Bathed in Style

MBath Sink


As we began our relationship, I asked my client what kind of mood and feeling she wanted in the new house she was building.  She told me that the antique French furniture she had inherited from her beloved grandmother were the most important possessions she owned, and wanted them to be featured in every room.  We were able to do that throughout the house, although in the master bathroom, above, we had custom cabinetry built to approximate the look she wanted.

MBath Tub Cararra marble floor, shower walls and counter provide a classic backdrop for the custom sink cabinet and luxurious tub.  The antique table provides a handy resting place for a drink while bathing.

Emery & Associates specified interior doors, cabinetry, flooring, electrical and plumbing fixtures, hardware, and finish materials, as well as providing window coverings, drapery, reupholstery fabrics, and accessories, for this extensive new construction project. We are most grateful to the client for putting her trust in us while she was in the process of building this beautiful new home.

    How lucky the client was to have you help her marry the old and the new, Kathia. Will there be more photos as the project progresses? I love the marble! And I wish my bathroom were this big, but of course my house is OLD!

  • Judi Cleghorn says:

    I am crazy about the color you have chosen for the walls of the bedroom and bath. What is it? Lavender is so difficult to pull off without it being too cloying; this is such a luscious and sophisticated shade. It plays off the lovely fixtures and French antiques (real and otherwise) in such a splendid way. Tres belle, Kathia!

  • Holly Stickley says:

    Hi Kathia! Gorgeous as usual. What is the wall color in the bathroom and bedroom? Is it the same? Beautiful and unusual. Thanks for sharing!

    • Kathia Emery says:

      Since Judi and Holly both asked about the color: it is Benjamin Moore “Violetta AF-615.” It’s a complex color, and same paint in both bathroom and bedroom, but changes dramatically with the lighting. Client’s favorite colors are purple and green.
