THE
EAST FALLS
MASTER BATH
PHILADELPHIA, PA

 

ONCE UPON A BEDROOM



This early 1900’s home in East Falls had all of the old house charm needed to satisfy the owners needs, but it lacked a master bathroom. Hence the transformation of this space - located off of the Master Bedroom - into a lavish Master Bath. The goal was to stay true to the architectural details that are carried
throughout the entire house. The authentic wood baseboards were salvaged & the original solid wood doors were repurposed as a pocket door for the toilet room.

INSPIRATION

INDUSTRIAL FRENCH BISTRO CHIC
A  design palette that will never go out of style.

Influenced by the early 1900's, the black and white palette calms the senses. These two colors never fail to elevate the aesthetic of a space. LBH went gangster by intentionally choosing materials that have been in use since the early 1900's. The New York subway system opened in 1904 & the term "subway tile" became more prevalent. Going with a larger scale of white subway tile on the shower walls modernizes & updates the overall look and feel of the classic brick patterned subway tile. For the shower floors we went with a twist on the classic penny round by choosing a black matte...oh my! The main flooring needed to be something classic of the era. The larger format black matte hex tiles offers up an authentic historic style in this nearly 120 year old home. Like Coco Chanel, this master bath is timeless!
Sourced locally we found a mid-century hutch to create a place to store things and bring a feeling of home into the room. The master bath vanity is made from raw wood & has an apothecary French Bistro vibe. Adding warmth & texture to this primarily black and white palette.The mixture of brass, silver, and matte black finishes tie into this industrial classic look and create a chic relaxing space that cleanses the mind, body, and soul.
SOMETHING SALVAGED

F or over 160 years, Singer has been synonymous with sewing. This 20th century antique Singer pedal sewing machine looked like the perfect base for a table. The client held on to this inherited gem with the intention of one day turning it into something functional. We had just the spot for this vintage accent and so began the salvaging of this beautifully crafted table base. We had a live edge wood top fabricated and mounted on this once hard working machine that likely produced an assortment of beautiful garments from the era. Now the client has a place to sit and feel beautiful!
