2. Marble Magic and Rustic VanityLocation: Los AngelesSize: 90 square feet (8.4 square meters) Designer: Lindsay Chambers Design The backstory: A top-to-bottom Mediterranean style didn’t suit the character of the 1919 Craftsman home, which was renovated in 2014.Solution: Designer Lindsay Chambers and Hazel Wood Group builders completely gutted the room. They had to rebuild the floor due to water damage, reinsulate the walls, put up drywall and waterproof everything. Then a modern palette of white and gray with lots of marble created a refreshing atmosphere. Tile: Carrara marble tiles cover the floors and walls, creating an elegant, spa-like feel. A mix of patterns — arabesque on one wall, brick on another and large format on the floor — gives dynamic character to the space. Vanity: A large furniture-style vanity in a rustic wood offers a nice counterpoint in tone and texture to the expanses of white-and-gray marble.Shower and tub: A curbless shower, separated from the rest of the room by just a single piece of glass, gives the impression of more space — visually and physically — and makes way for a freestanding tub.Shower and tub filler: Hansgrohe; faucets: Newport Brass; lighting: Hudson Valley Lighting; paint: Apparition and Simply White, Benjamin Moore; bathtub: Caicos, AquabrassShop for wall and floor tile
1. L.A. LooksDesign takeaway: Lay similar tile in different directions to break up the look.Ninety square feet isn’t a pocket-sized bathroom, but that doesn’t mean designer Lindsay Chambers didn’t need to be creative with space, given that homeowner Andrea Harrison wanted a large bathtub, shower and dual vanity in her master bathroom. Part of an overall remodel of a 1919 Craftsman home in the historic Spaulding Square neighborhood of Los Angeles, the bathroom feels fresh and airy while also checking off every box on Harrison’s wish list. “She wanted an elegant, cohesive aesthetic that gave a nod to the rural Craftsman look of the exterior of the house while feeling modern and built today,” Chambers says.
