Her Bathroom

The clients requested that two master bathrooms be provided.  The entry vestibule to the master bedroom is provided by (borrowed) natural light by means of a frosted art glass window placed in her shower.  The glass pattern is based upon an early William Morris wallpaper design used in the Master Bedroom.  The ceiling is finished in an off-white venetian plaster.  Her bathroom is located in a semi-circular bay with views of Lake Michigan beyond.  Shower and toilet areas are compartmentalized, and the main space is provided with a makeup area, bath and vanity.  The floor is made up of marble mosaics, whereas the walls are finished in calacutta marble panels and mosaics.  Sycamore trim and cabinetry were used for their delicate grain and warmth.  The silver art nouveau ceiling fixture dates from the early 1900’s, and was purchased from a home in England.

The Study

The Study is located on the second floor, near the master bedroom. The room is provided with an outdoor terrace, built over the breakfast room below. Finished primarily in Oak and glass mosaics, cabinetry was provided for a large collections of books and manuscripts. All modern computers, printers, faxes, and file cabinets are located behind oak panels to provide a uniform classic look to the library. The wooden fireplace hearth was obtained from a 19th century home in England
