An elegant bathroom design is the cherry on top that can take your carefully-curated home to the next level. Clearly, Amber Valletta understands this.

The model's bathroom idea celebrates a warm, neutral color palette. Her LA-based designer, Studio Rob Diaz, designed the space around natural textures: from a brown marble sink to a wooden lamp and organically shaped mirror, the whole room feels fluid and organic. Beige walls form a warm and calming backdrop against which the textures stand out. Brass hardware brings a touch of shine.

Valletta's beige color choice is one of the biggest interior design trends of 2024. However, she taps into the popular trend in a timeless manner. This is largely due to the beige and brown marble that forms both her sink and the baseboards of her bathroom.

'Marble decor in bathrooms epitomizes luxury and sophistication, creating a spa-like ambiance that promotes relaxation and indulgence,' says Westchester-based interior designer Nina Lichtenstein of Valletta's marble bathroom. She continues, 'By styling around marble with a focus on simplicity, elegance, and natural elements, you can enhance the beauty of this timeless material and transform your bathroom into a captivating retreat.'

Nina Lichtenstein is the founder and principal home designer at her eponymous design studio, based in Westchester, NY. Nina believes that home design should capture a family’s unique spirit by how it serves the family's daily needs while nourishing the soul. She has been celebrated for designing, renovating, and building elegant living spaces. 

Studio Rob Diaz has expertly accessorized the bathroom to emphasize the beauty of this material. The plant on the countertop and the rattan and wood lamp perfectly complement it. Lichtenstein says: 'Bringing in natural elements such as wood or rattan accessories add warmth and texture to the space. A wooden vanity or woven baskets can soften the coolness of marble and create a balanced atmosphere.'

The large bathroom mirror similarly creates a warm, organic feeling. 'Installing a statement mirror with an elegant frame to enhance the bathroom's aesthetic is a great idea,' Lichtenstein tells Homes & Gardens. 'A large mirror not only adds functionality but also reflects light, making the space feel more expansive.'

The striped, black, tan, and white towel adds a bit of texture and personality to Valletta's neutral bathroom. To recreate this look, Lichtenstein suggests: 'Introduce soft textiles like plush towels, a cozy bath mat, or a fabric shower curtain in complementary colors to enhance the comfort and coziness of the bathroom.'
