See How A Serene Palette & Soaker Tub Create A Spa-Like Principal Bathroom
“Who doesn’t love relaxing in a big tub after a long day?” says Toronto designer Shauna Walton, who was enlisted to give this 110-square-foot principal bedroom a much-needed facelift. The young homeowners, who had just bought their forever home, wanted to update the dark space with fresh, minimalist finishes.
This spa-like space features a host of self-care amenities including a generous 94-inch-wide vanity complete with custom dividers for one client’s blow-dryer and curling iron, and a gorgeous freestanding tub. A delicate seeded eucalyptus sprig adds to the zen vibe. “We went with neutrals and natural materials to keep it calming and coordinate with the rest of the house,” says Shauna of the serene palette. “Less is more when creating timeless, restful spaces.”
She removed a huge built-in Jacuzzi tub, making room for a larger stand-alone shower, then added a stunning feature wall behind the new tub with herringbone-patterned marble tile and a ledge for art and bubble bath.
How They Did It
- Neutral palette with hits of nickel, brass and black
- Dramatically veined Statuario marble floor tile
- Graphic abstract art
- Herringbone-pattern Dolomite tile and niche in shower
