La Casita de Romantica

One man’s passion project turns a Poway home into “The Little House of Romance”

A Bathtub Built for Two

This month is all about love, and what could be more romantic than a bathtub built for two? Builder and homeowner George Meyer drew inspiration from the work of Cliff May, Richard Requa, and other esteemed architects, whose Spanish beauties are sprinkled throughout San Diego. His fiancée Gina Florentino hand-sketched the tile layouts seen here, and in the kitchen. The aspiring designer also envisioned the custom wrought-iron light fixtures. “She really has an eye,” Meyer boasted. Together, they crafted a living space true to its style, from the red-clay Lincoln pavers up. The master bath features exposed dark-wood beams, a flat-tiled shower, and hand-painted sinks.
