Mt Baker Classic
We were asked to re-imagine two bathrooms in this stately manor home. The goal was to fully update the dated bathrooms, peeling back years of awkward re-dos and allowing for the function of modern life. Most importantly for our client, the final result needed to appear as if the new versions could have been original to the home.
Situated off a paneled great hall, the powder room was taken down to the studs to save the original white classic hex tile and radiator, which were kept to maintain just the right amount of original patina. We took cues for the new oak paneling from other parts of the house, designing Tudor style arches within the panels where the wall mounted un-lacquered brass faucets sit. The cornerstone of the room is a custom trough Arabesco marble sink made locally from one full slab of marble. Lastly, the water closet walls are covered in a hand painted silk De Gournay wallpaper.
The 2nd bathroom we fully renovated was upstairs in the home. Again, the stonework is the centerpiece with Bianco Carrara marble shaped into a countertop and backsplash over vintage style brass legs and shelves. Everyday necessities are tucked behind a pair of antique 19th century French mirrors custom made into medicine cabinets (with electrical to hide tooth brushes inside!). At the shower, an arched detail was designed which is flanked by marble slabs and tile within.
