PROBLEMS: Like the rest of the 1970s home, it desperately needed updating and modernizing. Without daylight, it felt like a dungeon. Outside the bathroom was a greenhouse that was accessible only from exterior stairs.

CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: The greenhouse became a unique spa room. It features glass blocks in one corner to flood the bathroom with daylight. Yellow, turquoise and black glass tiles were chosen by the homeowners as accents for the exterior of the shower walls, in a Native American pattern, to add a personal touch to the light gray bathroom. The same glass tiles are random inserts in the shower, and enhance the backsplash with a custom motif. Not shown is the adjacent 6-person sauna that was an important part of this luxurious bathroom spa.

TESTIMONIAL: Diane and I spent two weeks shopping for all of the products for our new home before I went back to Germany. She made it possible to work with my husband and me over long distance. Her communication skills and attention to all of the details helped us achieve the unique transformation we wanted in every room of our new home. She worked with the contractor to make everything ready for us, with no problems.
