Scottsdale, AZ

We were asked to transform the master bath of this vacation home into a southwest-style spa retreat. Initially, the directive called for saturated dark colors and heavier design details but we felt a lighter palette paired with the charm of rustic light-toned wood and hand painted tiles would be a more effective way to update and add style to this space. Color was used sparingly and gracefully, to give a southwest flavor but still be visually calming. The windows behind the tub look out to a specimen cactus garden and roaming desert critters.

This project won a 2015 ASID Design Excellence Award for Bathroom Design.
