Sometimes when you are working on a space, the design evolves over time and you wind up with a slightly different look than you started out with. For this particular project, we have been working on the design and construction of this home for over a year now and we’ve tweaked things here and there as we’ve gone along in order to stay current and give each space the best design we can possibly give. I am over the moon excited this week as the marble has gone up in the powder bathroom in our client’s Modern With Antiques home and I am starting to see my design come to life. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to work on the construction and planning phases as well but nothing quite compares to the feeling you get when the major design elements start to go up. I just couldn’t wait any longer to post about this space, so I hope you won’t mind a little sneak peek and an update at this time.

Powder Bathroom Inspiration

The main inspiration pictures on the powder bathroom board stayed the same (as seen on our previous post, Under Construction: Modern With Antiques Powder Bathroom), but some of the major and minor details have changed. First of all, when we took out the coat closet that was behind this space, we realized we had enough room to put the toilet on the back wall. Thus giving us a larger and more dramatic space to put the sink. We knew that the marble we selected for the walls was going to be quite the statement but also maybe a little busy. So we decided to tone down the other elements in the room and wound up ordering this gorgeous yet simple sink and faucet and opted to include an inset mirror instead of a framed option. We did however want to add just a little more bling and decided to use these crystal sconces to achieve that goal. I feel so giddy getting to finally see this powder bathroom I designed so long ago finally come to life. I mean, you should have seen me picking up the wall mounted toilet flusher from the plater that I had plated in gold … I don’t think anyone should ever get that excited about a toilet flusher!

In Process

Working with Sistone on the marble fabrication has been a dream. They are so easy to work with, so professional, and create these incredible drawings beforehand where they actually scan the images of the marble you purchased and superimpose them into the drawings so you can see how the slabs meet up to decide how you want them laid out. Here are the drawings we approved … 

… and here is how it looks in real life. 

I absolutely love how this seam turned out where the two slabs of marble match up. 

This is the frame that goes around the mirror over the sink. It will create a built in backsplash for the sink as well. 

It might take a little time before we get this finished room up on the blog, but we hope you are just as excited as we are to see how it turns out. For more information on our design services email us at info@sbsdesignla.com.
