A powder room is a great place to create a sense of drama as it is small and intimate and is visited for just a few minutes at a time. The black/white/gray geometric cement tiles continue the theme from the kitchen to bathroom. The pattern in this powder room is a bit different but the flooring adds a bit more drama.
Attached to the mudroom, this powder room is the main bathroom for guests. The walls are covered in the same beach-y shade of gray-green used in the mudroom, with a custom piece of art by David Bromstad that depicts a large silhouette of a fish.
Caswell creates drama in this powder room with dark horizontal faux bois tile, slate shower walls and molded glass countertops. Since her client's trusted her with the rest of their home, she designed this room as a complete surprise to them.
A mini stacked stone accent wall behind the vanity receives full attention in the powder room. The simple, custom-sized mirror floats on a wood frame beyond with strip lights mounted in the recessed area at the top and bottom. Chunky stone mixed with smooth concrete and a metallic color scheme give an elegant vibe to the design.
With its focus on functionality and hardwearing materials, the bathroom can be one of the hardest spaces in the home for DIY design. Still, Tamara found a way to put her own stamp on this room over time. “I worked on our house myself over the last few years,” she remembers. “I DIYed open shelves in the bathroom. I also continued my painting venture in the shower, and stenciled the bathroom floors.” The result is a beautiful, spa-type feel from the floor up, accented by lots of bright, leafy green plants.
