Nestled in the woods of Providence’s historic Blackstone Neighborhood lies a hidden architectural gem. Built in 1957, our clients, transplants from the West Coast, had called the mid-century modern house home for four years when they contacted Red House. They felt the primary bathroom, previously renovated by former owners, did not meet the level of sophistication and thoughtfulness imbued in the rest of the home. And the Jack-and-Jill bathroom, shared by the two teenagers of the household, no longer met the family’s needs.
With meticulous planning, Red House proposed a design that split the shared bathroom in two, allowing for one en suite and one separate bathroom for guests. The gesture ensured privacy and functionality while allowing for an additional canvas to let material choices shine. Now, a total of three bathrooms in this wing of the house, each deserved its own personality. Bold and colorful pendant tiles adorn the walls of the guest shower, with flecks of orange and blue dancing in the terrazzo-like floor to match. Boyish slate blue and teal mosaics make for a handsome en suite. Rich earth tones in the primary bath echo the natural palette of the surrounding forest, creating a spa-like atmosphere to escape the bustling day-to-day todos.
