Goop is the company founded byactress Gwyneth Paltrow; what started in 2008 from her kitchen table as a lifestyle newsletter has grown into a full-fledged website where readers can find information about wellness, work/life balance, health, fitness, fashion and more. Goop is growing so much that they needed to expand their offices into a bungalow next door, and they asked our friend,Melanie Burstin, to create an open and airy space for them.
We worked with Melanie on a number of projects while she was a part of former HGTV personality Emily Henderson’s company,stylebyemilyhenderson.com, including the complete remodel of Henderson’s new L.A. home. Melanie now works withHomepolish.com, a design service that matches clients with designers, contractors and project management.
When Melanie contacted eFaucets.com about partnering to makeover the new Goop bathrooms and a kitchenette, we said, “Yes!” immediately and contacted our friends at MoenandKingston Brass to help bring Melanie’s vision to life.
“The building itself is very rustic, so I wanted to avoid bringing in anything else that felt too far in that style,” Melanie toldVogue Magazine.
Both bathrooms are also quite small, she noted when we talked about faucet and fixture options, so introducing storage options without taking up a lot of space was key. The vanity is just 24 inches wide and 22 inches deep, perfect for tucking into the corner with room left for the commode.
Melanie’s use of timeless design elements continued into the kitchenette where Goop staffers often gather for coffee and grabbing healthy pick-me-ups throughout the day.
In addition to Kohler’sCruette kitchen faucetwith pull-down sprayer in oil-rubbed bronze, Melanie chose a classic,white Blanco Silgranit kitchen sink. The faucet is made to deliver a strong spray while only using 1.8 gallons per minute, which is required under California law, and the sink is constructed of superior scratch and dent resistant material so its good looks last for years.
