Cheviot Hills, a community west of Los Angeles, is known for its quiet, treed streets and Spanish style architecture. It was named the hottest real estate neighborhood in the country in 2014 and the hottest in Los Angeles in 2015 led by new development and the tear-downs of a number of the original 1920’s houses. However, for a contingent of home-owners, living in this neighborhood is a dream come true and they are determined to maintain their early 20th century homes. This often means renovations to modernize and enhance their historical beauty. Such was the case for these clients who partnered with designer Natalie Myers of Veneer Designs to update a cramped bathroom.

“Nothing beats stepping into a bathroom suite that oozes style and practical luxury, especially after living with one that was partitioned, awkwardly laid out, and sadly outdated”, says Natalie.

“The Spanish style house deserved a traditional bathroom, keeping with its architectural story. I typically design modern bathrooms, but I took on this look with a modern twist. Traditional notes like white painted cabinetry, subway tile, and white marble were mixed with modern chrome fixtures, of the moment graphic cement tile, and accessories not meant for a bathroom gave the space a fresh new look and feel.”

These “before” photos highlight the need for a remodel. Outdated tile, fixtures and mirrors paired with a difficult footprint cried out for some loving attention.

In the renovated bathroom, the monochromatic color scheme helps the small space appear larger and draws attention to the vintage rug which adds a graphic pop of color.

My modern sanctuary is a space that feels balanced and quiet, well thought out and uncluttered yet comfortable. Clean lines, layered textures, a story to unfold.  Natalie Myers

“A partition wall was removed and the layout was reconfigured to allow for a more spacious and practical bathroom. The shower stall was eliminated to become a private toilet space. With the toilet relocated, the vanity could become longer.”
