Discovering the Dream Within
According to Michelangelo, “every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” Similarly, all of our clients have a dream in mind when we first meet to discuss their remodeling project and it is Weidmann’s job to bring it to life. Indeed, assisting in this artistic pursuit is the essence of who we are and what we do. Weidmann discovers the dream within!
The Power of Collaboration
Here we feature a project that exemplifies the power of collaboration in the search for the best possible result. After transforming the kitchen of the Corbetts – a job that was recognized last year by Houzz.com as among the Top 20 for inclusion in its members’ Ideabooks – they sought our assistance with their master bath. Like most projects, the conversation started with a discussion about the issues presented by their current space. It focused on the dominance of the garden tub at the expense of the shower. It also covered the lack of both vanity and storage space. It even extended to issues in the bedroom itself, before turning to the desired result of the project.
Challenges for Spa Synergy
Although not a huge bathroom, Wendy & Charley wanted to achieve a larger shower, better storage and more vanity space, but retaining a tub. With respect to the bedroom, a desk space was desired, along with a better integration of the existing fireplace, which was tucked in corner. The preferred aesthetic was a warm, comfortable, spa-like space. This quickly led to the concept of a Japanese bath and the design work began.
Master Suite and Bath Flow
With the Corbetts already planning to install a fountain immediately outside the bath, an operable window to bring the soothing sound of flowing water into the bathroom became a necessity. The spa feel was further enhanced with the incorporation of teak vanities, stone tile, a Japanese soaking tub and Shoji screen inspired door to the water closet. It continued into the bedroom with a consistent color scheme and Asian influenced hardware on the cabinetry. Cohesively designed with the assistance of Caren Danneman from the Synergy Design Group, the end result provides a great start to the morning and a relaxing retreat at the end of the day.
