Bathrooms We Love: Beauty Vlogger Kristin Johns Showcases Her Glistening Bathroom in Los Angeles
The YouTuber gives a closer look at the bathroom she broadcasts to her half million subscribers.
Kristin Johns: My husband and I moved into our house last February‚ and the bathroom was one of the main spaces we wanted to redo. It had a tiled-in standalone tub and a single vanity‚ and it was laid out in a way that was more closed off‚ which made it feel small and dark. I do a lot of work with skincare brands and bath and body products‚ so I knew I needed a bathroom that had good lighting and photographed well. As it was‚ it looked too outdated. We wanted our whole house to be bright and airy‚ but still cozy‚ and that definitely extended to the bathroom‚ where we decided to knock down some walls and add a window.
My favorite feature is the shower. Before‚ it was tiny‚ but the new one is huge‚ with big glass panels‚ gold fixtures‚ and small marble honeycomb tile on the floor. Adding wood and gold accents made it warmer. If you do too much white‚ it can feel hotel-ish. The whole layout is completely different from what it was before. Now I’m actually looking for opportunities to take videos in the bathroom.

Vanity Lighting: “We have recessed lighting that delivers bright daytime light‚ which is good for makeup‚” says Kristin. “But we put Edison bulbs in the fixture above the two mirrors‚ because they’re warmer and they’re calming at night.”
