Megan’s bathroom was already kind of sweet and simple — perfectly serviceable. But as the only bathroom in her and her husband’s 1930s Sonoma house, they felt it should be a little more spectacular. So they mixed their styles to create a still-simple and sweet but definitely more bold bathroom.

From Megan:

Our 1930s Sonoma home has only one bathroom and so it had to be spectacular! We incorporated a very eclectic mix of our two styles beginning with my dream of a bold Mexican floor tile, the original 1930 art deco tub was salvaged, the vanity was a thrift store purchase and to appease my husband’s modern style, the faucet and wall were designed (and built by him) with very clean lines.

To add some whimsy we added a very sparkly, girly pendant that twinkles over the sink and a cast deer head over the toilet — a little fun for the fellas. My husband is a very talented designer and cabinet maker — yeah I lucked out — so he designed, built and installed the custom wall paneling, inset mirror and window trim. We are thrilled with our bathroom!
