Top-notch kitchens & baths

(page 6 of 6)

Iggie and Tia Castille

Lafayette

How did you envision your master bath when planning your home?
Tia: As in my kitchen, I knew that white would dominate the bathroom color scheme. That would include the cabinets, floors and walls. To provide a break and a nice contrast, [for] the countertop, walls of the shower and a mosaic floor inset, Carrara marble in light gray tones was used.

What about your hardware and plumbing fixtures?
Tia: I was certainly consistent with that, too. Chrome was my choice for everything, including the feet on my old-fashioned tub. These we got from Southern Bath & Kitchen in Lafayette.

What were some special features that you added?
Tia: The shaded wall lighting that matches the ceiling fixture brings an elegant feel to my bath as well as the glass knobs on our closet and bathroom doors. Add to this the teak wood of the double-door opening from bedroom to bath, which was used throughout our home. Another is the rich detailed crown molding that is also repeated in all of the rooms.

What else do your closet and bathroom doors exhibit?
Tia: They were custom-designed to show an architectural sort of embossment that certainly enhances them.

Who helped with your bathroom design?
Tia: We’re a busy family like most, so I relied heavily on Crissy Greene to scout for the things that I knew I wanted. She provided the choices that I selected from.
