Together, Katleen and her designer, created an entirely new entry, replacing the existing front door with a far more dramatic one that pivots instead of swinging. The original, standard-issue kitchen and bathrooms became remarkable testaments to luxurious minimalism. Now, stainless-steel appliances reflect a sizable Corian island that camouflages the majority of the kitchen's storage. The master bathroom contains not one, but two showerheads, both set behind a glass wall that defines, yet doesn't divide, the space. Steps away, the bathtub is a simple white box, albeit a box that's 6 1/4-feet long (almost 20 percent longer than traditional tubs). And while the palette consists of whites and grays, the materials—marble and limestone—are rich and textured.
The master bathroom has everything—and then some. But thanks to the floating sink console, simple boxy tub, and transparent glass shower wall, the room still feels serene. And why stop at his-and-her sinks? Katleen installed two stainless-steel showerheads in this airy, open-sided stall.
