Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner, and Laurence Olivier — what do these timeless actresses and actors have to do with a Redondo Beach home? That’s just it, they are all regarded as classic icons of old Hollywood glamour, and that’s exactly what one young couple with a small child from Northern California was seeking when they bought their first home just south of Los Angeles.
With any home renovation, there’s a need and desire to improve the look of the space, but with this home, the renovation went beyond aesthetics. The functionality of the space was also a top priority. As you can see from the before photos (below), the master bathroom was in need of a major overhaul. Not only was room outdated, but it desperately needed space and practicality planning.

Some interior designers let things like walls and windows dictate their plan. But, not my team and I! For this home, we even moved and replaced the window. This proved to be more of a challenge than we initially anticipated with historical district regulations standing in our way. The end result was utterly stunning and flowed perfectly with the home’s architecture.

Can you tell my favorite part of this Redondo Beach home?!
It’s, of course, the flooring in the master bath! This exquisite tile is from Cement Tile Shop. What I love the most about this look is the way it perfectly blended classic and vintage. We also used plumbing fixtures by Ginger for a similar effect.
