A renovation transformed an unused nook into a full-service home office for a talented writer. A mother-of-pearl wall treatment flanked by crystal sconces evokes the elegance seen throughout the rest of the home. The curved lines of the desk chair and albino cowhide rug assure the space as functional as it is chic.
A mother of pearl accent wall is paired with a sleek but simple basin sink in this California powder room, imbuing a sense of understated glamour. The vanity's open metal base visually expands the space, and a petite chandelier adds sparkle.
This luxury bathroom features a metallic pearl plaster wall finish with cut stone columns, chandeliers and an expansive double vanity. The window above the tub shutters for privacy at the touch of a button. A spacious walk-in shower features steam, spray and waterfall options.
"This garage remodel was designed for a UCLA professor who wanted a stylish home office," says Ron Cohen, CEO of Pearl Remodeling. "Because of zoning restrictions at the time of the remodel, we could not legally convert the garage into a living space, so we kept the garage door operational and updated the interior so it could still be enjoyed as a workspace. We installed new drywall on all walls and ceiling, and light-colored flooring and paint to brighten up the room. Open shelving with complementary decor give this study a modern touch with lots of room to personalize the space."
This luxurious master bedroom is captivating to the eye with lush pearl drapery on a faux canopied bed that is suspended from an inset in the ceiling. Light blue walls with pearl crown molding provide a relaxing surround to a peaceful sitting area with cozy fireplace.
Designer Jennifer Duneier gives the bathroom a complete overhaul. Large square tiles are used to cover the walls, creating a clean, contemporary setting. Mother-of-pearl tiles border the top of the room to add a touch of sparkle.
Designer Holly A. Kopman pairs a mother-of-pearl nightstand with soft gray and white bedding to create a soothing bedroom. A faux fur rug provides a soft step next to the bed while an attached wall scone shines light on the headboard.
A geometric tile pattern accents the shower's back wall and is repeated above the black marble countertop at the vanity. A thick wood frame with large nailhead finish frames the vanity mirror. Pearl colored marble tile surrounds the shower nook with a cream and neutral curtain finishing the space.
To provide a dramatic entrance into the home, a stunning slab of quartzite was chosen as wall art for the breakfast area which is viewed from the front door. A fluted glass chandelier illuminates the quartzite, while adding glamour to the room. A sideboard inlaid with mother of pearl completes the space.
