Shiny and bling aren’t always associated with luxury spa bathroom descriptions, but this Carmel homeowner confidently knew that when styled with soft colors and elegant elements … spa would prevail. And it did!!


After exhaustive research, we ordered the vanity online through Wayfair and pushed those savings toward upgraded shower and floor tile. Perhaps the quality was not quite as impressive as hoped, yet the quality construction prevailed and confidently carries through to the included gray marbled counter and rectangular porcelain sinks. The modern feel is a statement and is echoed throughout.


The impact of a talented interior decorator on remodel projects always thrills me, especially in master bathrooms and kitchens. Their gift of coordinating colors to create mood and drama is the difference between good and fantastic, with the slightest details pulling it all together. A “shout out” to Jamie Gauker at J. Gauker Interiors for her recent guidance.

Notice the current definition of stainless steel on the sink faucets which carried over to the fixtures on the retro-fitted soaking tub and massive shower protected by a frameless 5’x7’ frosted glass panel. Very dramatic. Let’s look at that beauty another time!

Until then … think spa and how luxurious it could feel in your home.
