Playa del Rey Bathroom Reveal

I am so happy to be back after a short break from blogging feeling refreshed. I have made a conscious decision to create and design at a slower pace allowing time for perfection and reflection on the projects that I choose to design.

For this very reason, Lulu and Matt were awesome clients. They empowered me use my creativity in the design of their beachy modern bathroom while seeking quality in the aesthetic. I will share a thoughtful interview from Lulu as part of this post. All photos are courtesy of the talented Amelia Tabullo photography.

H: Lulu, can you tell us a little bit about yourself? 
L: I love fashion and everything design related.
H: What motivated you to want to update your bathroom? 
L: I think bathroom and kitchen play really important role in home style, and our old bathroom is very out-dated, and we have been planning to renovate it since the day we moved in. We prefer stand shower to 2-1 tub & shower, because the stand-in shower gives us more space, and it is easier to clean.

 

H: How would you describe your design style and personal taste?

L: My style is modern, minimal, chic, and practical. My favorite design is North European interior style, I love the light, clean, and airy feel for my home.

 

H: What is your favorite aspect of your new design?

L: One of my favorite is definitely the marble shower and floor, I think it brings the bathroom (even my home) to a whole new level. I also like the color palettes, white, gray, walnut.
H: The frameless shower doors were key in creating an unobstructed view of the marble tile work.

Thank you, Lulu for sharing your beautiful home, the inspiration and the freedom to get creative with you!

Here is a close-up of some of the little details which include: Scandinavian style faucet, handmade brass sconces and custom recessed walnut shelving all coming together to make the space truly unique!

The finishing touches include modern towel rod, hand towel ring, soap dish, robe hook and toilet paper dispenser were all part of a chic set by Hansgrohe. I came across these gorgeous accessories in this Brooklyn bathroom.

I have also taken time to freshen up my Portfolio page, so please stop by to see more of what I do.

Lulu’s Stylish Bathroom Renovation

Drumroll…today is the day!

I am pleased to share the results of the full bathroom renovation with you. It was a labor of love and I feel a satisfied with the way it all came together.

I will have the professional photo-shoot in August, but until then, here are a few pictures of the renovated bathroom.

Below is the picture of the vanity before and after. We created more storage by using a large mirrored medicine cabinet in lieu of the older vanity.

We updated the space using a modern floating vanity in walnut that provided ample storage space. The accent wall was painted in Pigeon Gray by Benjamin Moore. The coolness of the gray paint offset the warmth of the walnut perfectly as imagined. The brass sconces by Triple7Recycled were a sweet find! They add a touch a of vintage style and metallic shine to the design.

I especially like the way that the 2 display shelves replace then former mirrored side cabinet. The details such as the shower head and handles really modernize the space. We used a set of Hansgrohe towel rods, ring, robe hook and soap dish to accessorize the bath.

An update to the general room lighting was essential in transforming the space. If I could only change 2 things about a room, I always look to lighting and paint selection in the beginning. The recessed LED lighting provides a crisp white light and energy saving advantages in the long run. I love the way the lighting reflects off of the marble surface.

All the details in the marble finishing make the space truly customized. From the marble baseboards, the buffed marble edging on the shower, to the honed marble shower floor tiles this space is one of a kind.

Overall, you can see how the bathroom flows together…from the enlarged shower surround to the modern sink.

The best part was sharing the results with Lulu and Matt. Lulu was a big part of designing the space. I know they are going to enjoy it for many years to come.

***We have since added see through frameless glass shower doors. I will save the pictures of these for the reveal of the pro photos in August.***

Friday…I’m in love: Vanity

I don’t care if Monday’s blue…

This week has been such a beautiful one. It started with the misty rain and ended with a sweet redo!

This table used to be yellow with rustic country charm. We had been using it much like a garden table filling it up with plants, watching as it quickly became dusty with soil. This little table is an antique, but was in no condition to be restored. I still liked the grace of it’s lines and the keyholes. A collector once told me it was probably a 1920’s wash table with a mirror attached. I always saw it’s original potential.

I think I like the pale pistachio paper and pink birds even more against the white.

I’ve been building a replacement for the garden, inspired by this tiny photo.

Now, I wouldn’t dare to set a dirty potted plant on this lovely white!

For custom pieces, please inquire hilary.hahn@34.202.201.240.

Happy Friday, folks!
