Beautiful Baths by Tracery

Yesterday we shared some details of an amazing bathroom in the 2009 Southern Living Tarpon Run Idea House, and today we thought we’d show a few more beautiful baths from our portfolio.  Bathrooms are such a great place to take a chance and choose an unusual color or finish you wouldn’t necessarily want to use in a larger space.  We’ve designed everything from lavish Moroccan style oasis to sleek contemporary retreats–always with an eye on the details and fixture selections that can make a bathroom truly unique.

This Master Bath in a renovated Spanish Colonial style home in the Hollywood neighborhood of Homewood, Alabama features a room devoted solely to an iconic soaking tub from Waterworks.  The Tub Room connects the Master Bedroom to an area with vanities, a shower and toilet compartment.

Architect Louis Nequette had the brilliant idea to wrap glass around the two sides and abovethe Master Bath vanities, bathing the area in natural light.  Tiny mosaic travertine tiles are used in similarly sized niches in the steam shower on the opposite wall.  [photos by Colleen Duffley]

 

In the Master Bath of a Rosemary Beach, Florida villa, Paige selected handmade Moroccan tile to bring color and interest.

The white rectangular vessel sinks and soaking tub bring a crispness to the space and serve as a wonderful contrast to the hand-made irregularity of the tile’s surface.

In the Master Bathroom of an Auburn, Alabama home the mood is much more classic and subdued.  Pale blue walls and crisp white cabinetry makes this space feel fresh and relaxing.

The paneled wall separates His and Hers vanity areas and provides a focal point from the Bedroom.

In the Guest Bathroom of a renovated 1929 Tudor Revival home in Mountain Brook, Alabama, we used one of our favorite materials:  white Carrara marble.  Paige designed a tile ‘rug’ for the room and then selected white marble moulding to case the shower door.  Doug detailed white paneling that maintains a period-appropriate feeling in the room and which conceals a ‘secret’ closet door in a panel.

Rather than design a wall of cabinetry, we placed a rectangular washbasin by LaCava atop a painted wood cabinet and then added a free standing dressing table with a skirted white chair.  An antique iron pendant fixture completes the room.

Every one’s talking about the saffron-colored barn door in the Southern Living Tarpon Run Idea House, which separates one of the Bedrooms from an adjacent Bath.  Beyond, a contemporary tub sits below a delicate crystal chandelier.

Flannel grey walls blend beautifully with another white Cararra marble floor.  Paige and Anna Kay selected a piece of local photography to hang above the tub.

    Thanks, we love that bathroom too! We don’t reveal our paint colors and other details on our blog out of fairness to our clients who paid for us to make those selections. A lot of the time we custom mix our paint colors anyway, so there’s often not an easy answer as to what the paint chip # is.

    • We typically use white oak (ideally reclaimed antique oak)…I have plain old strip oak in my house that was stripped and refinished with a dark stain similar to what you see in the first couple of photos here. -doug
