The bathroom is a very important part of your home. It’s the place you get ready in the morning, and un-ready at the end of your day. My clients for our casual coastal interior design project needed a serious upgrade to not 1, not 2 but three bathrooms in their home. Keep reading to see how we transformed these spaces!
The bathrooms are truly the star of the show in the Pacific Project. We completed three bathroom renos, in all different amounts of renovation; The Primary Bath was built from scratch, the guest bath received a new layout & materials, and the kids bath just got a materials refresh.
Keep reading to learn about each of these transformations.
The new guest bathroom was the old primary bathroom, and was actually the catalyst to the entire home renovation! Maneuvering 2 people at the same time in this bathroom was a headache. And, the cluster of doors within this small space drove the clients crazy. The door that swung into the bathroom would hit the vanity. And, you couldn’t open the shower door without knocking into the main door. So with a new primary bath being rebuilt upstairs, this became the new guest bath.
We actually expanded the footprint of this room by a couple of feet and reconfigured the layout to solve the door-cluster problem. Then, all new materials and a custom vanity gave this space a sassy, fun look that shows off my client’s personality.

With the old primary bed & bath converted into the guest space, we had to relocate the primary suite somewhere. And the only place to go was up! A new floor was added to this formally single-story Santa Monica bungalow and the entire upstairs primary suite was created from scratch. You’ll read about the primary bedroom in a little bit, but first let’s take a look at the primary bath.
The client had a vision of graphic black and white with bold blue mixed in, and that’s exactly what we created for them! Starting from scratch, we built this entire space from the custom double vanity with makeup counter to the luxuriously large shower.
Sometimes when working on a renovation project, another party involved – whether it’s a contractor, a family member, or even your own self-doubt! – might try to tell you something isn’t possible.
In this case, the contractor we worked with on the Pacific Project encouraged me to abandon the original idea I had for backsplash detail of the primary bath vanity. I wanted a very clean, modern look, so I wanted the quartz slab backsplash to run straight across the entire vanity in a continuous line. Typically, the backsplash would only rise about 4” above each countertop, which would have made for a step down and up where the make up vanity drops lower, or to simply have a gap of backsplash between sinks. I was encouraged to revise my idea because having the medicine cabinet at the make up vanity sit on top of the backsplash would make things very complicated. But I was committed to having it run behind that cabinet. I’m so grateful that the team involved put up with the extra work and site visits it took to make this happen, because it was so worth it!

The kid’s bathroom really just needed a refresh. The clients needed to replace the old tub, but they wanted the layout, the vanity, and their wallpaper to stay the same. So we chose new tile for the floor, and the tub walls that would complement it. I love how many complements I get on the wallpaper, and I give my client’s full credit for it. That was all them, we just enhanced it.
