I'm so excited to share my latest bathroom renovation project with you! This beautiful home is located in the coastal town of La Jolla and is perched above the beautiful coastline. My client recently purchased a new home and we are wrapping up on renovating the interior.
This is the third project that I have worked on with this client and she has been wanting to incorporate a Japanese soaking tub from the very beginning. We finally had just the right project to make that happen! Using the Japanese soaking tub as our jumping off point, we decided to makeover this bathroom in a Japandi Style.
WHAT IS JAPANDI STYLE
Japandi style isn't necessarily a new trend but the awareness around this style has become very popular recently and frankly, I think it's here to stay.
The term Japandi comes from "Japanese + Scandinavian = Japandi". Aesthetically, it's minimal, modern, stylish and functional. It's zen, mindful, ritualistic with a dash of Hygge (which focuses on cozy, wellness and contentment).
In this project, we incorporated elements like a hammered copper Japanese soaking tub, black, warm wood tones and textures, shoji screens and a wet room for Japanese style bathing.
JAPANESE AND SCANDINAVIAN INSPIRATION
JAPANDI BATHROOM - WET ROOM & JAPANESE STYLE BATHING
In Japanese culture, bathing is a mindfulness practice. Unlike Americans, the bath isn't used for cleaning, it's used more for relaxing.
Cleaning is done in the shower before hand so we created a Wet Room with has an area for showering as you walk in and then the Japanese soaking tub is located in the back area.
For the feature wall behind the soaking tub, we installed a gorgeous slab of Cosentino Dekton (in Laurent for you design enthusiasts). We also installed a solar tube in the ceiling above so that the natural light would highlight the beautiful surface details of the Dekton and the hammered copper Japanese soaking tub. Our Brizo plumbing fixtures used throughout the bathroom elevate the whole experience.
Wooden floors are often incorporated in Japandi style bathrooms to add warm to the space and softness underfoot.
