This en-suite was re-designed for 50-something homeowners who plan to remain in their beloved house long-term and to age gracefully while doing so. The new master bedroom/bathroom pairs timeless finishes with universal, age-in-place design principles such as flush door transitions, blocking for future grab bars, a changing bench (towel storage below), lever handles and dual slide-bar shower heads. Interior and decorative finishes are fresh and clean but grounded in rich earthy colors (honoring the home’s existing palette). Natural organic accents infuse texture and interest (e.g., sisal paper, flamed granite counters) and timeless beauty.

This project won first place at the 2017 MN ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) awards.
