Accessible Style JULIE LEVERETT ONE eleven ltd., Las Vegas, NV The owners of this master bath each experience unique mobility challenges, with one of the homeowners using a wheelchair at all times. The goal for designer Julie Leverett of ONE eleven ltd. was to create a space that would make accessi- bility "an inherent part of the design rather than an afterthought," achieving a seamless blend of Universal Design elements with aesthetic appeal. In order to facilitate effortless morning and evening routines, the designer added a dual floating vanity that would accommodate both standing and seated positions, as well as a zero-edge enclosed bath/shower space. The bath was reoriented and recessed into the floor in order to accommodate the user as well as a caregiver, and the commode room was placed behind a barn door for ease of entry. The tub itself is a 60" drop-in version with additional insulation for extended warmth. Sleek and stylish tile surfaces feature Arizona Tile's Reside Beige 12"x24" field tile with 12"x24" Reside Ash in the wall-to- wall niche. Moen fittings are featured throughout, providing ease of use. Natural Serenity KIMBERLEY HARRISON Kimberley Harrison Interiors, Moraga, CA Designer Kimberley Harrison was brought into this project after demolition had already started, so she had to work quickly and efficiently in order to turn the relatively small master bath into the spa retreat of her clients' dreams. For her clients, a freestanding tub was an absolute must, so Harrison chose the Baxter Acrylic Freestanding Tub from Signature Hardware and DXV's Modulus floor mount tub filler, and focused on building her design around that. The client's home is surround- ed by woods, and Harrison was determined to bring the beauty of the outside in. The Artistic Tile porcelain flooring, inspired by the Kauri wood native to New Zealand, combines with Artistic Tile's glass mosaic shower surround tile and shower floor mosaic to create a serene, nature-inspired, spa-like atmosphere. In order to make the tiled shower the star of the space, Harrison kept other details subtle and subdued, such as the warm wood double vanity from Restoration Hardware. TOTO's Legato toilet, shower and sink faucets from DXV and Kohler, respectively, and Holmes sconces from Arteriors provide finishing touches to the room.
