Steal This Look: The Compact Family Bath, Beach House Edition

August 09, 2016 4:00 AM

BY Margot Guralnick

“I fell in love with the look of this apron sink from Home Depot and built the design around that,” says Jenny Wolf of the compact main bathroom in her family’s East Hampton cottage. She transformed the 55-square-foot space from dark to light and from worn-out to shipshape, courtesy of whitewashed wood-paneled walls and accents of “mixed metals.” Wolf runs Jenny Wolf Interiors of New York and kindly detailed her sources. Here’s how to re-create the look.

Jenny Wolf Interiors Compact Family Bath

Above: The space is just big enough for a glass-enclosed shower and is shared by Wolf, her husband, and their young daughter. Lumber for the shiplap paneling—cedar five-inch planks on the walls and two-inch planks on the ceiling—came from Home Depot.
