Cool & Soothing
Lori Carroll, Lori Carroll & Associates, Tucson, AZ
Lori Carroll of Lori Carroll & Associates in Tucson, AZ was tasked with transforming this new
custom home’s master bath into one that
reflected a fine resort. The result was a 207-sq.-ft. space that incorporates classic, timeless materials and luxurious amenities.
The bathroom is as refined as the outdoor surroundings of the Saguaros of the Sonoran desert are unpolished. The Keystone marble – honed on the floor and polished on the countertops and shower walls – provides elegant yet natural appeal.
The Waterworks Keystone tile used throughout the room includes Venato, Bardiglio Light and Stacked Mosaic Venato Honed. The waterfall countertops feature Cactus Stone White Lightning Marble wrapping around Rings of Wood custom American walnut cabinetry, custom crafted with horizontal graining. The darker tone and patterns in the wood add warmth to the design, while the lighter tones of the marble preserve the sense of openness the room provides. Each of the facing vanities also includes Manzoni hardware, and Kohler Verticyl sink paired with Dornbracht’s Supernova Lavatory Faucet. Ilex Apollo LED Sconces flank the vanities.
A glass shower partition and door enhances the open feel of the room and allows the marble of the shower space to shine through. In the corner, a bench sits below a corner picture window that accesses the spectacular outdoor view. Dornbracht’s Supernova Handshower, Performing Water Big Rain and Body Spray add function and style here, and the built-in shelving and niches add spacious storage.
Tucked beneath another large window, the freestanding MTI Andrea 5 Soaking Tub gets the marble treatment via a tub deck. The tub is teamed with a Dornbracht tub filler with handshower, and built-in niches provide convenient storage for soaps and toiletries.
A Kohler Persuade Curv Toilet and Seat are also included in the bath, and Dornbracht accessories such as a towel bar, tissue holder and robe hook finish off the space.
