Designers Create Small, ‘Impactful’ Space
Designer Holly Rickert and co-designer Julia Kleyman of Ridgewood, NJ-based Ulrich, Inc. created this powder room, which Rickert descibes as a “petite, impactful space,” to showcase a wealth of natural materials.
“Natural slate walls and herringbone wood grain porcelain tile floors form the sturdy skeletal support for this striking beauty,” says Rickert.
An oversized 30" fabric chandelier is suspended over a black granite vessel from Stone Forest that sits on the upper of the thick bamboo cantilevered counter surfaces. Cherry cabinetry from Wood-Mode continues the warm color palette. Two large antiqued mirror cherry cabinets provide storage, and the mirrored alcove adds a layered dimensional quality.
Industrial Elements Inspire Powder Room
A study in contrast and balance, this powder room, designed by Ines Hanl and Kimberly Lewis Manning of Victoria, BC-based The Sky is the Limit Design, combines reclaimed materials and industrial details.
“Utilitarian effects include an exposed concrete wall and floor, and a raw steel support and cross bracing to the sink and countertop, which act as towel bars,” says Hanl.Cabinetry in the space is made of reclaimed solid birch, stainless steel and bamboo-in-resin panels. Products include a granite vessel from Stone Forest complemented by Cifial’s Techno single-handle lav faucet.
Powder Room Offers Study in Contrasts
This elegantly simple powder room, designed by John Mills Davies, CGBP, of San Diego-based Marrokal Design & Remodeling, offers a wealth of contrasting textures that ultimately define the space.
Davies selected Ecowood for the custom cabinetry and wood panels, which offer visually complex contrasts in zebrawood and walnut. A custom wall-hung vanity is constructed from two thick slab walnut shelves cantilevered from the recessed zebrawood wall panel. A polished glass vessel from Flotera is filled by a wall-mounted Kubrix faucet from Porta. The vessel sits atop a honed Desert Limestone CaesarStone countertop, which is the first of a series of step-down components on the vanity wall. The lower shelf offers storage for towels.
“A walnut linen closet, with zebrawood display shelves, is positioned opposite the sink and vanity,” says Davies.
