For the bathroom inside a renovated Hollywood bungalow, architect Noah Walker used a simple palette of gray and white tile, black countertops, and stainless steel fixtures. "I love minimal bathrooms with natural light, so less is more, and pay attention to the details," he advises.
The sun cuts down into the upstairs bathroom of this slatted, light-filled Sydney home via skylights, casting rhythmic shadows of roof beams onto the floor and walls. The bathroom includes a cantilevered toilet by Catalano.
Even better than minimalist is green and minimalist. Just ask Eric Garcetti, environmental crusader and now-mayor of Los Angeles! By putting solar power and recycled materials to use, he and his partner transformed a mid-century house in Echo Park into a sustainable home with garden terraces and panoramic views. The sleek master bath includes a walk-in tub hemmed in with seamless glass walls.
