The homeowners wanted a dramatic and luxurious look, but also functionality. The custom vanity features a neoclassical style, while concealing the power for blow dryers and curling irons. Beveled diamond-shaped mirrors are used to create a sophisticated backsplash.
The Neoclassic-inspired vanity conceals the power for blow dryers and curling irons, as well as an integrated towel warmer. The vanity is topped with polished Calacutta marble, and the backsplash creates a luxurious feel with beveled diamond-shaped mirrors.
To create an architectural element worthy of a luxury hotel, Atlanta designer Rachel Greathouse started with a $30 mirror at a flea market. She painted the four-paned frame in a gloss that matched the wall color, and then hung the mirror at a 45 degree angle for an interesting visual effect. From its place above the bed, the mirror can appear like a diamond-shaped window because it reflects the windows on the opposite wall.
Ornate decorative moldings adorn the walls and ceiling and are complemented with black paint and gold accents. The ceiling is a standout feature which consists of multiple elevations of diamond-shapes designed to draw the eye to the center of the ceiling where an oversized brass chandelier resides. A crescent-shaped macaron bar adds visual interest and additional counter space. The back wall features handsome antique mirrors to serve as the backdrop to the Macaron by Patisse signage embellished with brass-trimmed shelves designed for additional storage and showcasing macaron towers.
