Louise Roe's Bathroom Makeover Is Luxe Old Hollywood Style Brought Back to Life
Just last month, Louise Roe, stylist, TV host, journalist, and author of Front Roe, announced that she was expecting her first child with husband Mackenzie Hunkin. Less than a year ago, the couple moved into their three-bedroom Hollywood Hills home, the perfect setting for welcoming the little one on the way. Admitting to Architectural Digest that they aren't fans of the modern homes so ubiquitous in L.A., Roe and Hunkin spent a year searching for the perfect place to settle down. "I just knew immediately, even just from the photos online and before we'd seen it, that it was the one," admitted Roe.
Built in 1935, the traditional three-bedroom three-bath home boasts many of its original features, though the multihyphenate did do some updating. Taking on the ultimate bathroom makeover, Roe transformed the master bath into a sophisticated balance of minimalistic sensibilities and Old Hollywood charm. "For the master bathroom, I wanted a clean, bright finish that also didn't feel too modern." Roe, who describes her style for the home as "very calm and a little masculine," says, "I love a neutral palette dotted with colored accessories, lots of books, and as many antiques as possible." This aesthetic plays out in the bathroom with gilded faucets and drawer pulls accenting sleek white quartz and balanced by the traditional black windowpane of the shower.
