Elegant His and Hers Bathroom Design
ROOM FOR TWO
Large Bath – Best of Class Award
BY JULIE SANDERS | PHOTOGRAPHY BY GEOFFREY HODGDON
Ernesto Santalla, PLLC—formerly Studio Santalla—transformed an outmoded his-and-hers bath in a Tudor-style DC home into a natural light-filled, contemporary retreat for two. He enclosed the travertine shower, which divides the two bathroom areas, with floor-to-ceiling glass, allowing daylight to flood both spaces and making each appear larger. Clean-lined, dark cabinetry of dyed lacewood and ultra-modern plumbing and light fixtures convey an elegant minimalist aesthetic. The creamy limestone flooring and countertops and frosted glass entry door all contribute to the sense of light and openness. Located in the “hers” section of the bathroom, the soaking tub is spacious and elegant.
