lakeside master bath

The whole point of having a lake house is being able to get away.  When we designed the Master Bath of this home located at Lake Martin near Alexander City, Alabama, we were sure to make the room as spa-like and serene as possible.

Because the main part of the bathroom is open to the adjacent bedroom, Paige and Anna Kay decided to use a piece of furniture as a sink base to tie the two spaces together.  Crafted of oak with a whitewashed finish, this piece by Bobo Intriguing Objects is actually intended to be used as a console table.  Because the ceilings are so high in the room, we were able to use full length floor mirrors from Oly Studio above each sink which adds a lot of drama to the space.

To make up for storage space lost by the open sink base, we placed an antique French cabinet on the opposite wall.  We added fabric panels behind the chickenwire door inserts.


Next to the vanity area is a spacious area tiled from floor to ceiling in Thassos, a beautiful sparkly white variety of marble.  An intricate border of charcoal and white marble runs around the center of the wall.

Within this space is a nickel-plated soaking tub at one end, and dual shower heads at the other.  Grey linen cafe curtains provide privacy without blocking views of the lake beyond.  A small beaded chandelier hanging over the tub adds some softness to the space and makes this space much more than just a typical shower.  A serene getaway indeed.

  1. Now you have thrown the cat amongst the pidgeons!
    I thought I’d decided, after hours of deliberation, on the 3 hole taps(faucets) for my new bathroom and then I saw the ones in this post. I like ! Also your comment about using floor length mirrors over the sink has opened up more possibilities. Back to the drawing board for me. Not sure if I should be thanking you or not.


  2. I LOVE the console table used as the sink vanity.I really like the lines of the legs of the table. I also really like it when you use a crystal chandelier in the bathroom. Just a beautiful room, as always, Tracery.


  3. Amazing job! I’m digging the look of the drippy, chandelier-like sconces. The custom vanity is quite a fete. And the area with the tub is my favorite. I especially like how you used the mosaic band to break up the wall. The linen curtain is a perfect complement.
