introduced a line<br />

in which custom images can be applied directly on refrigerators and ranges.<br />

Not only that, they offer an assortment of more than 1,000 colors, a “rainbow<br />

of knob colors” and 10 metal trims. Whoa! That calls for a serious number of<br />

decisions!<br />

Would I pick a bold and colorful pattern? Or play it safe with a subtle subwaystyle<br />

Patterns, textures and colors are<br />

ready to climb your walls and floors<br />

It’s hard to imagine a category that offers you more choices for kitchen, bath or<br />

flooring design selections than tile. First, there’s the material it’s made of: ceramic,<br />

porcelain, glass, cement, metal and stone. Then there is the shape: subway,<br />

hexagonal, square, ogee and more. Then of course the one that really<br />

draws us in…that amazing array of colors. We’ve selected a few standouts<br />

that come with a bit of a contemporary flair. See if you have a favorite. ➻<br />

Astral Plane Porcelain Stone from Crossville<br />

Live large<br />

Generously oversized tiles can make a<br />

space feel larger and less busy. Fewer<br />

grout lines help create a sleek look,<br />

and a lower level of maintenance in<br />

applications such as a shower surround.<br />

Consider the Astral Plane<br />

Porcelain Stone from Crossville. It’s<br />

recommended for interior floors,<br />

walls, countertops, and exterior walls<br />

and is available in sizes 24x24, 12x24<br />

and 6x24.<br />

Glow with glass<br />

While Americans primarily use tile in<br />

kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms<br />

and entry foyers, in other parts of<br />

the world, it is frequently used to add<br />

color and texture to different areas of<br />

the home. Consider creating a focal<br />

wall in a living room or study with<br />

tile like Luce Clipper from Lunada<br />

Bay. This glass tile reflects light like<br />

sunlight shimmering on water.<br />

Add an accent<br />

If an overall wash of color is a bit<br />

too much for your taste, consider a<br />

neutral field tile with just a vibrant<br />

accent piece scattered throughout<br />

your design. Charley Harper for<br />

Installation, Motawi’s 3x6 ceramic<br />

subway tile line, features 10 of<br />

Harper’s whimsical wildlife designs<br />

with his characteristic midcentury<br />

modern style.<br />

See in 3D<br />

Your walls and floors will come alive<br />

when you add a three-dimensional<br />

tile that gives the space an appealing<br />

visual texture with a raised, uneven<br />

look. A selection such as Herald by<br />

Original Style tricks the eye and<br />

makes you want to rub your hands<br />

across its surface before you convince<br />

yourself that it is actually flat.<br />

Speak with stone<br />

It’s hard to beat the statement you make when you add the look of natural stone—granite,<br />

marble, limestone or travertine—to a space, especially when it’s laid in large segments. Drawing<br />

inspiration from both nature and modernist architecture, Barcelona from Walker Zanger is a<br />

collection of glazed porcelain tiles that recreates the appearance of vein-cut onyx.<br />

Go with a classic<br />

Hexagonal tiles are a classic that have made their way, in a one-inch format,<br />

to bathroom floors since the early 1900s. In a stylish update, Fireclay Tile has<br />

introduced their Ombre Hexagon 6-inch wall tiles that can be used to create<br />

a fun and futuristic kitchen backsplash that celebrates a clean aesthetic and<br />

