 Jennifer Garner is the champion of celebrating beauty and practicality simultaneously in her home. Everything from her warm, Scandi lighting to her family fruit garden screams utilitarian coziness.  Now, the 13 Going on 30 actress has given us a new clean-lined space to fawn over: her mid-century modern bathroom.

A recent Instagram post shows Jennifer Garner styling her hair with Virtue Lab’s Purifying Leave-In Conditioner and 6-in-1 Styler, but the background is the real star of the show. The Alias lead’s bathroom is styled minimally with a satisfying combination of natural materials like exposed wood beams and a small decorative tree with modern elements like long, industrial sconces and gold hardware. Jennifer’s shower is swoon-worthy - four tall glass walls surround the white and gray marble shower with built-in shelves for holding bathing products. Designers love the mid-century modern ideas in the space.

Artem Kropovinsky, a New York-based interior designer and owner of Arsight says that Jennifer Garner’s room perfectly encapsulates all of the elements of a mid-century modern bathroom. He says ‘midcentury modern design is a popular style for bathrooms, as it is both stylish and functional. It is characterized by its clean lines, geometric shapes, and use of natural materials.’ 

Some key elements of the style for artem include sleek and elegant white marble with harmonious gray streaks with gold hardware to add a touch of luxury. Architect and design expert at Bark and Chase Julio Arco especially love the shower in the space. He says ‘the combination of gold hardware and white marble with gray streaks is an excellent choice for a bathroom, especially in a midcentury modern design. The gold hardware adds a touch of elegance and warmth to the space, contrasting beautifully with the cool tones of the white marble with gray streaks.’

Like Jennifer Garner, Julio emphasizes the importance of practicality in design, especially the design of a bathroom. He cautions ‘don't forget to incorporate functional features into the design, such as adequate storage and lighting. In my research, I've found that a well-designed space not only looks good but also enhances the well-being and comfort of the occupants.’ Jennifer Garner’s space perfectly strikes this balance with sleek, carefully designed gray cabinets and bold LED light fixtures.
