In the process of renovating a North Scottsdale home, interior designer Esther Boivin also updated the master bathroom, which was compartmentalized and lacked light. Boivin suggested a sleek look, teaming with La Casa Builders for the renovation. She underscored an existing corner window with a floating vanity, pairing grayed oak cabinetry with marble and crackled glass countertops. Adding a new frosted glass door and sliders gave the bathroom more light—an element Boivin enhanced with the herringbone-patterned floor, a mix of honed and polished marble tiles that pick up reflected light to create a subtle pattern.
By night, the bathroom sparkles with LED lighting and a customized chandelier. The room’s piéce de résitance is a stagelike setting for the deep soaking tub and dual showers. A blue onyx wall and glass tile flooring provide a backdrop for the contemporary tub, while white marble walls and flooring frame the blue surfaces. Boivin also designed a floating soffit above the space for the lighting, plus the in-ceiling tub filler and one of the showerheads. Boivin’s efforts won her a 2018 Design Excellence Award from the Arizona North Chapter ASID.
