Sometimes the best way to renovate is to add on. Better still – build UP. After successfully working with Divine designer Mariette Barsoum on their kitchen, staircase and guest bathroom these homeowners trusted Barsoum’s vision to build a new master suite ABOVE their existing kitchen. She turned unused attic space into their own personal, in-house getaway.


It’s hard to pick out a single “highlight” of this inviting master bathroom. Is it the romantic see-through gas fireplace that can be seen from either bedroom or bathroom? Is it the luxurious air tub elegantly placed under the new windows? Or is it the shades-of-green custom resin panels that are subtly backlit?


There are so many details in this bathroom that you have to look again and again. Soon you’ll notice that the shelves in the shower niche aren’t continuous. Or that those aren’t the expected granite countertops on the vanities – instead, they are made of “ice stone,” a mixture of concrete and glass that reflects the light and repeats the green accent color without being overpowering.

Today, even though they are close, this family of five no longer has to share the upstairs bathroom. Kids and guests don’t have to be jealous since they have their own designer bathroom.

"Mariette, you and your team have been a pleasure to work with. I am thrilled with my kitchen and my bathroom vanities and would highly recommend your firm. If you ever want to have people stop by my house to show them any of the cabinetry, I would be proud to show off my kitchen and bathrooms. Thank you again and best wishes for much continued success!"
