For inspiration in this particular project, Ggem’s client was thinking not only of a very specific beach in Santa Barbara, California, but a specific time period too. “She was thinking of vintage Santa Barbara, a time from before she was born,” Ggem says. “So I pulled vintage advertisements from Catalina and Santa Barbara to see how they sold beaches as fun, wide and sandy. So that’s how this bathroom ended up.” 2. Durable Finishes and a Sense of Service A fully tiled wall gives the space a beach-changing-room vibe, which hits on a number of related elements. “Beach bathrooms need a service feel,” she says. “They’re hardy and easy to maintain.” Ggem likes to use fake wood tile (seen here) in her beach-themed bathrooms, because actually being near the beach means the inevitable presence of sand inside her clients’ homes. “Sand will scratch the crap out of wood floors,” she says. “So the long-plank fake-wood tile has been a godsend.” Durable finishes lend a sense of casualness, which is also largely associated with beach lifestyles.
