There are times where more is more in the renovation of small spaces, and we have to be willing to shout. This master suite is one of those moments that turned an "Old Portland" space in to something much more audible. Step in and take a peek at our process for creating this whimsical space:
When we came to this project, our clients master suite was a bit fragmented. A small bedroom had been converted to a closet, but was detached from the master suite. The master bath was shared with the rest of the floor of the home, and needed to be updated.
We started with restructuring the floor plan- creating the entrance to the walk-in closet in the master suite, and rearranging the bath and original closets to become a new bath space.
In the new bath, we covered the floor, surfaces and walls with Statuario marble, because more is more. A deep, free standing soaking tub, enclosed shower and custom 18 inch depth cabinetry complete the space.
As you move through the bright and vivid bath to adjoining water closet, we also move from white to black. The water closet here, separated with a pocket door, was created for guests. With the door closed, natural light pours through the privacy glass. In contrast to the bright marble, we used Cole and Son Acquario wallpaper in black, and the cabinetry and woodwork were custom matched. With an emphasis on connection, you will notice that the lighting, floors and counter materials are the same throughout both rooms.
For the walk-in closet, we enclosed the external hallway door making the entrance accessible from the master bedroom. Custom built-ins and crown molding complete the room.
