Center Hall Colonial | Master Bath

This lovely bath is part of a total home project I've been working on from the beginning of construction.  It is a true Center Hall Colonial style home from the Colonial Revival Style and it, along with it's owners, have been a joy!  I love this period and style of architecture and there is nothing better for a designer than to work on something that she would love to have for herself!
We wanted to respect the integrity of the architecture by selecting most materials and finishes that were indicative of the style and period.  There are several French influences throughout the home as well, which appeals to the lady of the house.  I think that these have worked beautifully together.

I designed the vanity wall, above, with faux columns and arched recessed mirrors flanked by sconces with a beautifully aged (forced of course, as these are reproduction) silver patina.  This division of the mirrors is so much more appealing than the 'wall-of-mirror' that so many builders resort to these days.  If you have the 'wall-of-mirror' in your bath, don't feel bad, I do too (I didn't select it, it was in our home when we bought it).  If tearing it down isn't an option try hanging a decorative framed mirror on top of it (which is what I did).  This simple solution works wonders!
We selected a lovely cast iron vintage style free-standing tub.  This isn't period accurate but not everything is :-)
Notice the French inspired chandy above the tub.  It works beautifully within the space, along with the French inspired, functional, buffalo check drapery panels.
The glorious bathtub.  I have to admit I'm a bit jealous of this ;-)...and the beautiful hardware....  Swoon!
There will be plenty more to come from this lovely home! 
I have absolutely loved working with this darling family!  I can't wait to show you what we have done :-)
I hope you're getting a great start to the week!
