Designing A Small Room: It’s all in the details
The Powder Room is a VIP when it comes to spaces on the main floor. We knew both the client and guests would love the attention that the little things would bring to a room – especially one that is used so frequently. Together, we decided on a plan that was more or less equal parts interior design and interior decoration.
We had six 1” thick, salvaged, Carrera marble slabs, purchased from Earthwise many moons ago. These clients had been holding onto them until just the right project came up, and the Main Floor Powder Room of their 1902 Victorian home was it!
Our Steampunk concept married well with bronze/copper metal finishes, including the Brizo sink faucet, drain, and p trap, along with the Brizo wall hook and bathroom accessories in the room. The sink is a tiny boat sink, perfect for the space and passage through it!
We selected the Cole and Sons “Flying Machines” wallpaper for it’s quirky imagery and rich color. These rich sepia and charcoal tones suit this small powder room well, and a wall mural of bulbous shapes peak the curiosity for the houseguests that enter the room. Thanks to Richard at Daly’s for his unending support, and Frank at D9WC for the beautiful wallpaper installation.
As you are leaving the room, look up at the niche above the door and you will see an exquisite model of a wooden boat, a piece to strike the fancy of those who enjoy the mysteries of the Industrial Age.
The counter stools are Bess by Camerich, upholstered with durable Navy Blue Crypton fabric and natural wood legs.
What an exciting combination with a white, slab quartz countertop and dark wood cabinetry!
