Updated: Sep 14, 2022
Already week 5 of the One Room Challenge™!
ORC is a motivational design event when you are looking for inspiration. It is fun, creative, and inspirational! This spring, as an interior designer, I will show you my process of turning an outdated guest bathroom into a bright and elegant space!
"First time on my blog? Welcome, and thanks for coming by! My name is Samia Verbist. I am a French Interior Designer based in Huntington Beach, California. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Interior Architecture in Paris, France, and created my own interior design company in California 5 years ago. I love creating interesting designs for my clients and creating interiors that go above and beyond what they would have thought of. I love wallpaper, gold, and my favorite color is turquoise! My favorite places are Palm Springs and French Polynesia!"
This week was dedicated to the demo! My contractor Armando removed all the tiles on the walls, the floor, the vanity, lighting, and of course, the ugly fabric cornice above the bathtub my client hated! It was a lot of work and mess!
