No luxuries were spared in this townhouse near Navy Pier in downtown Chicago. Designed in collaboration with Green Home Chicago, a large but basic master bathroom was transformed into a “five star hotel bathroom” (to quote the owner!) It features radiant heated floors, a freestanding soaking tub and a steam shower. Inside the shower a large rain shower head hangs above copper-colored penny round tiles that cover the floor. Adjacent to the shower is a floating double-sink vanity with a quartz countertop. Across from the vanity, a series of floating drawers provide ample room for storage and display. Positioned by the window, the freestanding “Stargaze” Kohler tub is the definition of bliss. A muted color scheme enhances the tranquil atmosphere while an accent wall of hand-made blue ceramic tile adds a soft touch of color. Robern mirrors with integrated sconces provide lighting as does a dramatic multi-pendant fixture above the bathtub. The final touch is vivid artwork painted by the homeowner himself.
