Powder Rooms

Powder bathrooms are like a jewel box.  You never know what fun surprises they may hold inside.  We believe that a powder room does not have to match the rest of the house.  It can be a fun place to experiment with color, pattern, and texture!  It is a space that you, the homeowner, does not see everyday so you are not as likely to get tired of a crazy bold and dazzling powder bath.

We are currently working on a some powder bathrooms for our clients, which we plan to reveal to you at a later date. In the meantime, here are pictures of some of our favorites. Enjoy!


How chic is this? Bobby McAlpine & Susan Ferrier bring the outdoors in by using this urn as a sink and adding warmth with the draperies that slightly puddle on the floor.  


Dan Carithers fabricated this powder wall in a wonderful Rose Tarlow Fabric, which softens the space as well as dampers the sound.  And what a FABULOUS TRUMEAU!  WOW...

Barry Dixon designed this small but chic powder bathroom.  We love the detailed "antiqued" framed mirror and custom limestone vanity.  And something a simple as FRESH flowers makes all the difference.


People tend to think that pink only belongs in a nursery or girls bedroom - we disagree!  The softness of the pale pink walls, amazing Venetian mirror mixed with the carrara marble makes this space POP.  It would not look the same with white walls - agreed?


This is a jewel box!  What a surprise once you open the door.   The kelly green is such a great an unexpected backdrop to the hand-applied flowers. And we love the greek key detail on the vanity. 

Clean and elegant is sometimes the way to go!

This powder is designed by Palmer Weiss.  What a fun retro inspired wallpaper!


Massucco Warner Miller Interior Design designed this beauty.
We love the classic Clarence House wallpaper.


Sometimes a neutral powder bath speaks for itself!


"Hollywood Hills home, the powder room walls are upholstered in a fabric by Florence Broadhurst, and the sink fittings are by Dornbracht. " Designed by Ames Ingham


Love!  Love!  Love!   the Waterworks tile.  The daffodil yellow is just so exquisite.


Console turned vanity!
