Shannon McLaren’s British family and her time spent living in England inspired her Newport Beach home’s bathroom design. The pink hues, shape of the tub, and floral tile wall are callbacks to 1970s British rock ’n’ roll and glam.
“It’s all about balance,” she says. “Design is kind of like cooking; you’re playing around with things without overdoing it in one area.” Because she was going through a divorce during the process, McLaren says she was able to emphasize a more feminine style.
“The rug is an heirloom from the 1920s,” McLaren says.
“The counter is onyx, and it reminds me of a grandma’s counter. I liked the nostalgic feeling.”
3 PINK TILE
“It was originally supposed to be white, but there was a delay. The pink was in stock, so it was a happy mistake.”
“The wavy shape of the bathtub is representative of the ’70s.”
5 ROSE TREE
“I think it feels romantic, and it’s nice to have for styling.”
6 FLORAL TILE
“I found the floral tile first. I wanted something impactful, and it just sort of worked.”
