When Lynn and David Clanton decided to downsize, the one thing they didn’t want to give up was a spacious, luxurious bath. “I still wanted each of us to have our own, separate areas for getting ready in the mornings and for storing things,” says Lynn. With that request in mind, Twin Construction designed a symmetrical plan with his-and-her vanities flanking the freestanding, soaking tub. “The space used to be a bedroom, so we had plenty of room to create this custom layout,” says designer Danielle Robin.

Things We Love

Natural Light and Privacy
“We placed windows up high above the tub to bring in plenty of sunlight without sacrificing privacy,” says Danielle. “Lynn especially liked the fact that she would not need to cover the windows with shades.”

Classic Materials Used in New Ways
Nothing ups the luxe quotient like marble, and this bath offers plenty of it. To add some visual interest, Danielle used the material in unique ways, starting with the herringbone pattern of the floor. A marble backsplash behind the tub takes the place of adds a feminine touch with its sculptural curves.

Polished Nickel Finishes
”I wanted this space to have some warmth, so I chose polished nickel finishes,” says Danielle. “They not only work well with the warm, wood stain of the cabinets, but they also add a classic feel to the room.”
