After meeting with the client to determine her likes and dislikes, Peng presented her
with three options for palette and materials.
“She chose the one that was most luxurious
and had the most texture,” says Peng. Soft gray
marble sourced from three different companies and rich walnut are the foundations of
the scheme. To that Peng added gray lacquer
finishes for the two floor-to-ceiling towers of
shelves and drawers at each end of the vanity
and a wider tower on one wall used to store
towels and other accessories.
“There is a very interesting grain to the
stone,” says Peng of the marble used in large
slabs for the tub surround, pony walls of the
shower, and the vanity countertop. A similar
stone, cut into 12-by-24-inch rectangular tiles,
was used for the floor, while smaller marble
tiles line the inside shower walls.
