Eureka Jack & Jill Bath

This Jack & Jill bath provides for a girl’s bedroom and a guest room.  The goal was to modernize with easy clean finishes and minimal grout.  We used a toilet that eliminates “hands and knees” cleaning duty.  The new tub provides arm rests and a deeper soak as a result of its elevated overflow drain.  The design details emphasize the vertical and introduce some energy with slag-glass and hickory.  Double sink vanity features deluxe mirrored medicine cabinet.  Installation by Pupillo Home Improvement.  Take a look at brother’s bathroom here.

Eureka Boy’s Bath

This bath was dark and lacked drama.  The clients were ready for a more modern presentation and the expanding effect of shower-only bathing.  We took advantage of the height by drawing your eye along a vertical axis with stainless steel and slag-glass accent stripes.  The huge blocky tile and clear glass entry creates volume.  Rich hickory cabinets provide 4 drawers and linen storage on left.  Toilet is green and easy clean!  We found a shower base color that melts into the new floor.  Boy likes.

Wine Tasting Room

These clients wanted to transform a bare concrete room in their basement into a wine tasting / entertainment space.  Jonathan created a design that incorporated a European feel coupled with vaulted ceilings and a sculptural centerpiece by St. Louis sculptor Abraham Mohler.  Installation by Johnson Interior Improvements.  Paint colors, mirror and muralist provided by Barbara Slavkin Interiors.


In the beginning:  Bare concrete walls.

But hiding behind that door was….THIS:

The centerpiece:  Aphrodite, by Abraham Mohler

Ribbed groin vault in process.

Blocks of Color

These clients have a beautiful, up to date home, but had left this room as their final project.  It was important for us to create a current look, but they requested neutral tones that would allow for color changes with fabrics, towels, etc over time.

We were able to achieve a lot of drama with the dark cabinetry while maintaining a neutral color palette.  The oiled bronze handles blend so quietly with the cabinetry that you are drawn in to the transitional styling details on the woodwork. The faucets bring a feminine contrast to the mostly masculine shapes throughout the room.  Their sculptural form is reminiscent of the “Falling Man” series by Ernest Trova.  Installation by Pupillo Home Improvement.


When I (Jennifer) first saw this tile pattern installed I freaked.  One of my absolute favorites!!


Before:  Uh, no.

Forgive the low-res images.  These last two pics were taken with my phone when I delivered the custom fabric upholstered seat cushion to the job site.

Enjoy your luxurious new bathroom, beloved clients!!!

Des Peres Kitchen

These clients came to Jonathan ten years ago at Modern Kitchen & Baths. When they were ready to update the kitchen in their new home they found us by googling “Jonathan Carson Kitchen Designer.”  After seeing five versions of how to arrange their kitchen, they went with this “Yin and Yang” configuration without hesitation. The room had a significant problem with light balance. The buttery white colors have completely solved the lighting dilemma. Island seats seven; the oiled bronze appliances rock!


“Before” – ouch.
