Designer Jennifer Foster redid this 1990s builder bathroom for a client who did not want childish decor that her two sons would soon outgrow. The red metal tray fits with the primary colors in the pictures of Matchbox cars hanging on nearby walls, which Foster’s husband photographed specifically for the space.
