A corner of the traditional living room draws interest with a 19th-century French oil painting. A beautiful trophy base-shaped lamp sits on an elegant green-and-black commode against the earthy yellow wall.
This Christmas display features red hydrangeas and stargazer lilies in a blown glass tortoise vase atop a demi-lune commode hand-painted with a harlequin pattern, gold menorah votives and a bell with a filigree handle.
Square stone tiles adorn the entire wall behind the vanity and commode in this modern, neutral bathroom. The floating vanity is perfect for the small powder room. Modern fixtures complete the design scheme.
An Italian serpentine walnut three-drawer commode, a Tuscan carved giltwood mirror and an 18th century English chinoiserie tall case clock are in the foyer designed by Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs for the Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta. The black-and-white floor has a zig-zag pattern. On the commode are two gold Ormolu ornaments on lucite bases and a pair of 1930’s Chinese green hardstone lamps with lavender shades. Two 19th century regency-style chairs with an ebony finish are underneath framed original landscape oils by Tyler Colgan.
A retrofitted 18th century French commode is the center of a powder room flaunting gold fittings and a ruffled china sink. The fixtures are 24 karat gold-plated. The hand towels are embroidered with the words "Pour vous," French for "For you."
The luxurious, spa-style master bathroom from the HGTV Dream Home 2014 features two separate vanities with espresso-finished Shaker style cabinets and sleek white countertops mixed with hand-scraped bamboo floors and brushed nickel photographer's pendants. A sliding door adds privacy to the commode.
The kid's bathroom at HGTV Dream Home 2014 combines durable neutral materials with bright, kid-friendly touches. An area containing the commode, shower and stainless steel hooks for clothing and towels can be closed off from the rest of the space. A glass door makes the space-saving shower seem larger.
This bath commode area shows how wallpaper with a large pattern can be used successfully in a small space. The cool blue background and crisp white trim and floors keep the area from looking closed in; the little glass table provides an additional surface without overwhelming the space.
A commode nook sits off the main area of the master bath, at the end of the room behind one end of the shower. “No one likes to see the toilet when you walk into a space, and you’re also providing privacy,” explains build manager Dan Faires.
