Traditional Home: Luxury Calacatta Gold Marble Bathroom

This updated take on a classic marble bathroom has pale grey custom-made cabinetry and mirrors, as well as a recessed medicine cabinet. The floor is made of multi-toned chevron marble mosaic. The shower has marble slab walls which have elegant book matched corners. Niches were planned in the shower to create space for soaps and toiletries. Window and door casings were custom fabricated from scraps from the marble to enhance the beauty and durability of the space. Waterworks plumbing fixtures sparkle against the silver and white backdrop of painted wood and polished marble.
