Remodeling a bathroom around existing layout, plumbing and windows requires surgical precision and laser focused design. The designer must carefully extract what’s broken, awkward or dated and insert elements that elevate function and feel without creating a patched together space.

After spending their summers in Florida’s Ponte Vedra beach, a former Atlanta-based couple decided to set sail and relocate to this coastal town full-time. Built in the 1970s with a dated look and feel to match, it was clear to the couple that their newly purchased, 2,000 square foot condominium needed a total makeover. So, the homeowners called local designer, Amanda Webster of Amanda Webster Designs to help them achieve just the right kind of coastal aesthetic that would truly embody the feeling of an oceanfront getaway.

This California Beach House Has All The Patterns

Posted by Steven Schrenk on Jun 3, 2016 9:30:00 AM

Out on California’s Central Coast in Avila Beach, there’s a beach getaway with a design that’s stunning both for what it incorporates and what it omits. When designer Stephanie Rothbauer envisioned the total home renovation, which started off as just a bathroom (don’t they all), she turned to her surroundings for inspiration.

And in San Luis Obispo County that means foggy days and soft color neutrals of sand and shells and rugged browns of weathered wooden piers. More sunbleached driftwood than twinkling turquoise. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) The designer used it all to create a luxury, sustainable retreat with recycled glass kitchen countertops reflecting the subtle sparkle of the Pacific.

“I wanted a coastal feel, not screaming beach,” Rothbauer said “I chose tones natural to the local environment.”

Her interior which incorporates Vetrazzo’s Martini Flint recycled glass countertops in the kitchen, three bathrooms and a fireplace hearth, is all about mixing materials: concrete flooring, plaster and wood walls, wood veneer doors, recycled glass tiles and even porcelain tile on the stair risers, all in a sandy palette.
