Master Bath Over $50,000 – KBDA 2017 Gold Winner
Lori Carroll & Alexander Burch, Lori Carroll & Associates, Tucson, AZ
Curves and angles have long added interest to kitchen and bath designs. While they can sometimes make a contemporary space seem stark, the right combination can add drama and warmth.
This Oro Valley, AZ master bath is the pinnacle of such a space, with curves caressing squares and rectangles at every turn. Lori Carroll and co-designer Alexander Burch of Lori Carroll & Associates created this 347-sq.-ft. oasis for clients who were looking for a mix of modern and casual style with a relaxing aesthetic.
The focal point showcases dual-sided wall-mount “block” lavatories, where Lacava sculptural white vessel sinks hang gracefully from blocks finished with The Tile Shop’s Metallic Glaze Porcelain tile. The sinks are paired with Puravida Single Hole Faucets from Hansgrohe, sitting just below a Jura Grey Limestone floating countertop from Arizona Tile. Open shelving is incorporated on both sides, and a suspended, dual-sided mirror serves as a room partition, with LBL Tube 2 lighting on each side.
A storage system featuring Italian White Oak Veneer cabinetry from Stone River Studios includes open shelving with baskets. Deep drawers were added to store small personal items and toiletries to reduce clutter.
Beyond the sink area, Lacava’s Ovale Freestanding Soaking Tub takes advantage of the floor-to-ceiling windows. The contemporary silhouette of Hansgrohe’s Puravida Freestanding Tub Filler complements the space.
The Imola Koshi Dark Grey rectangular tile flooring changes when entering the bathing area, moving up to the walls of the curved open shower. The Metallic Glaze Porcelain tile is continued on the walls, bordered within the wall design by Bronzeworks Beach Grass Liner. The shower delivers a spa-like experience via the Puravida Rainshower, Handshower and Bodysprays from Hansgrohe.
Completing the space are a Kohler Persuade Circ Dual Flush Toilet with Elongated Bowl, Motiv Sine Collection hardware from Ginger and Bruck Scobo Sconces.
