Jeff Edwards, design director of Carlton Edwards, in partnership with builder Neal Whitley of McNairy County Construction, inspired by a sleeping porch created this lavishly rich, lake house master bathroom with picturesque views and opulent natural light. “There is a blend of simplicity, natural and honest materials and clean modern lines,” says Jeff. “No lake house cliché here!” The gleam of the bronze and brass hardware stands out against the dark and wood accents.
Bright, vivid and natural are some words that come to mind with this Becca Gaines-designed master bath. With the help of Bob Reed Builders, Becca gave this outdated bathroom a major upgrade. “The Jacuzzi bathtub was replaced with a freestanding soaker flanked by new white marble countertops, and the ceiling fan was replaced with a custom lantern,” says Becca. She also recruited Garner Picture Framing to build handsome custom frames for the mirrors, adding a distinct and unique element to the space.
With good reason, the stunning freestanding tub is the focal point of this master bath by David Clack Construction. Collaborating with architect Jeff Bramlett and interior designer Kim Loudenbeck of Warehouse 67, this luxurious bathroom and adjoining suite is flawlessly curated. To keep the bathtub as the cornerstone, they even incorporated a hidden door, so as to not draw your eye away from the center of the space.
With Shapiro and Company Architects and builder Hank Hill, Cindy McCord fashioned this fresh, clean and breezy master bath. The sizable windows flood the space with natural light as they overlook the property’s rolling landscapes and picturesque lake.
Chickasaw Gardens custom home
This custom home in Chickasaw Gardens was designed for a young couple by Greg Baudoin, in partnership with architect Charles Shipp and Hedgepeth Construction. The striking Schumacher wallpaper is entitled “Byzantium Queen of Spain,” and provides an eye-catching element, offset by the bright whites of the cabinetry, countertops and tub.
Greg’s personal master bath
Greg Baudoin recently upgraded his personal master bath with help from RKA Construction. Entitled “Surrey Woods” by Anna French, the wood-grain motif of this faux bois wallpaper lends a subtle allure to this master bath. The neutral color palette is complemented by the greens of the plants, the glitz of the brass elements and the dark wood chair.
Ragan Magness of Greg Baudoin Interior Design designed this striking yet soft master math. Its grand marble tub is complemented by the stunning yet subdued Lotus by Galbraith & Paul wallpaper in the gray Dover color scheme. The warm antique brass of the fixtures, sconces and cabinets complement the gentle color palette.
Natural light and bright whites lend a fresh new life to this master bath renovation. The 19th-century lighting fixture and antique milk stool accent the modern standalone bath. Along with Barnett Brothers Construction, Old City Millwork, Alexander Brothers Tile & Marble and Michele Pinstein of Greg Baudoin Interior Design, John Harrison Jones Architect created a sublime sanctuary in this master bath.
Hunting camp master bath
Ann Parker of Parker Design Studio called this space “hunt club glamour” — how spot-on! This hunting camp’s master bath was brought to life by architect Looney Ricks Kiss and builder Swindoll Construction. The master bath incorporates gathered and collected pieces in a way that feels both playful and luxurious in the use of color and unique materials.
Wooden tub-inspired master suite
For this Ann Parker-designed space, the whole vision originated with the striking, custom-designed wooden tub from Seth Rolland Custom Furniture. The entire space mimics the natural, outdoorsy vibes of the tub and is complemented by plenty of natural light and access to the outdoors. Architect Looney Ricks Kiss and Hank Hill Custom Builders were integral to enacting Ann’s vision.
“Once a garage, then a ’70s bath, this room was totally reconfigured and transformed,” says designer Ami Austin. With her team of Mike Ruble Construction and Kerns-Wilcheck custom cabinetry and millwork, Ami completely transformed this master bath into a glamorous escape. Bright and palatial, we could lose hours in this breathtaking space.
Warm, open and inviting, this stunning master bath feels more like a spa in a romantic villa. The antique look of the chandelier and the soft glow of the sconces lend a warmth to the clean, bright whites of the rest of the space.
Frank Gusmus of Gusmus Construction and Leslie Murphy with Murphy Maude Interiors created this masterful and fresh all-white master bath. From the translucent chandelier to the marble countertops to the mirrored wall, every inch of this suite is radiant.
Now, go forth, inspired by this master-bath eye candy, and create your own luxurious in-home retreat!
