This spacious bathroom on Aspen’s Red Mountain overlooks the Aspen Mountain Ski Resort slopes across the valley. It’s a perfect setting for the luxurious spa bathroom atmosphere created by Nikki Holt with Kimberly Timmons Interiors. The project began as a whole home renovation; when it became clear that the bathrooms didn’t agree with the modern look of the remodel, they were wrapped into the design.
Now, a gorgeous soaking tub takes center stage in the primary suite bathroom. “We wanted an element to complement that incredible view out the windows,” Holt says. They removed the dated deck-mount bath, and replaced it with MTI’s Juliet sculpted freestanding tub. A floor-mounted tub filler with hand wand adds to the spa-like experience. Jet Setter Dusk Mosaic linear stacked stone tile on the adjacent wall evokes the feel of tree bark, redefined with a contemporary vibe.
Nearby, a soft gray Curtis chaise upholstered in a textural chenille-like fabric provides a comfortable landing spot. Holt relates that she wanted a low profile in the seating area, to preserve the spectacular views. Artwork elevates the space, including artist Sallie White’s contemporary painting, “One By One” and a mixed metal Poliedro sculpture.
Holt installed a custom floating vanity with a dark oak finish, to bring a rustic touch. “A built-in would have made the wall feel heavy,” she says. Sleek finishes include a durable marble-look countertop, and a Selvaggio Bianco Honed Mosaic backsplash crafted from tiny, decorative cut marble tiles. It’s a unique, yet still classic, treatment. Antique brass Arterior sconces feature art glass shades. Holt says, “You will see in this bathroom that we have a variety of mixed metals, including brass elements, pewter and nickel finishes.” She relates that mixing metals brings a curated feel to the bathroom.
A Premium White Maximum steam shower with marble-look porcelain slab from Italian manufacturer Fiandre is a notable component of the bathroom; it adds a delightful layer of comfort in this Colorado high-country home. Holt opted for a porcelain tile due to its resilient nature in the shower. “Marble is more porous. It will retain water, and can etch and begin to yellow over time,” Holt says. “So we opted for more durable materials.” The tub, sink and shower hardware in Luxe Gold from Brizo’s Odin Collection add a touch of glitz.
