Because traveling was not an option for Valerie Garrett’s clients, she looked to her one-of-a-kind repertoire to curate a primary bathroom that one would find in a luxury hotel suite.
When it comes to redesign, the bathroom is more important than you might think. Valerie Garrett of Valerie Garrett Interior Design (valeriegarrettinteriordesign.com) in Atlanta, GA combined her sourcing skills with her client’s desire to have a bathroom that rivaled one you might find in a five-star hotel. Her attention to detail enhances the primary suite as a whole with striking Italian porcelain slabs, finds she had been saving for the perfect project. By approaching a traditionally smaller room with an ethos of functionality, Garrett is able to see what the end result could be. “It grows from those initial conversations we have with our clients where we ask them so many questions and listen so hard to their answers,” says Garrett of the process, “and it’s what always leads us to a space that’s tailored exactly for them.” With a unique shower display, Garrett sourced lighting to illuminate and sophisticate the space from Wildwood Chelsea House Collection and selected a tub that boasts bells and whistles in addition to acting as a statement, making this bathroom a one-of-a-kind environment meant to elevate the lived experience of the home. From design decisions to reworking untapped spaces, “it’s creating a room that breathes, and that breathing room is a luxury room!”
