This gorgeous, little powder bath within my large 1920s renovation project, is now complete.
This is what she formerly looked like.
This powder bath had been updated sometime in the late 80s/ early 90s, and it needed a little freshening up. We wanted to keep the extremely high quality undermount cut crystal sink and the gold plated and cut crystal fittings by Sherle Wagner, that previously occupied the space. We also kept the cabinet base, because it was also in great condition.
Here she is now...
We changed out the granite countertops for this stunning piece of Arabescato Ceravoile marble that I found. I added the sophisticated backsplash detail and had the fabricators match the veining pattern of the marble across the splash onto the countertop. I love how this turned out!
We removed the skip trowel texture from the walls and hung an inky charcoal grasscloth, by Phillip Jeffries. I love the drama that is created where the lightness of the marble meets the darkness of the walls. The smooth texture of the marble against the natural texture of the grasscloth is a beautiful complement, as is the antique gold of the new sunburst mirror. It creates a beautiful contrast against the deep color of the grasscloth.
The new cabinet hardware and new smoky cabinet paint.
One of my favorite features I designed for this space is the floor. It is truly a statement piece. It is screenprinted cararra marble and it is stunning, in my opinion!
I absolutely adore the gold plated and cut crystal plumbing fittings by Sherle Wagner. They remind me of vintage atomizer perfume bottles, which I just love!
I hope you're having a great start to the week!
