Annual event restored a century-old English Tudor to raise money for arts programs and grants
(Huntington Beach, CA, June 16, 2022) California Faucets was honored to once again have products featured in the celebrated Pasadena Showcase House of Design project. The show home is an annual event for The Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts, dating back to 1965, that helps to raise funds for the organization’s music programs, gifts, and grants. This year’s project was a thoughtful remodel of a stately 1905 English Tudor in South Pasadena’s Greene & Greene neighborhood. A handful of designers reimagined the interior spaces and landscaping while remaining true to the community’s historic origins.
Two designers selected California Faucets products for their rooms in the 2022 Pasadena Showcase House of Design.
Gwen Sukeena, of Sukeena Homes in Pasadena, designed the Powder Room. She embraced the home’s history by using one-of-a-kind pieces and masculine walls typical of the Tudor style but balanced with femininity on the floor and ceiling. Sukeena incorporated a custom vanity and mirror along with California Faucets’ Montecito, an elegant, Edwardian-style widespread faucet. The faucet features a Burnished Brass Uncoated living finish, which, over time, will age and patina for a vintage look.
“I chose California Faucets for many reasons, but one is the plethora of finish options available. The exquisite color variations allowed me to choose the perfect fit,” Sukeena said. “Secondly, I love the availability to mix and match styles. As designers, it’s important for us to add our individual touches. Lastly, the coordinated accessories, which keep the aesthetic consistent, are the icing on the cake.”
For the Sanctuary Bathroom, Denise Ranalli, with Interiors By Ranalli of Newport Beach, Calif., sought to create a calming space free of clutter. The room includes a soaking tub paired with California Faucets sculpture-like Modern Single Hole Tub Filler, limited color palette, and clean lines. In the shower, California Faucets’ Camden StyleDrain® by Christopher Grubb adds the perfect stylistic detail. Atop the floating vanity, Ranalli placed California Faucets’ Avila Series faucet in a soothing Satin Bronze PVD finish. Avila offers a transitional style, where fluid curves combine with angular precision to create a striking silhouette. Plus, the PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finish, the most durable decorative finish in the world, is guaranteed for life against tarnishing.
“I chose California Faucets for this Sanctuary Bath because it really is my go-to for all my design projects,” Ranalli said. “No matter the size of the project, I know I can rely on not only the sustainability of their product, but the beauty is beyond compare.”
George’s Kitchen & Bath, in Pasadena, a “go-to” showroom for the interior design community, supplied the California Faucets product. The family-owned and -operated showroom has been supplying high-quality plumbing fixtures and supplies since 1946.
The recently finished Pasadena Showcase House of Design was open for tours last month when it received rave reviews from the design community as well as visitors. To learn more about this year’s home and the annual event, visit https://pasadenashowcase.org/showcase-house/.
