Looking back at portfolio images its hard to believe I designed this bathroom 7 years ago and I just realized its never been posted on the blog before. So to elaborate on a little throw-back-Thursday instagram post, I thought it was a good opportunity to share more photos about it here. This Master Ensuite was part of a top to bottom renovation of a 3 storey condo in mid-town Toronto. Although it wasn't a complete gut reno like the main hall bathroom, the master ensuite modifications were designed to work with a couple of existing elements. There were three things that remained untouched; the cararra marble tile floor, a walk-in shower (not visible but is located to the left of the tub in this photo) which was tiled floor to ceiling in the same marble tile, and a small mirror medicine cabinet. Since so many years (and computers) have passed I've lost track of most of the before photos but I think you can see from the one before image below the extent of upgrades that were implemented.

I designed a new double sink custom vanity, mirror and tub skirt in macassar ebony. The vanity and tub were finished with a cararra marble top and a pair of rectangular undermount sinks. A feature wall above the tub was designed to create a beautiful sightline as you approach the bathroom thru a hallway from the bedroom. The back painted glass panel reflected a lot of natural light from the skylight and glowed a beautiful and serene watery blue at night. This room photo was taken by me a year or so before the top photo of this post (professionally shot).

This last image is another shot taken by me, on the same day as the professional shoot and illustrates the difference in how much better the professional images are. I hope you've enjoyed the peek at one of my past projects which has never been seen on the blog before. Despite how many years ago this was designed I still love it as much today and know that it can continue to stay fresh and modern looking thru the simple change-up of accessories.
