mahogany surround that was custom-built by Stephen Terhune
Woodworking, a partner of Carpenter & MacNeille, who also did all the
custom cabinetry in the house.
A mahogany platform between the tub and adjacent glass-walled
shower allows for easy entry into the tub. The shower walls are Imperial
Red marble; throughout the bathroom, floors are chunky square tiles of
tumbled slate. The upper walls in the room are painted a soft currant color
that is a striking contrast to the warm mahogany beadboard wainscoting.
Despite the small space — just 78 square feet — the room appears open
and bright, with lots of nook-and-cranny detailing.
In the master bath, his-and-her mahogany vanities with Costa
Esmerelda marble countertops finished with sleek chrome faucets frame
the large shower, where the same greenish marble covers the walls and
forms a bench. A small anteroom between the vanities and shower contains cabinets for storing towels and linens. Beadboard wainscoting painted
a soothing sage green completes the tranquil package.
Here again, the homeowners decided to move away from the standard porcelain tub. While flipping through an interior design magazine,
the wife came across an advertisement for mahogany bathtubs handmade
this second-floor guest bathroom is one of four in the house; there are
two half baths on the first floor and another full bath with a shower and tub
in the finished basement. Here, the same mahogany used for millwork and
cabinetry throughout the house lends a warm and cozy atmosphere and
brings continuity to the design scheme.
