This Master Bathroom in a pre-war apartment building on the Upper East Side was designed with an old-school sensibility.

By removing the bathtub to install an oversized stall shower with a vintage-styled shower door in matte nickel, the room feels much larger and lighter, and reflects the ‘take a quick shower’ lifestyle of the owner.

The custom vanity we designed has a stone top with built-up edge in ‘Perlino Bianco’ from Stone Source.

Both the ‘Astoria’ faucet set with lever handles and the ‘Opus’ wall sconce in matte nickel are both from Waterworks.

By using the same tiles in the shower and on the floor one experiences the entire footprint of the room – making it feel more spacious. The tiles are marble mosaics from Sicis with a field of ‘Verde Luna’, with ‘Bianco Antico’ used for border tiles.

The shower wall tiles are ‘Lanka’ subway tiles from Nemo Tile.

Wall and ceiling paint from Benjamin Moore Historical Color Collection ‘Clarksville Gray’
