4 Stunning Master Bathrooms

These neutral retreats are elegant studies in texture.

It’s unusual for a bathroom to sell a house, but that’s pretty much what happened in this Lyon Park spec home, designed and built by TriVistaUSA in Arlington (trivistausa.com). Kylin and Matt McCardle were especially smitten with the master bath, which project designer Pam Harper outfitted with a Miseno slipper-style soaking tub and a backsplash wall of shimmery, three-dimensional More Bianco tiles. They bought the house in 2018.

A double-sided vanity—framed around a center support to appear as though “floating”—is cleverly made with stock cabinetry, but clad in stained wood trim for a cool custom look. “That was the element I was most attracted to,” Kylin says. “With the windows on either side it has this perfect symmetry. It reminded me of a resort we had stayed at in Mexico. It feels less utilitarian—almost decadent. Indulgent.”

The house has plenty of communal spaces for entertaining, notes TriVistaUSA co-owner Michael Sauri, but also “many places to sneak away and get focused.” Like this contemplative retreat, where all the troubles of the day can be washed away.
