Serene Retreats: Classic Comfort!

When designing a new Potomac home, Diane Shaw created a master bath that mirrored the aesthetic reflected in the rest of the house: clean-lined yet classical, elegant and sophisticated.

“I wanted to make it beautiful,” she says, “but since it’s for a couple, it had to be pretty but masculine too.”

The large bathroom provided Shaw with expansive walls—one of which now accommodates a double vanity with two sinks while another anchors a makeup table. A soaking tub by Victoria & Albert sits before a bank of windows, and a glass-enclosed shower with a bench is a room in itself. A separate WC is tucked into one corner.

Marble surfaces throughout convey the fresh yet traditional look Shaw was after. The countertops and shower are white Thassos, while the mosaic-tile decorative motif in the shower is gray-veined Carrara, offset by a field of white marble squares. Shaw extended the gray-and-white palette with custom cabinetry.

Every detail has been considered. Twin mirrors by J. Conn Scott above the sinks flank a Pottery Barn sconce that has been refinished to match. A chandelier by Circa Lighting above the tub draws the eye, and antique sconces to either side pick up the nearby shower medallion’s design. At the makeup table, a gilt- and silver-framed mirror is a family heirloom, while the antique chair by the tub was a gift from the owners’ daughter.
