"Lighting is vital to any good design and it's definitely worth the splurge when it comes to your bathrooms. Whether it's a cozy powder bath for visiting guests or a large master suite where you prepare yourself for the day that lies ahead, lighting can dramatically enhance both mood and function. I love uniting the warm glow of natural light with the brilliance of sophisticated chandeliers, sconces and recessed lighting to ensure that a bathroom is ready to dazzle at any hour of the day," says designer Marie Flanigan.
Relaxation meets Second Empire style in this luxurious bathroom suite. Marble flooring leads to a large soaking tub, powder table and vanity topped with lighter-toned marble. The walk-in shower is well-lit by a beautiful chandelier.
Opulence is the key word in this marble-clad powder room. From the sleek vanity with mirrored doors, to the decorative and dramatic floor tiles, to the textured wallpaper and deep crown molding, no surface is left unadorned. Even the vessel sink and soap dispenser get in on the marble theme.
The wood-encased mirror in this powder room reflects similar architectural elements from the room beyond, bringing unity and harmony to the clean-lined, modern space. Chrome fixtures are built into the mirror, making them virtually invisible and adding to the vanity's streamlined look. The countertop and basin sink are by Concreteworks.
After a devastating fire that destroyed the client's home, some materials were retrieved from the embers and incorporated into this reconstructed half bath. Items salvaged from the ruins — travertine tile, wall sconces and a ceiling pendant — informed the inspiration for the new design in this powder room renaissance. A floating Mascarello granite countertop completes the space.
A powder room, sandwiched between the mudroom and the front entry of the HGTV Dream Home 2011, bursts with colors inspired by the Vermont landscape. "It's just this wonderful land of contrasts," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "That plays a lot into the design scheme." A wall in the powder room is dedicated to oil paintings by Dorothy Martinez.
Graphic octopus wallpaper adorns this powder room, making a strong statement in black and white. Modern fixtures are clean and minimal, allowing the whimsical wallpaper to serve as the room's focal point. A pop of red stands out as an accent.
