Interior designer Tiffany Baker transformed her California-based clients’ primary bathroom into a beachy and modern wellness oasis with steam. The resulting remodel took this bathroom from cluttered and dated to highly functional, beautiful and a perfect complement to the couple’s active lifestyle.
While the couple was initially unfamiliar with the possibility of a home steam shower, Braker introduced them to the concept with MrSteam. After discovering the wellness benefits and different therapies available, including aromatherapy with the AromaSteam System, they were sold, opting for the iDream Steam Package, which includes aromatherapy, chroma lighting and an audio system, with the sleek Linear SteamHead and iSteam3 control. With the full range of therapy enhancements, the couple will enjoy the ultimate in relaxation and athletic recovery among the many benefits of a steam shower. To accompany the system, Braker added a luxurious custom marble bench to allow her clients to take full advantage of their new home wellness retreat.
Braker sought to evoke memories of the ocean – and her clients’ favorite vacation spot in Hawaii – with a modern subway tile in a sea blue and with a white chandelier reminiscent of seashells. The blue offers a subtle pop of color against the large sand-colored tiles throughout. Within the enclosed shower, Braker incorporates a smaller neutral tile against the shower floor as well as a unique blue, beige and gray marble in the shower bench and border.
Where there was once an outdated garden tub, Braker brought in a fresh freestanding soaking tub. Without the extra space taken up by the built-in tub tile, she found more room in the shower for a custom bench for the couple to use while steaming in their new steam shower. To balance the sleek modern details, Braker incorporate vintage and classic accents with distinct character, such as the rustic shiplap paneling, brass hardware and reclaimed wood doors.
With all of her clients, Braker aims to design for longevity and wellness, incorporating furniture and décor that is flexible enough to support the essentials such as higher vanities, wall-mounted faucets, custom drawers and cabinets and more. Steam fits seamlessly into her plans for a wellness-oriented, long-lasting design.
