This stunning 54-square-foot powder room is part of an extensive first floor renovation that included all surfaces. The designer created a fresh and updated look to a beautiful Ladue home.
The original powder room needed updating and was heavy in its use of color and materials. The existing vanity was a short black cabinet with a green marble countertop. The room was painted red with a green ceiling. The client requested to keep the powder room’s existing vanity and brass plumbing fixtures as elements in the new space.
The designer went big and selected large-scaled elements to create a visually appealing, playful and bright room. Attention to detail and adding layers give the room a finished look.
An oversized floral wallpaper from Thibaut steals the show and provides a backdrop to stage the large design elements. Adding the new Chinoiserie mirror from Chelsea House gives the room an open feeling and radiates the natural light back into the front hall. Clean and understated Visual Comfort bamboo themed, mirrored sconces quietly provide additional light and style to the room.
Additionally, the designer redesigned the vanity to act as a show piece by raising the height, painting it blue and adding oversized and layered Addison Weeks cabinetry hardware. A light-colored quartz material was selected in contrast with the dramatic vanity. A square detail was added to the vanity top edges tying into the overall design. In addition, a complementary painted ceiling brings the eye up giving the powder room height. Simple and handsome window treatments were created to finish the space.
