For this 2016 SouthPark home, the clients had requested Karen integrate classic, clean lines offset with trendy gold accents in their bathroom update. To pull this off, she made certain the shower tile was laid vertically to give a more contemporary feel while also tying in traditional marble hexagon tile and wall paper for a pretty, transitional look. The previous bath had a tub and shower with a dropped ceiling, which Kettler raised to match the rest of the room. She also added in, as a focal point, the round window.

The end result is a space that’s on trend, but also classic; it toes the line perfectly between clean and stylish. As with all of Kettler’s projects, every inch is utilized creatively and functionally.
