The Look: Streamlined Ensuite

Though designer David Nicolay designed this 450-square-foot open-concept ensuite to be seamless with the master bedroom, he acknowledges that some things are best kept private. “Toilets just aren’t nice to look at,” laughs Nicolay. So he shrouded the toilet area with a walnut screen that hides the fixture discreetly while still letting the light shine through. More walnut and limestone bring sleek surfaces into the sunny, soothing space, with smart built-in storage to help streamline the look.
