This sleek powder room uses colour, texture and strong, sculptural form to engage the eye.

Designer Laila Colvin of 2id Interiors says the apartment containing this powder room is contemporary and elegant, with Calacatta marble on the floors, walnut panels on the walls and an eggplant purple colour used as an accent.

"In keeping with this look, we wanted to introduce a minimalist vanity into the powder room but to also go bold on the walls. To achieve this, we sourced a purple faux cowhide wallpaper for two accent walls and the clients loved it!"

However, the vibrant, luxuriously textured wallcovering is balanced out with other features – such as the large back-lit mirror. The mirror not only doubles the size of the space visually, it also bounces light around the internally positioned powder room

"In addition, we came up with the concept of a strong, simple marble pedestal for the sink. When we introduced the frosted glass sink, it looked like a sculpture sitting on a display pedestal. We felt in love with that arty look and incorporated it into the design," says Colvin. "We paired the pedestal sink with a wall-mounted tap – another interesting detail."
