Island Beauty

From Island Beauty, This Old House magazine, April 2005

What I find particularly appealing about this bathroom is the fact that the tub, vanity and mirrors are in the middle of the room. While different, it is very functional, makes good use of space, and creates a very cool focal point. The combined use of warm woods with modern fixtures and fittings gives this master bath a timeless look.

—Colette Ortiz, Design Editor

I like this bath because the island in the center of the room is functional, yet feels more like a piece of art than a vanity. I also love the elegant woodwork and built-ins galore on the opposite wall.

—Michael Stolper, Assistant to Editor
