Bathroom Beauty

Master boasts amazing exterior views
and "wow" interior elements

W

his
typical 1990's master bath in Palm Springs, Calif.,
his goal was to create a true spa-like retreat with a
connection to the outdoors. He created his-andher spaces for him and his wife - both sides feature
vanity and toilet areas, but his houses the shower,
and hers has the tub and a separate make-up vanity.
"Cathy and I can be in the same space in harmony," said Hetherman,
who is the president and CEO of Willis, a North American-based building
products distributor.
The back-to-back vanities are part of one monolithic island in the center
of the master bath - the first thing one sees upon entry. The unit's countertop forms waterfall gables to tie the whole piece together, and a floating
mirror and hanging pendants finish off the look. The design team planned
ahead for these items by installing a 2-in. by 12-in. plate into the drywall
for mounting.
To bring in natural light and a connection to the outdoors, the bathroom
looks out onto the adjacent courtyard through a floor-to-ceiling glass wall
and entrance doors that open to the spa retreat outside. The indoor shower
is also connected to the outdoor shower area, which is one of Hetherman's
favorite parts of the new bathroom design. His wife prefers soaking in the
tub as the sun rises or gazing at the night stars.

ABOVE This master bath is
part of a 500-sq.-ft. master
retreat addition, which
includes a bedroom, sitting
area and office.
ABOVE RIGHT The addition of

multiple can lights, LED rope
lighting under the vanity and
pendants provide extra illumination in the already bright space.

BELOW LEFT & RIGHT The

countertops, sinks and shower
walls and floor are composed
of DuPont Corian solid surface
material in Glacier White. The
wall behind the tub is bookmatched to Calacatta Natura
in Corian.

The designer said the former tiles in the shower
were a maintenance nightmare. He and his team
replaced those with waterproof solid surface material. Because the floor, walls and niches are all
coved, there is no grout or caulk to worry about,
which Hetherman says makes cleaning a breeze.
The entrance from the master bedroom is separated by a 6-ft., double-glass pocket door, which
made it difficult to position light switches. The
designer and his team opted for motion sensors
at the floor level, as well as toe kick lighting that
illuminates the flooring on all sides of the vanity
island upon entering.
"Every day we use our bathroom, and we
smile with all the details," said Hetherman. "It's
pure JOY."
