About the client:
California residents contact Robeson Design and ask me to design their new home… from the ground up! This two-year project is one of my favorite projects and took a group of talented craftsmen to complete. Our clients have graciously allowed me to share the design aspect of their new home but requested we respect their privacy so we will leave their identity and exact location out of this blog. I can say, they love their new home and remain friends of Robeson Design to this day.
What the client wanted:
A beautiful home that celebrates life!
- Not too many on this project. The budget was healthy and the clients trusted me completely.
Changes I made:
- I borrowed space from the unused wine closet accessible from the Dining Room and opened the space up to the Powder room where the additional space would be more appreciated.
- I added a fabulous focal point wall behind the vanity sink area. The wall is covered in stone…a chevron pattern that is made of solid marble. The stone wall is by Artistic tile and was purchased from our favorite boutique tile store, BDG in San Diego.
- As with the entire home, I continued the luxury elements right on into the powder room with 8” baseboards and a 4-paneled door, which adds to the sophistication of the space. I chose a wall-mounted chrome faucet with an exceptionally high polished finish to provide water to the white bisque, oval vessel sink sitting atop the custom made vanity.
- I hung two mercury glass pendant lights to the left side of the vanity at different heights. A coordinating table lamp sits on top of the bow front furniture piece across from the vanity. Art lights accent the commissioned painting above the chest as well as coral fan art pieces stacked vertically behind the toilet.
- Gorgeous hardwood floors in a walnut finish were used throughout the home and flowed seamlessly into the powder room. I kept the horizontal direction intact as it provided a subtle feeling of space in the room. The rustic scraped texture of the wood floors adds to the family-friendly feel throughout the home.
- I was able to design a custom piece of furniture to serve as the vanity. Sexy tapered legs and exceptional chrome drawer handles enhance the look of true luxury… even in a bathroom!
- This furniture-like piece proved to be the perfect base for the oval vessel sink and minimal accessories.
- Across from the vanity, I added a beautiful bow-front chest in the newly opened space to store extra hand towels, toilet paper candles and hand soap
- Two framed pieces of coral hang on the wall behind the “Throne” and a commissioned painting adorns the wall above the bow-front chest. I chose a uniquely shaped mirror with beveled mirror frame, to hang just above the faucet on the stone wall.
Another quick tip: I have always believed the powder room is one of the most used spaces in a home and attention to detail should not be overlooked!
