City dwellers with strong ties to Pittsburgh’s non-profit and arts organizations, the homeowners asked us to help them update their small en-suite master bathroom, the guest bathroom, and the ceiling lighting plan for the first floor. Both bathrooms were very tight spaces and the homeowners share a decidedly contemporary style, so both bathrooms were gutted and outfitted with sleek, modern amenities. The master bath features a wall mounted heated towel bar, a door-less shower, a glass counter that refracts light from above and lit mirrored medicine cabinets. Every inch was analyzed to maximize the limited storage. Careful thought was given to the soothing combination of porcelain tile, wood vanity, glass counter and polished chrome plumbing fixtures. The guest bathroom posed different challenges. A wall-mounted toilet, combined with sliding frameless glass shower panels and a wall-mounted vanity all contributed to a serene bathroom that functions beautifully in a very small space. Lastly, the first floor level of their home includes their kitchen, dining and living room areas, all showcasing interesting an eclectic and varied art collection. To bring the right focus to their chosen pieces, Liz Murphy Design thoughtfully located specific LED lighting fixtures throughout the space, coordinating the system to allow for different scenes and lighting effects, all controlled by either a wall-mounted panel or a phone app.
