BREATHTAKING BEACH HOUSE – PART VIII

Malibu Master Bath 12

20 Mar BREATHTAKING BEACH HOUSE – PART VIII

“To me bathtubs are the epitome of luxury.  Either you have no money to own one or you have no time to use one.”

After remodeling the master bedroom suite in this cottage by the sea, we couldn’t wait to gut their bathroom.  Untouched for decades, we schemed a design to modernize and expand the room while taking advantage of the Malibu sunshine.  The results are bright, clean, and serene!  Bye bye wood counters and grasscloth walls, hello beadboard and marble.

Who wouldn’t want to soak in this tub after a day of surf and sand?!  Peel off that wetsuit and step into a steaming hot marble shower to soothe your muscles.  We custom built the vanity with campaign hardware and a marble trough sink.  With all of those drawers, and a new chrome medicine cabinet, we could eliminate the former closet within the room.  A favorite piece of art was given new life when reframed in grey drift wood.

These blown glass beauties are mounted on metal back plates and give off a lot of light when the sun goes down.

Porcelain top glass jars from our store contain tiny shells and add a fun yet sophisticated taste of the beach inside the home.  A baby coral makes the perfect ring holder.

The sink was originally on the opposite side of the room with a small linen closet.  By switching it to the other side, it actually created space and made this restful bath a space that flowed more cohesively.

The former shower was dug out behind the old shutter door to hide the new toilet with a sliding barn door.  Pleasing to the eye, and giving privacy so more than one can be in here without cramping anyone’s privacy.

Magnificent marble!  A glass wall adds dimension without blocking off the stall from the room.  Chrome fixtures from our one of our faves, Waterworks, are modern and sleek.

This tub became the shower stall and was replaced with the claw foot classic below.

We love how even the pipes off the tub become an architectural element to the room.  The original tile on the floors was replaced with porcelain wood planks laid in a herringbone pattern.  Authentic to the rest of the house but easy to clean and able to handle all the salt and sand with a quick sweep.

Our cut crystal votives add a warm glow in the marble shoe above the tub.  A glass of wine and a good book are all you need to make this giant tub another place of solace within this dream house. Rub a dub dub, time to kick back in this tub-ular bathroom.  Stay tuned for the next phase of our breathtaking beach house makeover.

XO,
