Spa Retreat MARIE FRENKEL Dreamstyle Kitchens & Baths, Mahopac, NY When the owner considered putting this upstate New York home on the market, it became apparent that the outdated master bath was a problem. That’s when Marie Frenkel of Dreamstyle Kitchens & Baths in Mahopac, NY stepped in. The original vanity/makeup counter was not very functional, so Frenkel chose a large Silva custom vanity with built-in trash pullout, Shaker-style doors and Amerock hardware to take its place. Two large mirrors now ank a frosted glass cabinet, with LED bath sconc- es over each mirror that add a touch of glamour. Corian Zodiaq quartz in Stratus White tops the gray cabinet and blends with the Bardiglio/Thassos marble mosaic backsplash. White rectangular porcelain undermount sinks pair with Brizo’s Providence Classic Belle faucets to complete the vanity area. Removing an oversized whirlpool tub and replacing it with the rectangular Jacuzzi Fiore Pure Air Bath added square footage and allowed the designer to include a separate makeup vanity. Frenkel updated the shower with a corner seat and two corner shelves, as well as a mosaic insert to match the sink backsplash. Ontario white 10"x13" tiles and Kohler Hydro Rail S with Artifacts shower system are displayed through the starphire surround. As it turns out, the client loves her new master bath so much that she decided not to sell her home – for now. Double Duty Bath LORI CARROLL (pictured), ALEXANDER BURCH and DEBRA GELETY Lori Carroll & Associates, Tucson, AZ Originally a powder room, this space needed to ll a new dual role as both a guest bath and pool bath. Lori Carroll, Alexander Burch and Debra Gelety of Lori Carroll & Associates were tasked with creating this space, all while utilizing the home’s existing travertine oors. Modern lines and a calming color palette dictated the room’s direction. Deliberate choices regarding materials, nishes and lighting were made to com- mand a greater sense of space. Because this space would be a wet location – at least part of the time – sealed, easily maintained travertine for both the oors and walls was a logical choice. A Stone River Studios custom wood single vanity makes a statement in the small space, with beautiful wood elements surrounded by a travertine waterfall countertop. The vanity includes a Kohler Ladena sink teamed with a Mirabelle Vilamonte widespread faucet, with a Lewis Framing Custom Sliding Framed Mirror above that moves along sliding hardware to conceal or reveal the window behind it. In the shower, Dune Jaipur mosaic tiles add a little bit of spar- kle. The shower is encased in a Hartman Glass Custom Enclosure. A Kohler Santa Rosa toilet completes the room.
