Magical Marble Primary Bathroom

Our Marietta clients’ growing family was making their home a tight squeeze, so they hired us to design and build a new primary suite over their garage. The space had previously served as a bonus room. The magical marble primary bathroom our in-house designer Molly Trost created is one of our favorite recent projects. Come take a tour to see if it inspires any ideas for your own home.

Making Space

We added height to the existing garage roof to make room for the new primary suite. This included a new dormer outfitted with windows to let in the natural light. With a growing family and very busy lifestyle, our clients definitely needed a space that felt like a getaway. And a bathroom that would provide a calming spa-like feeling.

Clients’ Must Have List

Our clients wanted traditional style and a light color palette. On their wish list was a large shower, a separate bathtub and lots of natural light. They also wanted ample his and hers storage.

Magical Marble

The bathroom floor tile is what put magical marble in magical marble primary bathroom. This gorgeous marble mosaic set the tone in the room. It also anchors the room in an elegant pattern. The veining and variation in color gave us a jumping off point for the room’s color palette.

Shower Setup

The shower floor is the same tile as the rest of the bathroom. This provided a pleasingly cohesive look. We composed elongated subway tiles in a herringbone pattern on the shower walls which added a traditional touch. The gray grout picks up on the color in the marble mosaic and makes the herringbone pattern stand out.

The shower also includes a bench and niche. A shower bench is a great addition for those who are planning to age in place. The clear glass enclosure lets the natural light in from the windows. It also makes the bathroom feel light, airy and spacious.


While the shower stall is generously sized, we still had plenty of room for a sculptural freestanding tub in this magical marble primary bathroom. Molly centered it below the window for a lovely sky and foliage view when bathing. Sheer white window treatments add a soft touch among all the hard surfaces. And they provide privacy.

Double Vanity

We custom designed a custom double vanity with extra storage cabinets in the center. This also provided extra countertop space. Ogee edges, feet, beautiful hardware and the recessed center cabinetry enhance the custom look.

The countertops are quartz that have a marble look. We always speak to our clients about how they like to function at home. Quartz is harder and more durable than real marble. It also means the homeowners won’t have to fret about wiping up every little spot of water as it occurs like they would have had to with real marble.

Two arched mirrors and bell-shaped sconces add some curves in the space. All the plumbing fixtures, lighting and hardware are classic polished nickel. And we love the detail of the mirrored frame around the mirror. It adds even more elegance to the magical marble primary bathroom.

One of our favorite elements in this room are the elegant glass sconces that flank the mirrors.

To sum up, the elements that give this bathroom traditional style include:

  • Marble flooring
  • Herringbone tile
  • Polished nickel finishes
  • Shaker-style cabinetry
  • Arched mirrors
  • Glass bell-shaped sconces

Our clients couldn’t be happier with their new space. It gives them a respite from their busy days and also allows for the children to  have their own bathroom. They’ve told us that every day feels like a spa day when they are getting ready in the morning. And enjoying a luxurious soak in the tub or having a long warm shower is a treat in here.
