southern comfort - the bathroom

A fireplace, soaking tub and eclectic collection of found objects makes this bathroom the homeowners haven. Plenty of storage and amble counter space keeps the space tidy while the large skylight provides plenty of natural light. The separate water closet and large steam shower keeps complete the room. A pair of etched glass doors allow natural light to filter between bathroom and bedroom.

This bathroom has been published in Trends as well as Better Homes & Gardens magazines, appeared on HGTV's "I Want That Bath" and received a national design award from Residential Design Build magazine.

Classic Clawfoot Tubs
It works very well with the double ended clawfoot tub.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Happy accident 1. My first serendipity-in-design story is about a bathroom that became party central. This bathroom, part of a master bedroom addition to an existing house, has a claw-foot tub, a pair of vanities, a fireplace with brick hearth and the toilet area in a separate compartment. The bathroom was conceived and built as a comfortable room for taking a bath and pampering oneself.

Happy accidents. I've long since learned that not every event can be controlled, not every outcome predicted. I've learned that, in fact, an unexpected outcome can provide a joyous surprise that enriches life.
