Amazing clean lined, elegant masterbath

 Clean lines, gorgeous view, modern spa like feel, soft beige relaxing tones, I'm
definitely adding this bathroom to my favorites.

I could spend hours in this steam shower, sitting on that bench, leaning back and
taking in the view. This bathroom belongs to a retired couple, bet they
are chilling in their bathroom right now.

I love, love, love the look of this undermount tub with its waterfall faucet. 
When it comes to faucet placement on a tub, this is my favorite
look - when they seperate the handles from the faucet. I also
love this look on the vanity as well, but it is rare to find.

Don't you think this bathroom is a little slice of heaven?

bathroom resources:
counters are quartzite
tub faucet:  polished nickel stainless steel Dornbracht waterfall head
fixtures are Dornbracht
floor tiles: blue limestone tiles

bathroom details*:
the tub is set into a stone surround
roller blinds are concealed in the recess of the ceiling over the tub incase you want some privacy
mood lighting is provided by recessed lamps set into a nickel-plated, pop-up panel above the tub. This panel mirrors the dimensions of the tub surround
a steam shower is inside a glass enclosure
the shower drain is a long narrow trough and is positioned along the base of the obsidian bench in the glass shower enclosure
niches chiseled into the stone on the back wall of the shower create shelves for toiletries such as soap and shampoo.
to conceal plumbing, steel shower heads and faucets are mounted onto a polished stainless steel column at one end of the shower
the nickel detailing on the ceiling above the tub is echoed in the frame around the glass shower box
the vanity mirror is set into a nickel-plated frame
matching stone is used for the floating vanity top and the drawer faces below it
towel rails are neatly mounted beneath the outer edge of the vanity so the towels can hang out of the way in the void beneath it
the long, trough-shaped stone basin is sculpted into the vanity top, and water runs away through a narrow drain around the base of the sink.
to keep the space clean and uncluttered, the designer has concealed storage in the columns at each end of the vanity. These cabinets, fitted with electrical outlets, provide storage for hair dryers, shavers and other toiletries, and are opened by tiny, hidden handles

ps. Sorry my side column is still crashing into the photos, I have been a lazy bum and haven't looked for a solution in awhile! If you know how to fix it, please email me at or you can also leave a comment. Thanks!!!