bold originality.<br />

Go big with mosaics<br />

You can make a very big statement<br />

with tiny tiles. Mosaic tiles, made of<br />

ceramic, porcelain, glass, natural stone<br />

or metal, typically come mounted on<br />

a mesh sheet. Instead of a random<br />

pattern, you might want to consider a<br />

more deliberate design, such as Kyoto<br />

Skies from New Ravenna which features<br />

inviting graphics made of handcut<br />

jewel glass.<br />

Ride to Morocco<br />

The ogee is a curved shape consisting<br />

of a concave arc and vertical ends. This<br />

shape is often referred to as Moroccan<br />

and its history can be traced back to<br />

ancient Persia. You might choose a<br />

ceramic tile such as Sofia Mosaic from<br />

Walker Zanger to showcase the graceful<br />

curves and bright hues that are<br />

indicative of this family.<br />

Beavercreek contemporary blends a neutral<br />

palette with organic accents<br />

BY LEE RHODES | Photos by Dawn Smith<br />

Touches of caramel and<br />

organic elements add to<br />

the inviting atmosphere.<br />

In the White Barn Trails community in Beavercreek, the scenery<br />

and surroundings set the tone for the homes which seamlessly<br />

integrate into the existing landscape. The community, which<br />

reflects country living with in-town convenience, boasts miles<br />

of walking trails along greenways, woods and ponds, and each<br />

home is positioned in such a way as to showcase this natural<br />

beauty. One home in particular is a master study in elegance,<br />

proportion, scale and light ; let it inspire the dreamer in you. ➻<br />

housetrends magazine <strong>2021</strong> 29

Architectural details keep the ceiling<br />

spaces interesting throughout the home.<br />

30 housetrends.com

The family who owns this transitionalstyle<br />

home opted to bring the beauty of<br />

the outdoors in. “We warmed up the<br />

entire house with natural elements, such<br />

as driftwood shelving, antler-inspired<br />

chandeliers, and lots of different textures,”<br />

says the homeowner.<br />

These elements work nicely within the<br />

home’s bright, airy floor plan that captures<br />

views of the outdoors from every angle. “Our<br />

goal is to create open and livable floor plans<br />

for our clients that minimize wasted space,”<br />

explains the home’s builder, Gordon White,<br />

president and founder of G.A. White Homes.<br />

Distinctive details<br />

The color palette leans toward a series of<br />

sophisticated whites and natural wood colors.<br />

The white is juxtaposed by black tones<br />

throughout, including black outlines around all<br />

the windows. “The black is the accent theme to<br />

the house,” explains the homeowner.<br />

“We pride ourselves on the distinctive details<br />

of our houses, putting unique and different<br />

ideas in each,” Gordon explains. “Every house<br />

is individual to that owner. We never build the<br />

same thing twice.” That unique attention to<br />

detail translates to interiors as well, because<br />

the company has an in-house interior design<br />

team to help with everything from furniture<br />

to fixtures.<br />

In this home, the homeowners wanted to create<br />

visual interest by incorporating decorative<br />

ceilings, such as the one in the great room. The<br />

great room also features 30 feet of Palladian<br />

windows overlooking the outdoors, as well as<br />

free-floating shelves with hidden LED strip<br />

lights for cleverly concealed accent lighting,<br />

lending an elegant look to the shiplap wall<br />

behind the shelves. The caramel colors within<br />

the room compliment the hue of the wood<br />

table and flooring.<br />

➻<br />

housetrends magazine <strong>2021</strong> 31

Open kitchen concept<br />

The adjacent kitchen has white quartz countertops and a tone-on-tone textured<br />

white backsplash, but also has dark accents, including on the island, bar<br />

stools, and light fixtures. The spacious black oak table in the eating area ties<br />

all those colors together, and this space connects to the deck, perfect for entertaining,<br />

and showcases more spectacular outdoor views.<br />

“I love to entertain,” says the homeowner, “and I can easily pull the plates out<br />

of the built-in to set the table.” She’s referring to the open shelving and closed<br />

cabinetry in her dining room. As for the kitchen, it’s a cook’s paradise, with a<br />

48-inch range and half a dozen burners, two ovens below and many other topof-the-line<br />

