Contemporary yet Historical
With the goal to honor the era of the home while being historically correct, the homeowners of this fabulous master bath enlisted the help of Joni Spear, Joni Spear Interior Design, when adding a three-story addition on their University City home. The new bath addition allowed for a spacious master bath, thanks to the help of the architect and engineer who crafted the floor plans. The Ann Sacks honed marble floor in Asher Gray immediately draws one into the space. Each tile had to be hand cut and configured into the herringbone pattern. The result is a dramatic punch to the serene space. A Toulouse Victoria and Albert Soaking tub sits under a large window. A contemporary floor mounted tub fill by Jado is affixed to the right of the tub. Grohe fittings, Ginger accessories and Robern medicine cabinets complete the look.

Why the judges love it:
This bath perfectly fits the period of the home with a splash of contemporary. The sliding doors, floor tile and tub make for a dramatic entrance. The dark contrast of the vanities with the all white is nice and gives the space a handsome feel.
