Maintaining Midcentury Magic
Built in 1964, this beautiful midcentury home has been updated room by room over the years. Next on the list, 2 main floor bathrooms. The powder bathroom required nothing more than some lipstick and updated plumbing fixtures, however the “tile bath” (as it was named) deserved an entire overhaul. The homeowners wanted to maintain the classic MCM feel of this room, but desperately wanted to let go of the soft pink original 4×4 tiles.
The focus of the new interior design evolved around a Kerf Design vanity that the homeowner had been eyeing for years. Custom made for this space, the Kerf was the perfect staple piece.
The homeowner knew she wanted to maintain a full tiled-in vibe as homage to the original bathroom, however selected the classic 3×6 tile vs the more traditional MCM 4×4 tile. Our rendering software toggled back and forth between a blue and green option many times, and we are so pleased the selection landed on the stand-out green.

We love getting our hands on midcentury remodels; they are filled with plenty of surprises, twists, and turns. Even a “small” scale bathroom remodel like this required special consideration to ensure we not only paid our respects to the 1964 beauty with our designs, but also with the construction process.