appliances. ➻<br />

Lower level lushness<br />

There are additional appliances in the lower<br />

level, which feels like anything but a basement.<br />

With a double bar, beverage center<br />

and wine chiller, this space is rivaled by the<br />

glass-enclosed wine room, which is the first<br />

thing one sees when descending the stairs<br />

and which sets the tone for the entire space.<br />

Free-floating wine racks are mounted to a wall<br />

of whitewashed cedar. “We have visited Napa<br />

and enjoy nice wines with our family and<br />

friends. The builder designed this space to fit<br />

our specific needs,” explains the homeowner.<br />

Owners’ suite with a view<br />

The spacious master bedroom and bath exude<br />

a tranquil vibe. The wood treatment on the<br />

back wall of the bedroom brings warmth to<br />

the room and pulls all the tones within the<br />

room together. The mirror-fronted chest has<br />

handles comprised of GeoStones, creating an<br />

artist statement not unlike those made by<br />

the artwork throughout the rest of the house<br />

and in the master bath. The bath also has a<br />

free-floating tub sitting behind the shower,<br />

which features dual access and no doors. Both<br />

the bedroom and bath overlook the pond and<br />

fountain, for a pleasing view to begin each day.<br />

The home’s laundry room and entryway off<br />

the garage are not short on custom details,<br />

with custom-designed cubbies, built-in and<br />

retractable shelving, pull-out drawers, and<br />

much more, creating versatile convenience.<br />

“We wanted a home that is comfortable and<br />

livable,” says the homeowner.<br />

“We don’t limit ourselves,” explains Gordon.<br />

“We go all over the country to find new and<br />

innovate ideas.” He says his favorite part of<br />

the homebuilding process is being able to<br />

exercise his creativity. “You’re starting with<br />

a piece of ground, the natural landscape, and<br />

designing a product that will be there for<br />

years to come.” ➻<br />

New tile replaced the old flooring and its coverage was extended into the living area for an even more practical solution.<br />

Kitchen<br />

Shines<br />

with mid-century style<br />


When the long-time owners of a mid-century<br />

modern home in the <strong>Columbus</strong> neighborhood<br />

of Upper Arlington were ready to update their<br />

kitchen, it was important to them that the style of<br />

the remodel be in sync with the architecture of<br />

the house.<br />

That was their primary focus when they called<br />

J.S. Brown & Co., the team that had completed<br />

two earlier renovations in their home. When they<br />

met with designer Monica Lewis there were a<br />

few other requests that would influence the new<br />

design as well. ➻<br />

housetrends magazine <strong>2021</strong> 39

About two years prior, the owners had installed several high-end appliances—including<br />

a Sub-Zero glass-door refrigerator and a Wolf range—<br />

and they wanted to keep these in play. Plus, their place is home to a golden<br />

retriever and the terracotta tile floors were well-tested and appreciated for<br />

the fact that they were low-maintenance and easy to clean. For that reason,<br />

they wanted to extend the tile into the adjacent living area as well.<br />

Taking in those parameters and the kitchen’s U-shaped footprint, Lewis<br />

was ready to begin.<br />

“The first thing we did was rework the layout of the appliances,” the<br />

designer says. “The range had previously been placed tight into a blind<br />

corner. We moved it down to the middle of the run along the wall.” The<br />

only appliance that needed to be added was a Sharp microwave drawer.<br />

On the wall adjacent to the refrigerator, there used to be a big storage<br />

area with bypass doors. That was replaced with a bank of floor-to-ceiling<br />

cabinetry with alcoves for displaying favorite pieces from the homeowner’s<br />

ceramic collection.<br />

The lower cabinets are frameless with a flat paneled door and made of<br />

a durable, impact-resistant, thermally fused laminate. Upper cabinets flip<br />

open and stay up and out of the way while cooks work. Their aluminum<br />

frames are inset with a clear, but textured, glass that was custom etched<br />

by the artisans at Franklin Art Glass so the view of the contents would be<br />

more diffused.<br />

“I love that the homeowner went with that horizontal format on the<br />

cabinets,” Lewis says. “In fact, I like the horizontal feel of the whole kitchen.<br />

It was fun to do something that was in keeping with the architecture of the<br />

house.”<br />

Living in a V<br />

Formation<br />

Indian Hill contemporary shapes itself<br />

around the view<br />


Typically, when you see a sleek, contemporary home,<br />

you don’t imagine a scene with young children running<br />

throughout the space. But don’t be fooled by the crisp,<br />

minimalistic style of this 8,000-square-foot Indian Hill home.<br />

It was very much designed with family living in mind.<br />

“I wish it looked as good right now as it does in these photos,” the homeowner says. With a four-year-old<br />

son, a seven-year-old daughter and a dog, this home sees plenty of occasions of clutter and chaos, but the<br />

design and selections were carefully planned to accommodate all the residents, as well as the family and<br />

