This beige powder room presents a play of opposites – the texture of pebbles is set against the smoothness of polished stone

Windowless and enclosed, the powder room offers designers a chance to break with a home's overall decor for a more playful, individual air.

This modest space has been remodeled by Jennifer Corredor of J Design Group as part of a condominium refurbishment. Several elements combine to give this central, yet almost hidden powder room a one-off aesthetic, says Corredor.

"To complement the existing wave-shaped wall I introduced a textured pebble tile surface, with a contrasting smooth marble feature wall. I set the vein of the stone two ways for interest.

"The focus of the room, however, is the sink. This is carved from a solid marble slab, sourced from Italy, and weighs over 800lb."

The wider decor combines the classic and modern and this theme is echoed subtly here.


"An ornate mirror adds a touch of the exotic, while the sculptural toilet, also circular, offers a more minimalist, high-tech presence.

"The curved wall and pristine white marble floors draw you into the space," says Corredor.
