2007 NKBA Design Competition Category 5 Warm Tones and Soft Touches Highlight Powder Room Finalists Powder Rooms

Designed by Tracey Scalzo, CKD, CBD, of Sarasota, FL-based Eurotech Cabinetry, Inc., and Fabiola Softas of Anne Folsom Smith Interior Design, also based in Sarasota, FL, this powder room features a Dutch Made Custom Cabinetry vanity in cherry that measures over 12 feet in length. Stepped, Honey Onyx countertops and Rosso Verona marble flooring with Honey Onyx insets add a soft detailed touch, while an anteroom provides extra space to relax. Stained glass in the windows and door add artistic appeal.

Designed around the concept of a jewelry box, this unique powder room was created by Leslie Thompson and Timothy Thompson of Naples, FL-based Into the Mist, Inc. It features a variety of products, including an Empire Industries bath vanity, Old World marble countertops and a stainless steel backsplash, chosen for its reflective qualities. Plumbing fixtures from Dornbracht USA and Hansgrohe complement a Stone Forest sink. Jim Thompson upholstered walls create a vibrant look while they provide a subtle Asian influence.

As part of a whole-house renovation, Debbie R. Gualco and co-designer Denae C. Baggs of Sacramento, CA-based Reynolds Gualco Architecture & Interior Design, created this contemporary, Asian-styled powder room. It includes a custom walnut and teak sink vanity and a wall-mounted Kohler faucet that accents the stainless steel vessel sink, also from Kohler. The room is enhanced by thickened Giallo Atlantide limestone countertops, lighting accents from the Minka Group’s “George Kovacs” Collection and Du Verre cabinet hardware.

A New Mexico-inspired style, complete with an earthy color scheme of browns and neutrals, takes center stage in this powder room designed by Cheryl Hamilton-Gray, CKD of Encinitas, CA-based Hamilton-Gray Design, Inc. The space features custom La Puerta Originals cabinetry and countertops and a carved wood vanity with a bowed front suspended off the floor. The onyx vessel sink from Stone Forest is illuminated from underneath. A terra cotta floor, from Walker Zanger, set in a herringbone pattern, completes the look.