friends who visit them. ➻<br />

Coming home<br />

After living in the San Francisco Bay<br />

area for 14 years, the owner and his<br />

wife, whom he met and married while<br />

living there, decided to raise their<br />

family back in his hometown.<br />

“We lived in a contemporary home<br />

and wanted a similar set up here, but<br />

couldn’t find the style we wanted,” he<br />

says. “We ended up building in Mt.<br />

Adams. We loved it there but once<br />

our oldest was ready for school, we<br />

wanted her to go to the same school I<br />

went to. Plus, we wanted our children<br />

to have plenty of space to run around<br />

and play.”<br />

So, a little over two years ago, they<br />

chose to build again.<br />

A logical launch point<br />

While often the initial contact in<br />

building a home of this scope might<br />

be the architect, this process actually<br />

began with a phone call to builder<br />

Andy Hueber. Andy’s father, builder<br />

John Hueber, and the homeowner’s<br />

father were long-time friends. “We<br />

knew the Huebers would be fantastic<br />

to work with,” the owner says.<br />

Andy and his brother Marc, joined<br />

their father’s business in 2002 and<br />

their team builds homes that run the<br />

gamut between traditional and contemporary.<br />

“One common misperception<br />

is that people perceive builders<br />

in a similar manner as they do<br />

actors,” Hueber says. “They typecast<br />

us as having a certain style,” But in<br />

reality, we read the blueprints and<br />

build the house our clients want.”<br />

To provide those blueprints, the<br />

couple asked Hueber to recommend<br />

an architect. Luke Field with Platte<br />

Architecture and Design made that<br />

1<br />

3<br />

4<br />

short list. “We worked with Luke in<br />

the past and liked what he brought<br />

to the table,” says Hueber. “He was a<br />

really good fit for this project.”<br />

The couple met with the Platte<br />

team and said work they had done—<br />

residential and even some of their<br />

commercial projects—fit their style.<br />

After giving them a few ideas to get<br />

the ball rolling, the Platte team took<br />

it from there.<br />

The architect says the five-acre site<br />

inspired the placement of the home.<br />

“The owner chose a very nice lot.<br />

With its topography, it just seemed<br />

natural to orient the house so that it<br />

opened up to the valley on the south<br />

side."<br />

To design the home’s physical structure,<br />

the Platte architects used the 3D<br />

software SketchUp. “That allowed us<br />

to quickly iterate designs and visualize<br />

them to keep the surprise factor<br />

down,” Field says. The owners could<br />

see a virtual rendition of the home on<br />

a screen in the Platte office.<br />

“It’s amazing how close the renderings<br />

were to the actual outcome,” the<br />

owner says. ➻<br />

Bridging the gap<br />

The house was designed in a modified “V” shape, with<br />

the front door being at the point of the V and wings<br />

of the home running off to the left and right. The left<br />

wing houses the master suite on the first floor and his<br />

and her offices on the second. The second-floor children’s<br />

wing is reached via a bridge with a glass inset.<br />

Hueber says the initial plans allowed for glass railings<br />

for the bridge and that the idea for the glass floor came<br />

from the homeowners.<br />

“That bridge was my wife’s idea,” the owner says. “She<br />

wanted to spice things up a bit.” The original concept<br />

