4 Stunning Master Bathrooms
These neutral retreats are elegant studies in texture.
When Amy and Bob Fischer put an addition on their 1948 brick colonial in Tara Leeway Heights, they wanted a master bath with spa-like luxury—and room for three young kids. “Oftentimes in the morning you can find all five of us using the space,” says Amy, an interior designer and owner of Charlotte Lily Interiors (charlottelilyinteriors.com). “We also were passionate about keeping the character of our home intact.” They hired architect Sarah Riddlemoser of Arlington-based Moser Architects (moserarchitects.com) and Merit Homes in Falls Church (buildmerit.com) to create a retreat that is beautiful and timeless, but also supremely functional.
That vision translated into a Victoria+Albert Cheshire claw-foot tub, Carrera marble basket-weave tile (which plays on the woven look of an antique rug) and marble subway-tile wainscoting. The vanity’s Mouser custom cabinetry has scalloped feet to match the style of the tub, and there are a few touches of sparkle, such as a crystal chandelier (Pottery Barn) and custom gilded mirrors from KH Art & Framing. A large shower with multiple jets “makes showering three small kids super easy,” Amy says. And in the realm of creature comforts, the space has a heated towel rack and heated floors.
