One Room Challenge - Spring 2021 - Bathroom Remodel - Week 3

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 This spring, as an interior designer, I will show you my process to turn an outdated guest bathroom into a bright and elegant space!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

So, this week was dedicated to the selection of all the material. I visited several stores to look for tiles, mosaic, paint color, etc. Inspiration boards helped me a lot focusing on the right products. I collected samples and presented them to my client. After a long reflexion with Toni, we agreed on all the material and vanity, hardware, lighting and here is the result:

All hardware and lighting will be brass, same porcelain tile for the floor and all the walls, but we're adding a diamond shaped mosaic tile insert to add a touch of modernity, and a sleek finish warm wood vanity to go with the modern style we wanted for this bathroom.

Let's have a look at the to-do list...


  • Design a new bathroom Done

  • Select new tiles for floor and walls
