  • 2013 Master Design Silver Award for Bathrooms Less Than $30,000

PROJECT SUMMARY:

A couple that frequently entertained guests from their professional circle wanted a new powder room to make a memorable, dramatic impression. The clients wanted to express their affinity for Asian and contemporary themes in an alluring atmosphere. This Asian-inspired powder room conveys a glittering sense of drama in a small space. The room is entered through a simple, elegant black pocket door with Shoji-style panels, replacing the existing swing door. A wall was built to conceal the venting system, allowing for the addition of a free-standing vanity. An impressive wall of tile gleams in deep hues of ebony, gold and dark brown, illuminated by gold leaf lighting, which is activated by sensor when entering the room. A curved mirror with a rustic Asian-themed wood frame is the backdrop for a stunning arced onyx sink with gold fixtures. The sink appears to glow with creamy luminescence atop the free-standing vanity with Shoji-style doors. A natural stone floor in dark black with sparkles of metallic gold is a striking foundation for this extraordinary room. The experience of a visit to this powder room with its Asian-inspired glamour and sophisticated design discipline is seductive and unforgettable.

The original powder room was dark and uninspiring. There was an exhaust vent coming up through the existing vanity that could not be moved.

The colors, materials and fixtures in the existing powder room were all run of the mill and the walls were covered with pink and teal patterned wallpaper.
