Since es­tab­lish­ing her de­sign firm a decade ago, Jennifer Huett’s, as­so­ciate ASID, de­signs have been fea­tured on tele­vi­sion, na­tional pub­li­ca­tions and on­line. Her re­tail store, House to Home, is lo­cated in Tem­per­ance Hill Square and hosts a collection of home fur­nish­ings and decor.

Hav­ing been named one of Arkansas’ Top De­signer for sev­eral years with her in­ter­na­tion­ally known blog, shop­house­to­home­blog.com, Jennifer’s de­sign plan is sim­ple: get to know each client and un­der­stand their in­di­vid­ual, per­sonal val­ues and ideas, whether for res­i­den­tial or commercial spa­ces.

Af­ter pur­chas­ing a 1990’s built home in East Gate II, Jennifer was asked by the home­own­ers to trans­form their dated mas­ter bath­room into calm­ing, yet

glam­orous space.

“The home­owner wanted a clean, fresh, up-to-date de­sign,” Jennifer said. “They wanted the dated, dark floor­ing, step-down tub, man-made mar­ble shower insert and counters re­moved. Hav­ing chil­dren, they wanted prac­ti­cal­ity meets glam­our.”

The mas­ter bath was a high pri­or­ity as the home­own­ers wanted a fuss-free, no non­sense de­sign, so Jennifer took out all these el­e­ments and trans­formed the out-of-date bath­room into a fresh, light, neu­tral space.

“In­stalling a free stand­ing tub and beau­ti­ful glass tiled wall puts a lit­tle glam­our and a mod­ern twist on the ren­o­va­tion,” Jennifer said. “One of the more mod­ern meets tran­si­tional de­signs that I use helps to keep clients up-to-date if they de­cide to sell their homes in 10 or 20 years.”

She re­placed the mas­ter bath counter top with mar­ble, in­stalled a tiled shower, mar­ble floor­ing and chrome hard­ware.

The home­own­ers specif­i­cally re­quested a seated area for the counter top as a pri­or­ity, which was in­cor­po­rated at the end of the counter. Draperies were also in­stalled as ac­cents to the tub and to cover the win­dows for pri­vacy.

And thanks to the warm pal­ette, Jennifer said the home­own­ers are “lov­ing the new, unique, tran­quil re­treat. This mas­ter bath rep­re­sents calm and co­he­sive­ness.”
