How do you define a luxury property? A home spa helps!

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010


If you’re looking to buy a luxury home, new or old or transform your existing home into a luxury property there’s one thing that you will surely need to include… a luxurious home spa. I did a quick search the other day and found some amazing luxury homes, all complete with their own spa-like bathroom, each complete with a steam shower. Here are some of my favorites:

This amazing house is set just off the water in Dana Point, California. This home has not one amazing spa-like steam shower, but two in its massive 11,000 square foot space. In the smaller bathroom there is a nice, private steam shower with a bench, while the other bath is described as a “spa bath” which is equipped with an oversized steam shower that is finished in stone and tile with glass accents, a private massage area, and fully appointed exercise room.

This beautiful modern home is a bargain compared to the Dana Point home, but this one only has 2,464 square feet compared to the 11k that you will get for $8-11M. This home does qualify as a “luxury property” though, and the steam shower in the master bath does help its cause, even if it looks small in these photographs. More information on redfin.com

A couple called in Interior Designer Candice Olson to make their bathroom a luxury bathroom. While the bathroom was cute before, it wasn’t as luxurious as the couple would’ve liked so Candice spared no luxury by putting in a fantastic shower with a frameless glass enclosure, a rain shower, steam shower, body sprays and a white-quartz bench.  She wanted the room to be calm and refreshing, so she chose cool, watery greens for the color scheme. She selected a small, green marble mosaic tile for the steam shower and for the backsplash for the soaker tub and vanity. The tile matches the green in the solid glass vessel sink and the painted glass in the luxurious shower. Now what was a cute, but very ordinary bathroom is now an extraordinary, refreshing oasis in which Tonia and Francis can retreat from the chaos of everyday life.

The Art of Stone in the Home Spa

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Individual by nature and illustrious in its final shape, the use of stone in the home spa produces a captivating and tactile experience unmatched by other materials. Earthy, exotic, and sometimes extravagant, there are many beautiful types of stone that fuse effortlessly into home décor. The unique quality of these creations lies in the distinctive patterns created by the colorful veining in each piece of stone. No two pieces are alike – ever. Hand-carved using a hammer and chisel with respect to the nature of each piece, the designers delicately carve each form into a modern masterpiece. Here are just a few of our favorite stone elements that we have seen more and more in the home spa:

Old World Bathtub

Carved from a solid block of marble, the bathtub features unique veining and the alluring natural colors of the distinctive stone. The custom tub weighs a stunning 1500 pounds – holding up to 500 pounds of water, and when filled the bather will be comfortably immersed in 17″ of warm water.
