Sweeping views of San Francisco Bay aren’t the only thing to draw the eye in this renovated master suite by interior designer Jiun Ho.
“The hillside home is in a traditional 1930s Spanish-style,” says Ho. “The owners wanted the ensuite to be in keeping with this look while also offering strong contemporary elements.”
“First, though, we stripped the suite back to the studs and reorganised the spaces to allow for a larger ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.”
For the classic connection, Ho finished the walls and floor of the bathroom in marble. The design is open-plan, with a slanted floor and strip drain on one side for the shower zone and a tub on the other. However, while the bathtub also has a traditional appearance, on the inside it’s ergonomically shaped and warm to the touch.
To contrast the old-world black and white stone surfaces, Ho introduced several modern elements by Italian design firm Boffi. These were a sculptural vanity with waterfall countertop and integrated sink, along with a pared-back, semi-industrial Half Pipe showerhead and matching wall-mounted tub mixer.
A frosted glass wall set between the walk-in wardrobe and ensuite is another modern touch.
