The wainscoting of Portuguese glazed tiles has been set up by the former proprietor decorator. "Are not they magnificent?" Says designer Joe Nye. He slipcovered the side chair in a blue-and-white linen stripe that was complementary.
HIS AND HERS SINKS
In an open-air Kenya home, designer Suzanne Kasler insisted on dual sinks, a transatlantic amenity she understood the American owners could miss.
Back in the 18th-century when this Massachusetts farmhouse was constructed, there was no such thing for a master tub. So architect Michael T. Gray and interior designer Hattie Holland carved one from a hallway and extra wainscoting and window casings to make a sense of the past.
In a Palm Beach home, the master bath walls have been painted a habit watery blue. Homeowner Liza Pulitzer Calhoun chose the cast-iron claw-foot tub since it seems "so favorable."
"I love cherry flowers," says designer Caroline Beaupere. "This master bathroom in a house in New Jersey was inspired by hanami, the Japanese tradition of going to see the blossoms as part of a celebration of spring."
Having a pair of French doors which open up to a balcony, designer Barry Dixon fashioned a Washington D.C. bathroom to be the home spa. The corner table is when lounging in a bathrobe for sipping.
The beach is right outside this California house, however you never would have understood it based on its former dim, compact design. Designer Daleet Spector added windows to let in more light and reconfigured the space. "The customers do not like a lot of colour, so we worked with different textures rather," she states.
"I wanted drama!" Says designer SuzAnn Kletzien of this bath. She notes that the modern, jewelry-inspired chandelier over the claw-foot tub "certainly satisfied that desire."
