Bathroom of the Week: A Master Suite in Topanga Canyon, Scribbles Included

March 31, 2017

Yesterday we took a look at Serena Mitnik-Miller’s low-key kitchen in Topanga Canyon; today we’re admiring her bedroom and bath situation. Here’s a look.

 The master bedroom—cream walls, cream bedding, ceramic lighting in cream—has an easy undone look. Adding to the texture: a nightstand with leather sling shelf, shiplap walls (see Expert Advice: The Enduring Appeal of Shiplap), and relaxed linens.
