TASTE OF THE TAJ MAHAL
When Cathy McCarty and her husband, Shomir Ghosh, decided to renovate the master bathroom in the Brookline condo they share with their two young children, they wanted something that didn’t look like it came straight from a catalog, but not something so far out that it could impede resale. “My husband’s from Bombay,” says McCarty, “so we thought a nod from there could be nice.” To make that happen, they turned to Boston-area interior designer Brenda Be. The medicine cabinet, with an intricate latch cast in India, has clean Federal-style lines, but the glass mosaic wall tile, an of-the-moment look, is flecked with gold, reminiscent of the metallic threads often woven through saris. The 12-by-12 stone slabs lining the shower hint at the expanse of white marble of the Taj Mahal.
