07 Dec BATHING BEAUTY
“When a child is locked in the bathroom with running water and say’s he’s doing nothing but the dog is barking, call 911.” – Erma Bombeck
Once you remodel a bathroom in your house, it’s hard to not want to do it to all of them. After two powder rooms and a master bath gutted and transformed, it was time to tackle the oldest of the lot. With growing tweens who share a bathroom between their rooms, it was time to update and maximize the space for optimal use. After remodeling the bathroom at their beach house, we couldn’t wait to demo this bathroom in our clients gorgeous Hancock Park home.
Hard to believe this is the same room! Every last inch was ripped out and replaced with clean and serene. From fresh white penny tile, to replacing the tile walls with bead boards bathed in one of our fave grey paints from Benjamin Moore, the kids will be racing to relax in here. A modern take on a vintage style sink lightens the space and allowed for a fab claw foot tub from Waterworks.
Bye Bye Cramped Shower….
Hello soaking tub!
Adios old clunky tub….
Hello modern shower! Glass walls are a must and allow for the beautiful and sleek glazed brick tile to be seen throughout the room. An oil painting of the siblings frolicking at the beach found a perfect new home above the tub to remind them of their weekend retreat. We love the juxtaposition of this oversized flush mount that provides plenty of light when the sun shine fades away.
These cabinets had seen better days and contributed to making this room feel very heavy and dated. With a young lady wanting a proper space to get ready for school, we decided to demo this wall and create new built ins with form and function from scratch.
By lowering the hidden storage, we were able to add a beautiful marble top and vanity for primping. Open shelves filled with our sea grass baskets allow for easy but hidden storage. Crazy about this vintage stool I found on the hunt, we stripped it to its natural wood and reupholstered in black hide for a dramatic but neutral pop to this monochromatic room. With a sister and brother thrilled with their new bathroom, the only problem to be solved is who gets in there first!
