Beach House: In the Details
Modernemama revealed her renovated bathroom-- what a fantastic job turning a standard 1960's 'builder' bathroom into something rather fabulous! Using different textures and tones, the mix of chocolate-colored wood, cool white marble, steel fixtures, and mosaic tile, gives a clean and chic look to the master bathroom without being sterile. As for the other renovations underway-- I counted three, or was it four?, kitchen flooring, window treatments, area rugs, and throw pillows were all under discussion. What I love about each of the choices I saw was how they all connected to the mid-century vibe of the house without being kitchy or dated. Instead, they took the lines and colors of the past, pulling them through to the present in exciting and inventive ways.
