Ornate powder room by Iris Dankner, Iris Designs
The powder room offers an opportunity for hosts to send a wordless assurance to their guests – you are important. The attention to detail lavished on this often small space is all about pampering and luxury.
This rather grand powder room forms part of a whole-house remodel by interior designer Iris Dankner. The owners had asked for a glamorous aesthetic throughout the interior and this extends to the powder room, says Dankner.
"I designed a coffered ceiling to set the scene and introduced the textural appeal of Venetian plaster on the wall above a dado rail. The rail itself is made of tiny onyx tiles, which are repeated in larger format on the lower wall.
"The floor is also finished in onyx, in the same small tile format as the dado rail."
Dankner chose a highly reflective antique mirrored console for the vanity base, which supports a freestanding onyx bowl.
An antique chandelier in Venetian glass and a mirror with an embellished frame contribute to the glamour and sense of private luxury. A light sheer drape at the window adds further texture to the glowing design.
