While traveling in Italy, a Des Peres family fell in love with the Carrara marble that filled the bathroom in their luxury hotel. Kelly Layton, a designer with Mosby Building Arts, helped the couple capture the soothing tranquility of an Old World Italian bath with stunning touches of contemporary elegance.

MARVELOUS MARBLE. From the tile floor and walls to the walk-in shower, sleek and smooth White Venatino polished marble covers almost every inch of the luxury bath.

CUSTOM CABINETRY. The elegance continues with separate custom-built vanities made of poplar wood with Carrara marble countertops.

UPSCALE ACCENTS. Access Lighting’s Phoebe Modern/Contemporary wall sconces shine on the room’s brushed nickel accents, such as Artos Quarto front-flow lavatory faucets on Kohler Verticyl undermount oval-shaped lavatory sinks, and a Hansgrohe Raindance S150 Air showerhead.
