Below are photos of elements of the design for our main bath remodel. Some photos are of an element in use in another home, some are from our home because we are using similar materials for the sake of continuity and harmony of design. In other cases, I have tried to choose examples that are similar enough to what we are doing to give readers a feel for what the final result will be.
We have been in this house for eight years and that entire time I have wanted to do this, but there were so many other projects in front of it because the bathroom as it is was functional, if inadequate. We made the best of it. Happily, putting up with that condition is about to end.

Ark Shower Screen, will be in Oil Rubbed Bronze
Antique Bronze Travertine Tiles & Fallingwater Slate Tile
Here is the accent slate, United Tile “Fallingwater” Desert Gold which will be used as an accent in the shower.
Dan remodeled our Master Bathroom in December 2011. The copper sink & mirror, faucet and Silestone counter are all materials that will make their way into our Main bathroom, but the cabinetry is changing because we met a fabulous cabinet maker & designer team. (Note: We used a different quartz countertop)
Hammered Copper Sink & Hanstone Quartz Countertop
Roger Foggia & Marie Josee Salva’s beautiful cabinetry in Sapele & African Mahogany will be used for both the vanity and for a panel for the front of the bath.
(http://www.handbuiltwell.com) The Silestone will rest on top of the tub and be fronted by the wooden panel. It will be so elegant!
Here is Dan’s Preliminary Sketch
The bathtub is on it’s way here. The cabinet maker is ready to begin. We expect that we will be getting our hands busy within a few weeks. Can’t wait!
