PROJECT SUMMARY:

This multiple-award winning Asian-inspired powder room conveys a glittering sense of drama in a small space. 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. 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.

2014 ASID Awards 2nd Place - Bath Before 1

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

After a wall was built to conceal the venting system, a free-standing vanity was added. Treasured collectibles are displayed in a trio of illuminated niches.

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.

In the new design, an impressive wall of tile gleams in deep hues of ebony, gold and dark brown, illuminated by gold leaf lighting. The sink appears to glow with creamy luminescence atop the free-standing vanity with Shoji-style doors.

Entering the powder room from the dark hallway was cramped and awkward.
