One Room Challenge - Spring 2021 - Bathroom Remodel - Week 2

Updated: Sep 14, 2022

Here we are in week 2 of the One Room Challenge™!

ORC is a fantastic challenge if you are looking for inspiration or want to know more about how to transform a room in eight weeks. It is fun, creative, and inspirational! This spring, as an interior designer, I will show you my process of turning an outdated guest bathroom into a bright and elegant space!

"First time on my blog? Welcome, and thanks for coming by! My name is Samia Verbist. I am a French Interior Designer based in Huntington Beach, California. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Interior Architecture in Paris, France, and created my own interior design company in California 5 years ago. I love creating interesting designs for my clients and creating interiors that go above and beyond what they would have thought of. I love wallpaper, gold, and my fab color is turquoise! My favorite places are Palm Springs and French Polynesia!"


If you missed week 1, here is a reminder of the project. My clients use their guest bathroom occasionally for guests, and since they bought their house a few years ago, they have kept it as-is:

This week was dedicated to my client's wishes. When I start a project, I always discuss with clients what they like, what they have in mind for the space, and how they use it. I want them to show me their inspiration and make some recommendations for creating some inspiration boards. It's collaborative work. I never impose a design. I'd instead suggest it based on my clients' lifestyles and wishes. That is why I take the time to meet my clients before we start working on the design concept.

I recommend using Pinterest because there is a large variety of styles already available. We can share our boards, discuss them, what they like, and dislike, and what is possible or not recommended. This helps me a lot in creating the vision for the room.

For this project, we will create a bright, elegant bathroom for their guests. The chosen style tends to be modern with a touch of earth tone (wood).

These Pinterest inspirations provide a good overview of my vision for this guest bathroom!

As you can see, we decided to have all hardware in brass and tiles in marble style!

Now that we have the Vision defined, I will create a concept board based on the color, style, and material we agreed with my clients!

So, see you next week for the next step: the lovelyfantasticconcept board.

Have a nice week!

Your Dedicated French Interior Designer
