Although this New Haven, CT, home was built in 1912, the bathroom has a youthful, current feel. Modern materials like the gold fixtures supplied by Bender and a colorful geometric wall covering create a playful sensibility. Interior designer Elisa Billings and contractor John F. Murphy used Kohler Purist faucets, hardware, sconces and showerheads, all in a brushed gold finish.

The dramatic water views of the Long Island Sound are played up in this master bathroom at a home in the Shippan area of Stamford, CT. Only blue skies and water are visible from the freestanding bathtub, giving a zen vibe to the space. Tile, plumbing and bath provided by Klaffs and the millwork is from Bilotta.


This bath harkens back to Roman architecture with a spin on the classic subway tile. The elongated brick is fresh and different while still providing the clean lines for which subway tiles are loved. The tile shown is the Origin Ceramic in Misty Gray matte finish in 10 ½-inch-by-2½-inch dimensions. The shapes are laid out in a 1:3 ratio, which is the same way that the Romans used paving stones and building blocks. This provides the bath with style that transends time.

The flooring is a White Haze polished marble, and the walls feature the rectangular Enchant pattern from the Allure Collection detailed with grey and mirrored highlights.
