The "Egg Yolk Yellow Tub & Brown Carpeted Bathroom" Makeover — Makeovers: Renovation Project

• Are you interested in sharing a decorating or renovation project with Apartment Therapy readers? I borrowed this idea from a multi-million dollar home in the Trousdale community in Beverly Hills, which was made famous by the film Valley of the Dolls. On the tub and sink wall we chose a textured porcelain tile that looks a bit like stacked stone. They lived in it for ten years, the second owners for 40 years.

We purchased our mid-century ranch house in 2012. They usually do and will give you an excellent price. The second bath came to us with an egg yolk yellow bathtub, and brown carpeting, yuck! Check out David’s kitchen makeover too: The “What the Architect May Have Done Today” Kitchen Makeover

Thanks, David! I ended up choosing a $13.00 per sf Terrazzo style floor tile with bits of aqua glass and mirror pieces to add a touch of glamour. Found a similar mirror on an overstock website for about $250. Contact the editors through our Makeover Project Submission Form. It serves as the focal point of the room so I thought why not. The first owners commissioned Architect Robert L Earl to build the house, and it was complete in 1962. The bath and whole home has been an exercise in High/Low design, as well as creating modern functional spaces with a nod to the past of the house. The illuminated mirror I saw at a kitchen and bath design showroom for over a $1,000.

The custom walnut vanity by a local woodworker was a splurge at $1,600.
