When a project includes on its roster an architect, interior designer, art consultant,
and lighting expert, you know it has to be a special home. And when the client says it’s the main bathroom (and bedroom) that’s her favorite part of the project, you know that bath must be beyond.
“The sun floods into the white marble bathroom and…into the bedroom in the mornings—it’s such a beautiful piece of design and feels so serene,” says owner Reema Stanbury, of the space. “I love it.”
We do, too—so much so that we’ve tracked down how to replicate the look. Read on. (And to see the entire masterpiece, go to
A Tale of Two Styles: Proper Victorian on the Outside, Modern Zen on the Inside.)

The Modern House. Above: A Crittall steel and glass door separates the bedroom from the ensuite bath. “All the metalwork in the house [has] been either powder-coated in oyster white or treated in an antique bronze,” says Reema. The vanity is custom from Lusso Stone. Above: Floor-to-ceiling blush curtains soften the look. The vintage rattan stool is by Isamu Kenmochi, sourced from Béton Brut. Above: The walls are painted in a Farrow & Ball limewash. Above: All the fixtures, powder-coated oyster white, are by Studio Ore. The 1950s Italian brass mirror is from Béton Brut. Wall Decor Above: For a similar-looking mirror, try the Specchio Mirror, from the collaboration between CB2 and Goop ($499). At a higher price point, you can’t go wrong with the original Gio Ponti Rectangular Wall Mirror; $1,675 at Danish Design Store. Above: The mirror is flanked by Porcelain Series Wall Lights by Michael Anastassiades. They are available in uplight and downlight options and come in two sizes (pictured is the 6.2-inch larger size); $480 at Lightology. Above: The Calacatta Honed Marble tiles on the walls and floors are from Mandarin Stone, starting from £0.47 per tile. Bath Accessories Above: The Oak Handheld Bath Brush by Iris Hantverk (center) is $28 via Fetch Mkt. Photograph via Terrain.

Fixtures and Fittings Above: Reema’s sink is Lusso Stone’s Thinn Stone Resin Wall Hung Double Basin; from £395. It sits on a custom metal frame, also from Lusso Stone.
