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.
