Lafayette

What made you choose Crissy Greene of Elle Design & Décor LLC in Lafayette as your interior designer?
Karen: At the time my husband and I were working on our house plans, we attended the Parade of Homes in Lafayette. It was 2011, and Crissy’s personal home was one of them. I fell in love with the country French style she had done for herself.

What specific feeling did you want your own master bathroom to convey?
Karen: I wanted mine to visually lean to the formal but
to still generate a comfortable atmosphere.
What features were incorporated to achieve this?
Karen: Above the granite counter hangs an elegant and rather ornate oversize European-style mirror flanked by sconces with attached crystals. Another is the travertine 4-by-18-inch stone floors set in a herringbone pattern.

Were there any unique custom innovations that you particularly enjoy?
Karen: The taller cabinets in my bathroom have antique mirrored glass at the top overlaid with mullions set in a diamond-shaped design. With the addition of an antiqued blue finish, the look is very rich. A favorite of mine is the corner cabinet offset from the vanity that not only houses my curling iron and rollers but also has outlets for connecting them. Another great idea was the [addition of] cabinet panels alongside the garden tub that store small bath-related items.

Anything else you would like to add?
Karen: Other than the garden tub, we also enjoy our walk-in shower walled with granite that sports a granite bench, too. Our plumbing fixtures have an oil-rubbed bronze finish.
