Design Inspiration in Santa Monica

I'm not afraid to whip out my camera and take pictures of things that I think are amazing.... including bathrooms in restaurants!

While in Santa Monica, CA for a wedding, I couldn't help myself when I saw some really incredible interior design.... so, after using the restroom at the Redwood Grille located in the 3rd Street Prominade, I had to stop and take a really good look at the wall tile.  
It was awesome! It looked like cross sections of a tree trunk. The tiles are cut in different sizes from 6x6 to 18x18 and several sizes in between. Even though this was a porcelain tile, each piece was unique and distinct from its neighbor!  And when paired with a beautiful glass tile, stone counter top, and sparkling chrome fixtures = perfection!

So, if you're ever in the Santa Monica area and want to use an awesome bathroom....


District: Downtown and Third Street Promenade
395 Santa Monica Place #308
Santa Monica, CA 90401

I also couldn't stop myself from taking a photo of the lobby at the Casa Del Mar.  It was absolutely stunning but in a completely different way than the bathroom up above :)

So much attention to detail!

So my photo doesn't do this justice... what-so-ever.  So, please visit Casa Del Mar's website and tour the photos, they are breathtaking!

  1. OH preach. Those "wooden" tiles are awesome. In San Antonio we stayed at the Grand Hyatt, the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at. The big bathrooms by the ball rooms were to die for. It was nicer than our room. I wanted to stay in there forever. hashtag bathroom envy lol (I spelled it out for emphasis)