called for the bridge’s floor to be totally made of glass,<br />

but “it was a bit scary with the kids.”<br />

The team compromised with a glass panel inset that<br />

allows for a bit of adventure and a view of the great<br />

room below. “That glass is 1-1/2 inches thick, Hueber<br />

says. “It’s virtually bulletproof.”<br />

In between both wings is an open-concept, living,<br />

dining, kitchen area all with wide-open views of the surrounding<br />

landscape. There are plenty of floor-to-ceiling<br />

windows that afford a sweeping view of the valley and<br />

the woods beyond.<br />

2<br />

More space for fun<br />

In addition to a dedicated toy room on the lower level<br />

and a second-floor media room, dubbed the “Netflix”<br />

room by the family, the kids and the dog have full run<br />

of the site, which happens to be surrounded by a greenbelt.<br />

But there are plenty of options regardless of age.<br />

One of the owner’s favorite spaces for relaxing is the<br />

expansive outdoor living area that is sheltered beneath<br />

a warm cedar ceiling. A series of electric radiant heaters<br />

installed flush in ceiling are controlled remotely<br />

through a Lutron app on their phones.<br />

“We can be out here in the dead of winter and it feels<br />

like we are watching TV inside,” the owner says.<br />

“As we were designing that space, I could see a lot of<br />

life happening out there,” Field says. In addition to that<br />

25 by 25-foot covered space there are multiple layers<br />

of outdoor gathering spots. “We wanted to create different<br />

zones that corresponded to different functions.”<br />

There’s a 40 by 18-foot open patio, a balcony off the<br />

homeowner’s office and a 35 by 25-foot pool deck.<br />

The heated pool is another family favorite that<br />

stretches its season of use from spring to fall. “We open<br />

it as early as possible and keep it open as late as possible,”<br />

the owner says. ➻<br />

bedrooms and play area. 3 Heaters installed flush<br />

kitchen or covered patio.<br />

The view from beyond<br />

The view of the home from beyond<br />

the pool showcases cedar soffits that<br />

add layers of warmth to what might<br />

have otherwise been a rather stark<br />

stone and zinc exterior. “We looked<br />

at a variety of products for those<br />

soffits,” says Hueber. “We wanted<br />

something in natural earthy tones<br />

to create a visual balance. After the<br />

homeowner sent me a photo of a<br />

home she’d seen with a similar treatment,<br />

we chose to use a select grade<br />

cedar that has a smooth texture—<br />

without a lot of knots.”<br />

It’s this view of the home, from the<br />

top of the “V” so to speak, that is a<br />

particular favorite of the homeowner.<br />

Living proof<br />

Not too long ago, the builder needed<br />

to drop something off at this home<br />

and was greeted—very warmly and<br />

politely—at the front door by the<br />

homeowners’ young son. “It was<br />

great to see this sign of a life going<br />

on in a structure we helped create, he<br />

says. “That’s the most rewarding part<br />

of this process.” ➻<br />

Master Suite<br />

embraces the view<br />


Like many homeowners, a northwest <strong>Columbus</strong> couple let other projects bump their<br />

wish for an open, airy master suite way down to the bottom of their list. But 24 years<br />

after they purchased their home, and their three children were grown, they were finally<br />

ready to build the retreat of their dreams. ➻<br />

A swing for two is located on the softly lighted deck just outside the bedroom.<br />

