On the Road With Roomscapes In Duxbury, MA

Classic Master Bath in a Historic Gem

Welcome to Roomscapes’ new blog series, “On The Road With Roomscapes”. Our designers and installation crews work with many homeowners in and around the Boston metro area. The projects are varied and include kitchens, baths, walk-in closets, complete home renovations and more. We’re often asked about these projects so our design team decided it would be fun to share their stories with our readers.


Designer Judy Whalen combined white marble with furniture inspired custom cabinetry to create the elegant space.

The renovation of the master bath in this historic Duxbury, MA residence is a study in proportion. The home sits near the harbor in this bucolic seaside community south of Boston. Although we did the photo shoot in the winter, we could easily imagine sipping lemonade on a lazy summer afternoon on the patio surrounded by manicured grounds. Classic is the word that immediately comes to mind when you enter the home.

The second-floor master bath renovation required a seamless integration of architectural elements in keeping with the stately feeling of the home. The room is a study in white. Even on a cold day, light streams through the window and dances across the pristine white Carrara marble countertop and floor.

“The minute I saw the room, I knew classic design elements were a must,” says designer, Judy Whalen.


The space before renovation.

Tall stately built in mirrors are placed over marble sinks with plated stainless steel fixtures. Candlestick sconces are reminiscent of days of another era. Attention to balance is evident with double sinks and furniture quality white custom cabinetry finely detailed with panel doors and glass drawer pulls. The installation is the focal point of the room and exudes classic style.


The completed space seamlessly integrates the glass enclosed shower with the vanity and double sinks.

A modern custom designed glass shower is to the left as you enter the room. Inlaid tile in various shades of white create textural interest juxtaposed with the sleek simplicity of marble walls, floor and custom marble bench. Without loosing a bit of elegance, the shower reflects contemporary elegance to complete the space.
