From Debra: We recently finished renovating two of our mid-century home’s bathrooms. Since they are adjacent to one another, my first inclination was to combine them into one large space. However, after living in the house for a few years, I realized how convenient it was to have both, especially since we are a family of five. Utilizing the original layout and cabinetry design, we were able to preserve most of their mid-century characteristics while updating the decor and making them more current and functional.

In choosing the finishes, I turned to the rest of the house for inspiration. Drawing colors from the redwood, brick, the concrete flooring and the brass fixtures throughout the house, I choose to use soft whites, green tones and some pink hues. I fell in love with the Fireclay tile pattern named Old Cairo a year ago, and immediately knew then that it was the one for this project. After playing around with the color combinations in Fireclay’s Color-It application, I settled on two: Tusk and Peabody: Tusk to brighten the space and Peabody to coordinate with the green tones of the concrete floors.