housetrends magazine <strong>2021</strong> 53

1<br />

1 A wide doorway and an elevated toilet are just a few of the space’s universal design elements.<br />

To help realize their goal they called upon the talents of<br />

the remodeling and design team at The Cleary Company.<br />

“The homeowners were clear as to what they wanted,”<br />

says interior designer Laura Watson. “She wanted a bathtub—the<br />

original space did not have one, and he wanted<br />

a shower that was bright and open and almost felt like<br />

you were showering outdoors. Plus, the existing bath was<br />

extremely dark and dated. The windows were tiny.”<br />

When you step into their completely updated space it’s<br />

evident the years of planning paid off. A major goal of<br />

the renovation was to take advantage of the lush outdoor<br />

scenery of their property and introduce it into the room<br />

as a calm, inviting element. This is achieved with a small<br />

bump-out addition that allowed for a bit more space to<br />

maneuver. Floor-to-ceiling windows were added on the<br />

northern-facing wall in the bedroom and bath areas—<br />

even in the shower.<br />

A deep air jet tub allows for soaks in front of a picture<br />

window and an oversized shower has all the bells and<br />

whistles for lighting, music and temperature control. Its<br />

zero entry, along with wide doorways and a floating vanity,<br />

ensure the bathroom will be accessible as the couple<br />

ages in place.<br />

To allow for the enjoyment of the wide-open views<br />

with a feeling of privacy, The Cleary Company team<br />

erected a nine-foot high stucco wall around a 19 by 32-<br />

foot section of the yard and created an intimate courtyard.<br />

A deck built of Zuri, a low-maintenance composite<br />

material, works as a transition space between the bedroom<br />

and the courtyard. Two short steps lead the couple<br />

into their pea-gravel courtyard which is shaded by a large<br />

multi-stemmed maple tree.<br />

Strategically placed landscape lighting and assorted<br />

water features add the necessary sights and sounds to<br />

make this an inviting escape day or night.<br />

Showing her appreciation, the homeowner recently<br />

sent the contractor this note. “I love my bathroom! Best<br />

way ever to end a day in the tub watching the snowfall.<br />

So grateful!”<br />

Within the recent exciting coverage<br />

of Perseverance’s landing on Mars,<br />

you may have seen the side story<br />

on NASA’s deputy project manager<br />

for the rover, Jennifer Trosper. Like<br />

many of us across the globe, Trosper<br />

has been working remotely since<br />

the early days of the pandemic. And<br />

again, like many of us, she is carving<br />

space out of her home to dedicate<br />

to her work. While her children were<br />

remote learning in other rooms and<br />

the occasional load of clothes ran<br />

through the rinse cycle or tumbled<br />

in the dryer, Trosper set up her base<br />

for mission control from a small desk<br />

inside her home’s laundry room.<br />

While our roles during this may not be quite as exciting<br />

as Trosper’s, our solutions for workspace can be<br />

just as creative. Those of us who are fortunate enough<br />

to have a study in our home, are dusting off the desk<br />

and shelving and bringing these areas up to date with<br />

technology. The rest of us are finding areas for quiet<br />

contemplation or chaotic Zoom calling, in guest rooms,<br />

dining rooms, unfinished basements, and more.<br />

Here are some home office ideas—ranging from<br />

modest to grand—that might offer you a tip or two on<br />

how to make your remote work more productive and<br />

enjoyable.<br />

Bath Remodel<br />

is worth the wait<br />


When a Dublin couple was finally ready to transfer their master bath into a contemporary<br />

spa-like space, they knew just where to go to get the process started. After undertaking<br />

five previous remodeling projects in a seven-year span, they wanted to continue their<br />

home renovation journey with the team that got them this far. Enter, or actually re-enter,<br />

the team at Dave Fox Design-Build Remodelers. ➻<br />

The floating vanity has drawers rather than cabinets to maximize storage space.

“These long-time clients had prioritized<br />

other projects throughout the<br />

rest of their home for years and were<br />

finally ready to invest in a modern<br />

oasis that was all their own,” says<br />

designer Michelle Mixter.<br />

When the design phase began, the<br />

words “modern” and “clean” were<br />

introduced often into the conversation.<br />

As to specifics, the couple wanted<br />

to maximize storage space, eliminate<br />

an unsafe, bulky tub deck, and<br />

install a generously-sized shower and<br />

tub to accommodate an especially tall<br />

homeowner.<br />

To give the couple room to maneuver,<br />

Mixter dedicated literally half of<br />

the room’s square footage to a wet<br />

room area. The original design had a<br />

lot of wasted space and featured an<br />

awkward shared shower and toilet<br />

room. Moving the shower into the<br />

main part of the bathroom gained<br />

enough space for a new linen closet.<br />

The tub was replaced with a custom<br />

74-inch bathtub and the shower<br />

space was designed without walls on<br />

two of its sides for plenty of elbow<br />

room.<br />

“The vanity wall was designed as a<br />

focal point,” Mixter says. “It needed<br />

to be dramatic to balance the oversized<br />

tub and shower area.”<br />

1<br />

2<br />

1 The matte tile flooring in the shower<br />

area was treated with a coating to make<br />

the surface especially slip resistant. 2 A<br />

custom tub was ordered to fit tight in the<br />

corner so that more space could be dedicated<br />

to the shower area.

The designer found a light fixture<br />

she and the homeowners liked, but<br />

as a single pendant, it didn’t have<br />

enough of a presence. Once she discovered<br />

that the pendants could be<br />

clustered, she placed them in groups<br />

of five and says “it made all of the difference<br />

in the world.”<br />

While the bulk of the space is covered<br />

in a large format porcelain tile,<br />

a glossy glass subway tile was chosen<br />

as a backdrop for the vanity to create<br />

contrast and drama. The backlighting<br />

of the mirror, the motion-activated<br />

toe kick lights, and those eye-catching<br />

light fixtures add layers of glow in<br />

this crisp, contemporary space.<br />
