When we bought our Spanish ranch rambler in the hills above LA it had not been renovated since it was built in 1967.
The house was a mysterious blend of mid century and Spanish and had 60’s wallpaper and old carpeting still intact. It had retro accents and a cool vibe but was screaming for a major makeover.
The first room I tackled was our living room powder room.
It looked like this when we moved in.
I set forth to infuse it with a retro Palm Springs look.
Since we had just moved from the east coast to a warm climate all things tropical really spoke to me.
The powder room re imagined in my Palm Springs, Spanish, Art deco tropical vibe turned out like this.
I added a tropical wallpaper Cole & Sons Palm leaves.
I wanted tropical leaves everywhere!
I switched out the faucets for Kohler purist faucet and added an Art Deco style mirror.
I re tiled the floor with a pretty Spanish Cement tile
Painted the cabinet a high gloss color and added modern door pulls.
The inside of the cabinet I painted black.
I selected a modern pendant with gold finish inside.
Added two mid century inspired 60’s glam wall sconces to stay true to the era of the house.
I kept the marble counter top and refinished the sink.
The new floor made the room.
This is the Cement tile we used.
The sink was an ugly yellow….
But since I love to reuse and I wanted to keep the marble top I decided to stain it.
After we had it refinished it looked like this..
…it turned out better than I had hoped.
I love the vibrant gold color on the Kohler purist faucet .The finish is vibrant matte gold.
I used these faucets in most of the house.
This angular pendant was the last piece of the puzzle..
My favorite design style is Art Deco so adding an Art deco style mirror felt right.
