Our lovely clients, both busy young professionals with kids under five, needed more space and a much-needed update to their home. This was our second residential interior design project with these clients and they wanted more functional, light, bright, interesting and layered spaces. 

What resulted was a home design that had a little bit of everything. In the end, it was mostly a transitional and contemporary interior design transformation. Keep reading to see how this beautiful home project turned out!

In this post, we will cover several aspects of this Bay Area interior design project: in this home remodel, we tackled five key home spaces: 

  1. Master bath remodel
  2. Modern Fireplace Remodel
  3. Pool Bath Refresh

Primary Bathroom Remodel

In the Primary Bathroom our aim was to create a space that used natural elements and was relaxing, light and bright. Natural colors and materials were used to create a space that was functional but layered.

This design and timeless-looking bathroom is also on-trend. Top 2023 bathroom trends that we integrated into this project were integrating more white (the paint), as well as natural tones (such as this vanity and above-the-tub chandelier).

When redesigning the shower area, handmade zellige tile adds texture and color variation creating a light, bright and natural feeling. For the floor, sandblasted limestone provides a cool and warm tone, creating color depth. Our clients love how it feels on bare feet. In addition to this shower remodel, we added heated floors and a custom white oak niche near the bathtub so our clients can enjoy long, relaxing baths and have a place to put their essentials.

Also on trend for the modern bathroom is a spa-feel. This remodeled bathroom definitely gives off refreshing bathroom spa vibes with these added details!  

Vanity Remodel

In the vanity area, we created a custom-designed double vanity along with statement lighting and mirrors to create interest. Not only did this new modern bathroom vanity add lots of storage, but it also helped accomplish that warm feeling. For the vanity backsplash, we turned the zellige shower tile horizontally to add additional texture and interest.

Fireplace Remodel

For the fireplace, we used a dimensional wavy marble tile to create drama. The warmth of the white oak mantel balanced the tiles’ cool colors. Recent 2023 home trends show that homeowners are looking for more light and moody artwork, just like this art piece and remodeled fireplace show!

Pool Bath Remodel

Our clients wanted the Pool Bath to be easily accessible – and at the same time, a space where both their young kids and adult guests felt at home. For this bath remodel, we created a rough and tumble space, being thoughtful with the floor tile. We used penny tile in custom designed stripes, allowing the darker color to cover most of the floor; so dirt and mess weren’t as noticeable.


A fun palm tree wallpaper amps up the design – talk about big time pool vibes! These vibrant hues and bold wallpaper are inviting and so fun, perfect for the pool bathroom remodel. The gold plumbing and accessories give a classy, clean look while the wicker lighting adds another layer of color and texture.

Office Space Remodel

Since working from home is the new normal, it was essential to our clients that their modernized office space was impeccably designed. Considering their space is shared between both husband and wife, we wanted to incorporate a more neutral look. To do this, we designed a zoom backdrop using a fun, neutral wallpaper. Now, they can work simultaneously in style in their remodeled home office!

Our clients were extremely happy with the results of their remodel. Emerson Grace Design takes pride in helping our clients transform their Bay Area homes into a space that feels unique and comfortable and personal. We’d love to help you on your home remodel journey.
