An Alaskan Retreat
“This master suite project was part of a two-story addition to an existing log home – one of the first in Juneau – so one can imagine the original bathroom was dark, dated and lacked lighting and storage,” said designer Jason Clifton of Juneau, Alaska-based Clifton Interiors.
“We used AutoCAD to complete the plan set for this project,” said Clifton, explaining that the design involved an addition to the master bathroom. “We’ve found this software continues to allow us to draw every bit of detail exactly the way it should be built to achieve our designs, while illustrating tile patterns and finishes specified.”
The accent wall tile in the shower stall is embossed with wood grain of a stump and adds a rustic element to this modern bathroom.
Details like the wooden ceiling and doorframe connect the more modern space with the rest of the log cabin.
The ceiling above the vanity was put in a soffit behind the pre-existing beam to incorporate optimal task lighting, and it achieves a visual disconnect between the wood cabinetry and original cedar ceiling.
“We embraced the log construction and felt the strong horizontal lines of the logs played nicely against the various modern tile patterns,” said Clifton.
This vintage cowl ventilator was previously resourced and refinished from an old ship. According to Clifton, not only is this piece decorative, but it also serves as the laundry shoot to the new laundry room below.
