Ocean-View Bath Features Clean Lines

Described by designer Elizabeth A. Rosensteel of Phoenix-based Elizabeth Rosensteel Design/Studio as “sparsely adorned and elegantly comfortable,” this ocean view master bath features repeating shapes and forms.

A floating vanity, suspended self-illuminated mirror and long, sloping Lacava tub mimic the shape of the sink, also from Lacava. Accents include a Jerusalem Stone floor and countertops in Wenge wood and glass.

“Abundant in function and form, this peaceful retreat relies on a precise and minimalistic approach,” says Rosensteel, who worked on the design with co-designer Meredith Comfort.

Most importantly, according to Rosensteel, the new design offers two things the old design did not: a maximum view of the ocean and comfortable access from the bedroom.

Bath Combines Form, Function & Indulgence

This cool gray master bath was designed to be a tranquil retreat.

“From the dual-sided fireplace and steam shower, to the freestanding Victoria + Albert tub and accents of the client’s personal art collection, it offers a highly personalized and pampered [experience],” says designer Christine Salas, CKD, CBD, of Calgary, AB-based Cocina Interior Design.

The space features CaesarStone countertops, a Steamist steam shower, Toto’s Aquia toilet and custom solid cherry cabinetry.

Bath Aligns Indoors & Out

Designer John A. Granato II, CKD, of Syracuse, NY-based Master Designs, was charged with turning one of four second-floor bedrooms into a contemporary master bath.

The opening from the bedroom is aligned with a new window that is situated over a deep Victoria & Albert soaking tub.

“The location of both allows the homeowners a view of their picturesque landscape while still reclining in bed,” says Granato.

The Kraftmaid cabinetry is elevated to evoke a lighter, less rooted feeling. Faucets and fixtures are by Danze from its Sirius Series. Toto’s Carolina toilet is located in a non-isolated water closet on the other side of a custom glass-and-chrome shower.
