A Blah Bath Gets a Dose of Deco-Inspired Style

Staying true to a home's character doesn't mean you have to keep banging your knees against the bathtub. Annmarie McCarthy and Mark Le­Page, both architects, were drawn to their 1934 Tudor Revival in Chappaqua, New York, for its vintage look.

But after a few years of living with its original black-and-white L-shaped bath (the lone full bath upstairs—and one they share with their three children), the couple craved a little leg room. Now wider and brighter, the room has vintage-style tile, chrome fittings, and a windowed alcove. The marble ledge offers a handy spot for bath supplies while reinforcing the horizontal lines of the tilework.
