5291 Valencia Circle, Rancho Santa Fe, CA
Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best hotels in the country, Rancho Valencia is a 5-star resort and spa property in Rancho Santa Fe comprised of 49 suites and villas set among the golf courses, polo fields and horse ranches of the San Dieguito Valley. Reminiscent of an old Spanish hacienda, Rancho Valencia’s clay-colored exterior, manicured gardens, ample exterior lounge space and romantic casitas make it one of the most desired getaways in the United States.
In 2012, the resort underwent a $30 million transformation, making it the award winning and world-class destination it is today. The cozy, private rooms and welcoming furniture and decor make guests feel as if they are alone in paradise. Each room features bold, rustic wood beds, warm lighting, and a private garden patio, providing a luxurious yet comfortable escape. Every space at Rancho Valencia was inspired by hacienda-style design, which even extends to the bathrooms, where vintage wood doors, deep soaking tubs and hand painted tiles complete estate-style guest rooms.
Get the Look: This attention to detail can be easily carried over into home bathroom design, where an emphasis on beautiful elements can often be forgotten. The replacement of standard shower tiles with hand-painted, patterned, or a custom tile design can bring the room to life and make a bath, shower, or simply the time we spend getting ready every morning much more enjoyable.
