Brush Park Townhouse

The starting point for this small-but-mighty powder room, where we created a major style moment within a modest footprint, was the rich, floral Magnolia wallpaper from GP&J Baker via Kravet. The custom paint color was perfectly matched to the background of the wallpaper, and we added traditional beadboard wainscotting for a classic, textured counterpoint. A modern yet stately faucet, the Rook waterfall in Venetian Bronze combines a contemporary, masculine edge with a traditional nod to the early 1900s. Traditional elements carry over into the Sanford pedestal lavatory by Barclay Products, which channels the charm of the opulent Edwardian period. The small space called for space-saving elements that deliver the same standard of elegance, like the compact one-piece Kohler Memoirs Stately toilet and a pocket door painted in the same custom paint.
An exercise in balancing opulence and restraint, this vintage-inspired owner’s bathroom depends on just-so details for a buttoned-up period bathroom with a full suite of luxurious finishes. The color of the vanity — Cast Iron — pops against a relief of soothing, tactile marble: Mosaic Mini Versalles in honed Bianco Venatino on the floor; honed white Carrara for the countertops; and Carrara marble 3×6 with mosaic detailing on for wainscotting and niches. Set against the luxurious marble backdrop, antique burnished brass and bronze fixtures add another layer of striking visual interest. All plumbing fixtures from California Faucet in Satin Bronze Finish, and Visual Comfort Liaison Sconces by Kelly Wearstler Antique-Burnished Brass with Crackle Glass. The gentle curves of the freestanding soaking tub by MTI Baths Hamilton (66-inch mineral composite) provides a softness to the space.
This elegant children’s bathroom was designed with style longevity top of mind. The owner’s 8-year-old daughter picked this neutral, calming color scheme from several options, and we envisioned it as a palette to grow into. The pearl-colored KSI Kitchen and Bath vanity was topped with Nuage quartzite countertop, and to jazz it up, we added a few Art Deco details with faucets, plumbing fixtures and hardware. Creating a soothing environment, warm gray subway tile, bordered by a single row of penny rounds in Pumice, is paired with a linen-textured floor tile to soften the look. Matching fringed rug and towels add a playful touch.
