Shop the Look of Luxury By Barbara Schmidt, Interior Designer,

This was a dream project from start to finish. First we started with amazing bath fixtures, then added luxury amenities in custom-built cabinetry and layered in gold touches through out the Master Suite. By adding a glint of gold to the space, we were able to help this room design sparkle. Here’s how we did it:  


Function and View

1) Anchor the space with the spectacular @Kallista Michael Smith “For Town” soaking tub. I loved to give the tub the best view possible for the relaxing spa environment.  

2) I imagined a private view of the garden while soaking with a good book and a cool glass of Sauvignon blanc. Still keeping the traditional French door element, we designed a more modern look by raising the ceiling to twelve feet. The @IntegrityWindow Ultrex fiberglass windows and doors are the perfect  Transitional style to blend the outside in.

3) We built in refrigeration @subzerowolf for our morning coffee cream and wine refrigeration for that late night split of champagne.  The under-counter size of the refrigeration was perfect for our custom French-inspired furniture.  

4) Wouldn’t you love a warm cup of coffee in the morning? Add Wolf built-in coffee maker to froth up an espresso for your morning routine. We built in the coffee maker into a custom designed armoire @Platowoodworks. We chose the softest gray/blue color and then added a custom pearlized finish.  


Forever Floor and Countertops

5) What floor will never go out of style? Marble herringbone that’s what and we sourced the already cut pieces @InterceramicUSA

6) We added beautiful gold @Kohler Revival faucets to sparkle against the custom @Ceasarstoneus vanity top.  


Adding the Midas Touch

7) I love to add artisan touches like the handmade wall covering from @thealphaworkshop. Golden goodness on the focal wall really pulled the entire look together.  

8) More gold accents came from @rabbitcreek lighting and custom-cast @SABaxter cabinet hardware to make this suite feel refined.  


En Francais Details

9) Blending modern and European traditional lines was easy once we zeroed in @bakerfurniture. The detailing was just the right vibe.  

10) Bits and pieces were sourced all over the country. Some of my grandmother’s vintage demitasse cups, bronze Asian ladies from a midcentury shop and vintage artwork I’d collected throughout the years.    .
